Leslie Keller used her experience in the restaurant business, and love of the Arizona desert, to create the characters for her cozy mysteries. Menu for Murder, is the first book in the series and has received five star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.
Cocktails at Sunset continues the story of Jayne Stanford the less-than-stellar server.
She spends her limited free time hiking in the desert, savoring wine, and as a volunteer for animal rescues. As a breast cancer survivor, she volunteers for EBeauty, a non-profit organization created to support women undergoing treatment for cancer. She lives in Phoenix, with her partner and their two rescue cats.
