About the author:
Born in the San Fernando Valley, Valerie Marie Leslie grew up on the stage and somewhat in front of the camera: singing, dancing and acting like most residing in Southern California. In the interim of rationed alone-time as a kid, she discovered her passion and inclination for song writing, then poetry. Little did she realize the perpetuity of this practice.

She was transplanted to Washington State at age 17, where she completed school with a Bachelor's degree of Music in Theory/Composition. Post-college, she unconsciously labored at convenient but disaffiliated jobs while venturing to satisfy her composing appetency, achieving very humble credits to her name.

As for the poetry, she kept it confined to the darkness of her nightstand... until now. She works a full-time job with a short commute from her home in Bellingham, WA, where she shares a house with her husband and two cats.

Even the Smallest Bird Casts a Shadow


Authored by Valerie Marie Leslie

Valerie Marie Leslie has unlocked the vault to her scantly illuminated adolescent mind, self-sabotaging attitude, and surrendered adulthood through her coherently random own words; poems that could be construed as diary entries, lyrics to songs, and unfinished business.

Though this collection of vulnerable yet guarded poetry enters a cave of frustration, self-pity, confusion, and blundering verse, the understandable expression of her words is the torch. She grows up while simultaneously remaining the same with every thought, feeling and chapter. Now allowing strangers to gain entry onto private property, she's conscious of the reality that there is no turning back from these pages.

The way it's meant to be
Forward as we go
On the road in which
A clearing is all we know
