Leslie Vedder (she/her) is a queer ace author who writes fairytale retellings with girl adventurers and heroes. She loves writing, reading, coffee, anime, cats, geeking out over fictional characters, and her partner—not necessarily in that order!  (•‿•)

Her favorite place in the world is the Broken Shovels Farm Sanctuary, where she volunteers with puppies and visits rad rescue goats with big personalities!


She lives in Colorado with her girlfriend and two spoiled house cats, and when she's not writing, she's trying out new vegan dessert recipes!

Her debut YA novel THE BONE SPINDLE is forthcoming in Spring 2022 from Penguin / Putnam Young Readers.
