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 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 page inspire you to travel, write, and read many pages–of my books–and in the big book we call life.
