currently "in the works."
- Leslie Cartwright -
I am a lucky mother to three handsome young men, one of whom has autism and tourettes. I am currently revising a draft of my journey over the past twenty years as mother and advocate. The process of writing this memoir has been cathartic and I have gained new perspective and insight as I reflect back over these often tumultuous times.

Canadian Author - Colin Cartwright
My father, Colin Cartwright, has self-published two books, one of which is Kootenay Bears. The book contains personal stories of my father's encounters with both Black and Grizzly bears in the East Kootenays of B.C. Canada.
"Colin has said that most times he has been in close quarters with a bear; he has been looking for a tree to climb or observing the bear down the barrel of a gun rather than taking pictures." Therefore, my father commissioned me to create the black and white illustrations of bears and wildlife throughout the book.
