About leslie Kain

Leslie Kain was always writing something when she was a kid. But in her careers (psychology, Government Intelligence, nonprofits), her writing was limited to nonfiction: professional, research, etc. Finally dabbling in fiction, her short stories found their way into literary journals and anthologies. She developed personal relationships with her characters, who relentlessly nagged her into longer stories. Her debut novel, ‘Secrets In The Mirror’ was published by Atmosphere Press Sept 2022 (the audiobook will be released September 2023 and the sequel May 2024). She leverages her background and education, training & experience in psychology to write ‘Psychological Fiction With Heart’ — dark stories of flawed people whose greatest obstacles to happiness lie within them. Kain earned degrees in psychology from Wellesley College and an MBA from Boston University. Originally from “all over” the U.S. (although a piece of her heart remains in Boston), she now resides in Mexico with her husband and 17-year-old cat Sheba.
