London-born Australian Lesley Truffle has travelled extensively and worked in London and Japan. At present she’s living in a garret in Melbourne.
She’s worked as a secondary teacher, photographer, hotel maid, fringe actor and in art galleries, bars, nightclubs and other jobs too ghastly to mention.
While exhibiting her art photography in Melbourne galleries Lesley realized she wanted to create imaginary stories and interior monologues and returned to writing.
Lesley is devoted to Method Writing. During the research process for The Scandalous Life of Sasha Torte, she immersed herself in the dark art of pastry making and undertook an intrepid journey across the wild, wild West Coast of Tasmania.
She also studied Tasmanian history and culture while stoically working her way through the fine wines and delectable produce of the island.
