I used to tell people that I was born in Manhattan and raised in the Bronx; but the truth is that apart from the stellar education I received at the Fieldston School in Riverdale, much of who I am was shaped by my two grandmothers, who encouraged me to follow my bliss long before it became the sort of catchphrase you find on tee-shirts and new-age tchotchkes...

Praise for Leslie's Books

“Unputdownable!”

Margaret George, author of The Autobiography of Henry VIII

“Full of sumptuous and well- researched details …Becoming Marie Antoinette by Juliet Grey, the first novel in a new trilogy, gives readers a more sympathetic look than usual at the ill- fated French queen.”

Philadelphia Examiner, five stars

“Leslie Carroll’s books on royalty are an irresistible combination of People Magazine and the History Channel.”

Chicago Tribune

“A lively and sensitive portrait of a young princess in a hostile court, and one of the most sympathetic portrayals of the doomed queen.”

Lauren Willig, bestselling author of The Pink Carnation series

“Steeped in rich historical fun facts and couched in the context of previous royal romances and rituals, Leslie Carroll’s American Princess is heartwarming, informative, and compulsively readable.”

Allison Pataki, NY Times bestselling author of The Accidental Empress

“Writing history as entertaining and engaging as this is truly an art.”
