About the Author

When you see her, Leslie may be wearing a silk dress and fishnets or wearing XtraTuf boots and carrying fishing nets, depending on whether she's at her fish camp in the Alaska wilderness or on a speaking tour outside. She's happy in both places talking about the books, places, and topics that move her most. Her eleven books include The Wonder Years: 40 Women over 40 on Aging, Faith, Beauty and Strength; Crossing the Waters: Following Jesus through the Storms, the Fish, the Doubt, and the Seas, which won Christianity Today's 2017 Book of the Year in Christian living; The Spirit of Food; Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers; and Surviving the Island of Grace: A Life on the Wild Edge of America. Her essays, appearing in The Atlantic, Christianity Today, Beliefnet, and Orion, take on an uncommon diversity of interests: wilderness, theology of the body, culture-making, motherhood, narrative theology, and points between and beyond. As much as I love words on the page, I'm not fully satisfied until I get to speak them in person with others, Leslie adds. She's honored to travel and share from her passions nationally and internationally at conferences, universities, churches, and retreats. With three master's degrees, she has taught collegiate classes for many years, including six years in Seattle Pacific University's MFA program. If she can't see her audience, radio is a good second. She has appeared on more than 150 radio shows including Family Life Today, Prime Time America, Focus on the Family, and Chris Fabry Live! She conducts writing workshops around the country and is the founder of the Harvester Island Wilderness Workshop, a writing and spiritual retreat center on the Alaskan island where her family lives and fishes commercially. Recent guest writers have included Philip Yancey, Ann Voskamp, Luci Shaw, and Bret Lott. Find out more at www.leslieleylandfields.com.
