Gayle Leeson? Who in the World?

by Gayle Leeson

Hi. I'm Gayle Leeson, and I'm honored these Cozy Chicks have given me a place to roost here in their impressive hen house. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.

I've been around the cozy mystery world for quite a while, although some of you might know me as Amanda Lee, author of the embroidery mystery series, or GayleTrent, author of the Daphne Martin cake decorating series and the Myrtle Crumb series.

As Gayle Leeson, I write the Down South Cafe mystery series and the Ghostly Fashionista mystery series. I've also written two--almost three--Victoria Square books with Cozy Chicks' own Lorraine Bartlett.

I'll talk more about my characters in my next post, but here are a few interesting things you might not know about me:

  • I'm mom to a set of boy/girl twins who are 345 months old (Did that make me sound younger than it would have had I said they are almost twenty-four years old?) 
  • I have a Great Pyrenees named Cooper.
  • Cooper has a girlfriend. She is a cat named Willow, who belongs to our neighbors but followed us home one day and stayed. Cooper slobbered on her once; and when I tried to wipe it off, she hissed at me! When I walk Cooper, she goes with us and visits her family.
  •  I love Funko Pops! Look how cute Edgar Allan Poe is with his little raven! I also currently have on my desk Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Momba Womba (from Scooby-Doo), and Jesse from Breaking Bad. I have others, but those are the ones providing inspiration right now.  
  • I get a kick out of fun socks (see what I did there?). If you also enjoy wearing fun footwear, then check out my current giveaway where you can be entered to win the prize shown below. Good luck!

Welcome, Gayle! Hmmm...I should wear more fun socks. I only seem to have Christmas ones.

I am an old school girl! I carry my little calendar book in my purse and totally depend on it. Oh yes, I love fun socks too!!!

Hi Gayle, we are so happy to have you with us! Love Cooper, what a sweetie! And it’s cool that he has a cat friend. Looking forward to your blogs.

Gayle said...

You need fun socks to make you smile as you're kicking butts and taking names. LOL

Gayle said...

I tried to put socks and hearts emojis, but Blogger wouldn't let me.

Gayle said...

I carry a little calendar in my purse, forget it's there, find it months later, and say, "Oh, yeah! I need this!" LOL

Gayle said...

Thank you, Mary!

Cooper is beautiful! I’m glad you will be posting with the Cozy Chicks...I love your books. My nephew collects Pops also. He has a ton of them.

Gayle said...

Thank you, Dianne!

Gayle said...

Thank you, Chris! They have Pops that you'd never even imagine--or, at least, I wouldn't have until I saw them at a local comic convention. :)
