I am Judy Leslie, the author of For the Love of Ireland. It is a historical fiction about a 1880’s Chicago couple, Ireland’s Land League and the secret Irish-American organization the Clan na Gael. To learn more about my novel please go to http://www.for-the-love-of-ireland.com
My blog is a place for me to share photos and tidbits about the past. The gilded age is my favorite time period. So much was going on in the world at the time. You are welcome to post photos and articles you find interesting as long as they have to do with Ireland or the Victorian era.
I have studied both literary and popular fiction at the University of Washington, and taken classes from several published authors. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Resource and am now retired from the corporate world. I have also studied design and enjoy photography and appreciate the wonderful work of others. I love traveling throughout Europe and for two years I lived in Liege, Belgium. My home now is just outside of Seattle, Washington. My grown girls have traveled the world and my youngest attended the London School of Economics and got her graduate degree in world business. My husband is the proud owner of a Harley Davidson motorcycle and we often tour the back roads of the US together (I sit on the back).
