L. Penelope


Location: Maryland Romance Writers Stage

L. Penelope
Leslye Penelope was born in the Bronx, but left before she could acquire an accent. She skipped kindergarten, went to five elementary schools in six years, and after living in DC and New Jersey, settled in Maryland, which she considers home.

Writing has always been her first love, and she has been doing it since she could hold a pen. However, the idea of making a living off the stories she wrote seemed far-fetched, so she went off to study filmmaking in college. SHe's equally left and right-brained and had to balance the artsy with a healthy dose of computer programming. This all led to a graduate degree in Multimedia and a career in website development, but she never stopped writing.

She's a two-time VONA/Voices alumna and a member of Romance Writers of America and Maryland Romance Writers. She lives in Maryland with her husband and two furry dependents: a pit bull so vicious she’s a registered therapy dog and a semi-feral cat.
