Leslie M. Browning grew up in the small fishing village of Stonington, Connecticut. A longtime student of philosophy, nature and art, these themes permeate her work. In her writing, Browning explores the confluence of the natural landscape and the interior landscape. A proud native of New England, she travels often throughout the region using her photography, drawing, and writing to explore the ecological and cultural identity of the Northeast. Leslie is the author of numerous award-winning titles. Balancing her passion for writing with her love of learning, Leslie sits on the Board of Directors for the Independent Book Publisher’s Association. With over 3,000 members, IBPA is the largest publishing trade association in the U.S. She is a graduate of the University of London and a Fellow with the International League of Conservation Writers. She is partner at Hiraeth Press; Co-Founder of Written River: An Anthology of Eco-Poetics as well as Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Wayfarer. In 2011, Browning opened Homebound Publications and in 2015 went on to establish Owl House Books as an imprint of Homebound Publications devoted to children’s literature. She is currently working to complete a B.A. in Liberal Arts at Harvard University’s Extension School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Browning has freelanced for Rhode Island Monthly, ReImagining Magazine, Coastal Connecticut Magazine, Mead: A Magazine of Literature and Libation, The Wayfarer and Written River.
