Leslie Crewe

Lesley grew up in Montreal, QC. After graduating from Concordia University with a degree in English and Education, she and her hubby settled down in Homeville, Cape Breton and raised a family.
From 2000-2005, Lesley was a features writer and columnist (Home Fires) for Cape Bretoner Magazine, and from 2005-2009, a columnist (Lesley’s Letters) with the on-line magazine, Cahoots.

In 2005 her first novel, Relative Happiness, was published and became an instant bestseller.  Lesley has since written 8 novels.

In 2012, Relative Happiness was optioned for film, and in 2014, Lesley’s characters came to life on the big screen. The movie was produced by Wreckhouse Productions.

Quote: “Although born and raised in Montreal a hundred years ago, I live in Cape Breton with my retired husband, two warring cats and a murder of crows. Our kids flew the coop long ago. I got into writing as a way to avoid housework and I’ve been on a diet for over fifty years with no success. I like to walk, read and collect old children’s books. It is my mission in life to hug as many animals as possible.
