Leslie Tourish was an English major, who became a photojournalist, then a psychotherapist, and has come back full circle to what she’s always loved - writing. Her debut fiction novel, The Headshrinker’s Brigade, was published in 2018 by Treaty Oak Publishers. This book tells the story of Julia Longley, a young woman who trades one crazy world for another against the backdrop of working in a small mental health clinic in the Texas hill country. Who is more challenging to Julia, the clients or the staff?

She’s currently working on her second novel about the complex world of twin sisters who are at cross purposes while being pursued by the kind of guy you definitely don’t want to meet alone in a dark alley.
