As a consumer-services writer, one of my strengths is taking complicated material and transforming it into crisp, clear prose. I’m comfortable writing in a range of styles including bylined pieces, ghosted blogs and books, news releases, newsletters, advertorials, website copy, brochure copy, white papers and more.

Please take a look around my site to learn more about me and my work. Thanks for visiting!

Articles

My clients include Parade, Real Simple, More, Woman’s Day, Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, Harper’s Bazaar, Parenting, Parents and dozens of other national magazines and websites.

About

Leslie HeadshotAt some point I’ll come up with some clever copy for this page. But until then … I live on Long Island with my husband and three children. When I’m not in my office writing, I’m in my car shuffling my kids between karate, football and dance. On weekends you can usually find me at a dance competition. No, not mine, my daughter’s. Though I did compete in the adult category with some fellow dance moms (and a dad) and we won first place! The fact that we were the only ones in the category doesn’t stop me from saying I’m a national dance champion.

I’m a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors and the Association of Health Care Journalists.
