Lesley Grigg

Traveler + Writer

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

St. Augustine

This is one of my favorite quotes for a few reasons. Not only does it encompass my two passions–travel and books–but it motivates me to keep exploring, keep reading, and keep writing.

Yes, my name is Lesley, and I’m a writer. Writing has taken me down many roads both personally and professionally, and those journeys have only fueled more writing. It’s a wonderful yet sometimes vicious cycle.

Words I have written have appeared in books and on websites, and have been spoken by actors on stage and screen. These words have been inspired by travel, jobs, friends, family–basically anything and everything I know. That’s the way to do it, right? Write what you know and pretend you know the rest. What can I say… I’m an honest liar.

May the words on this site inspire you to travel, write, and read many pages (of my books) in the big book we call life.
