Born and raised in South Africa, Robert Leslie left his home country to work in then-Southern Rhodesia in 1972, with not a care in the world. Salisbury was a bustling, vibrant, fun city at that time. Unfortunately that did not apply to the rest of the country. Winds of change had begun to blow. His experiences through this era eventually inspired his first novel, Butcher Bird.
These days he lives in Bowral, a country town south of Sydney, Australia. With casual boutiques, and an abundance of friendly restaurants and coffee lounges, it’s an environment close to nature and conducive to imaginative writing.
When he is not at his computer, he enjoys walking or riding his bike beside a tranquil creek home to fat, lazy ducks.
