One my favorite authors Leslie Esdaile (aka L.A. Banks of Vampire Huntress fame) is gravely ill. Friends and family aren't giving too many details, but Leslie's condition is serious enough that the medical bills have become, in her friend Tina Wise's words, "astronomical."
[Edit to add: I found out late this evening that Leslie has late stage adrenal cancer.]
Leslie is a wonderful, caring person, someone who gives back to the writing community. I was fortunate enough to meet her at the RWA 2005 National Conference in Reno. I can't say enough how warm and encouraging she was to me, a newbie with my bright orange "First Conference" ribbon.
A fund has been set up on her behalf for contributions towards medical expenses:
Leslie Esdaile Fund Account #81538801 Police and Fire Federal Credit Union Operations Center 901 Arch Street Philadelphia, PA 19107-2404 215-931-0300
