About the Author

Leslie DarcyIn Leslie Darcy’s debut novel, she weaves a tale of intrigue and passion and explores the ageless themes of jealousy, greed and desire. “I have always been fascinated by Knights and the stories that arose from that time period. The idea that chivalry, honor and duty were words to live by always seemed very romantic to me. I hope that I’ve given the readers a sense of this while at the same time providing a mystery to solve.” When she is not strolling the grounds of the Renaissance Festivals in her royal garb, Leslie can be found at home in New Jersey with her husband, Anthony and their five pets.

In addition to her writing, Leslie is an accomplished actress who has appeared in dozens of stage productions with The Bergen County Players and other NJ area community theaters. Most recently, her peformance in "The Female Odd Couple" earned her a Perry nomination for Lead Actress as Olive.
