VJ Books Presents Author Leslie Glass!

Author Leslie GlassLeslie Glass was raised in New York City. Her mother, Elinor Gordon, a civil rights and social activist, was a prot_g_ of Eleanor Roosevelt and held the first conference on Race in America for President Johnson. Leslie's TV and film producer father, Milton Gordon, needed a new TV series after his success with Lassie and offered Leslie $100 to create one. She created the TV series, Fury.

Leslie studied classical guitar and voice at the Mannes College of music and received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College. While Leslie did not have the skills to be a professional musician, her professors and mentors did not echo the family view on her writing potential.

Leslie has worked as a writer in a variety of formats. In New York she worked in advertising, publishing, and at New York Magazine. She was a free lance magazine writer of both feature articles and fiction. Leslie is also a playwright and worked as a scriptwriter on The Guiding Light before turning to fiction full time.

She is the author of 15 novels including 9 best-selling April Woo thrillers. Her novel, Over His Dead Body, which was first produced by Robert Brustein as the play, Strokes, was optioned for a feature film. Her novels Getting Away with It, Modern Love, and the April Woo series were all optioned for feature films.

In her nonprofit life, Leslie served as president of Plays for Living, a national organization that has been creating and producing plays on social issues for 70 years. She served as Public Member of the Middle States Commission of Higher Education for six years, was trustee of The New York City Police Foundation for many years, a vice president of the Asolo Repertory Theatre, and board member of Sarasota Reading Festival and Writers of America.

Deeply committed to giving back, Leslie established the Leslie Glass Foundation in 1990 to support important nonprofit organizations and professor-student mentoring in a wide variety of projects. In the spring of 2011, Leslie Glass with her daughter, Lindsey, established the nonprofit foundation Reach Out Recovery to promote addiction prevention, recovery education and community solutions.
