I’m Joey Leslie. I’m a writer living and loving in Nashville with my dog Moses, who is awesome, especially because he doesn’t shed and doesn’t put up with anybody’s shit. Even mine.
I studied journalism at Western Kentucky University. I have no idea what my GPA was but I’m super proud of my column “Unprotected Text” which I wrote for WKU Herald. Sure, that was a hundred years ago and I can’t find it on the website anymore, but it did win a first Place award from the Kentucky Press Association back in the day. Shwing!
Now, I’m working in corporate America by day, with a buzzword in my job title (fun!), and working on my first book by night. It’s scheduled to hit stores some time before I die. In the meantime, please enjoy my blog, Pretty Much. Consider it an appetizer. A free appetizer! Tell your friends!
I don’t want to give too much away, but one of my working titles is ‘Expiration Dating.’ Spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well.
Speaking of sight… I believe in vision boards. And I believe they can be dangerous.
Last year, I created one and, with a glue stick and some random travel clippings, sent myself all over the globe. I ended up eating a fancy hotdog in Paris (naughty vegetarian!), dancing blindfolded like a damn zen fool at yoga retreat in Nicaragua, and wandering around Tokyo trying to figure out who (if anyone) (everyone?) was gay. I also went to San Fran, Chicago, DC, and New York. And Des Moines, Akron and Pikeville. Now, I have the travel bug forever. Boy Wanders… ‘nother possible book title.
