National bestselling author Leslie Budewitz writes the Food Lovers' Village Mysteries, set in NW Montana, and the Spice Shop Mysteries, set in Seattle’s famed Pike Place Market. She fell in love with the Market as a college student, and still misses prowling its streets and alleys, sniffing out tasty treats and sensory delights. Leslie is a three-time Agatha Award winner: 2018 Best Short Story for "All God's Sparrows" (Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine); 2013 Best First Novel for Death al Dente, first in the Food Lovers’ Village Mysteries; and 2011 Best Nonfiction for Books, Crooks & Counselors: How to Write Accurately About Criminal Law and Courtroom Procedure. She loves to cook, eat, hike, travel, garden, and paint--not necessarily in that order. A past president of Sisters in Crime and current board member of Mystery Writers of America, Leslie lives in northwest Montana with her husband, Don Beans, a musician and doctor of natural medicine, and their gray tuxedo cat, an avid bird-watcher.
