10 Things Most People Don’t Know About Me
1. I have a Master’s degree in English.
Most people don’t know this since I just finished up my course work this past November. I’m very proud of this accomplishment. It’s the hardest thing I’ve done in my life.
2. I have been to India.
In 2005, I traveled to India with my martial arts instructor to help him teach there.
3. I love tea.
I love it so much that I have an electric burner hooked up in my room, so I can have tea brewing as I work on things.
4. I have ten years of martial arts training.
I have studied a traditional Korean style, Judo, and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
5. I own a book on how to speak Elvish.
6. I have a pet snake. He is a gopher snake named Indy.
7. I love Blues music.
8. I love old technology. I still have an original Playstation and a Mini disk player. I love them both.
9. I used to run a Redwall RPG website. Long live Lunar Isle!
10. I have a thing for blondes. Ever since I saw Zack from Saved By The Bell…*sigh*
Fallenwood—a land where magic is the life force, dragons are sages, and wizards good and evil battle for supremacy. When 23-year-old Ash is thrust into the middle of Fallenwood’s power struggles, she is also forced to face her own inner battles. Life on Earth was hard enough on Ash, who is locked in grief for her stepfather. Now, the fate of Fallenwood rests on her shoulders. She must destroy the Great Crystal—the catalyst for all the land’s magic. As the kingdoms prepare for war, Ash must look inside to find the power to save the world, and herself.
Leslie Soule lives in Sacramento, California. Fallenwood is her first fantasy novel. She has received her B.A. in English from Sacramento State University and is currently working on her Master’s degree in English at National University.
