~Every child should have a story-teller in their life.~
Hi! I’m Lesa. That’s Lesa as in Lisa, only with an E.
I grew up at my Grandmother’s knee, listening to the French folk tales my animated Grandma Ida shared. A love of stories was born and my imagination took off!
I started out as a songwriter, and over the years wrote skits and plays for church. It wasn’t until I became a grandmother myself that I decided to write my first short story. Inspired by my own grand-daughter, I set out to write stories filled with faith, friendship & fun.
I entered my very first story in a contest and was pleasantly surprised it was one of eleven winners! This story, Operation Space Cats, The Rescue Mission is now featured in the Space Kitties Anthology.
I decided then and there to turn the story into a series. Each book will be filled with beautiful full-color illustrations, and amazing child & cat friendly covers. Operation Space Cats is in the works, and the series is coming soon!
When I’m not writing (or editing) you’ll usually find me with a good book in hand, a little gardening shovel for planting container flowers, or playing with the grand-kiddo’s. It’s a fantabbielous life! 🙂
Furry crew to the rescue! When Tebbs, the curious cat discovers part of his human family is missing in space, he plans to go on a rescue mission with Granny.

Enter the space cats … A mixed bunch of furry felines who have many lessons to learn about what it takes to make a team great. Bravery, teamwork, and most of all faith!
