Thank you for visiting my website. I am a writer who is constantly in search. My journey is fascinating and leads to…love.

The best thing about my writing buddy, Jakita, is that whenever I read my work to her, she listens attentively and wags her tail with approval. Unconditional love. I wish that for everyone.


Leslie Hachtel was born in Ohio, raised in New York and has been a gypsy most of her adult life. Her various occupations, including licensed veterinary technician, caterer, horseback riding instructor for the disabled and advertising media buyer have given her a wealth of experiences.

However, it has been writing that has consistently been her passion. She sold an episode of a TV show, had a screenplay optioned and is now working on novel number six.  “Texas Summer”, her contemporary, is now available on all major e-book sites and in print. “The Defiant Bride” is also available as an e-book and in print, as well. . “Captain’s Captive” is scheduled for release later in 2015 from Black Opal Books. And now, “Hannah’s War”, her historical set in the Civil War, will be published by Eternal Press.

Her murder mystery, “Harriet”,  is available on Amazon.

Leslie currently lives in Memphis, Tennessee with her fabulously supportive husband, Bob, her wonderful stepson, Matt and her writing buddy, Jakita, a terrier.
