Bookouture are due to publish Lesley’s second book, The Serial Killer’s Daughter, in June.
Commissioning editor Abigail Fenton said,
In just a short time working with Lesley, she made an immediate impression as someone hugely fun to work with, as well as an incredibly talented writer. We will miss her wit, strong opinions, and chilling characters immensely. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
Thomas & Mercer, an imprint of Amazon Publishing, published Lesley’s crime fiction debut, Truth Lies Buried, in 2016. Amazon Publishing editor Jane Snelgrove said,
We were shocked and saddened to learn the news of Lesley’s passing – she was a wonderful storyteller and a joy to work with, and our team will miss her dearly. We send our deepest condolences to her family.
She will be hugely missed by all of us.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
