Leslie Halpern

Just when I think I’ve got Leslie Halpern figured out, she surprises me. And that’s only one of the things I like about her!

She’s crazy about films, and knowledgeable, too, as her books Reel Romance and Dreams on Film show. She’s also interested in what makes people successful, as her book Passionate About Their Work, and her role as co-facilitator of a Law of Attraction Meet-up Group demonstrate.

Halpern reviews books and movies for various publications, and is an entertainment journalist. The list of folks she’s interviewed and written about sounds like an overview of People magazine for the past few decades.

As a member of the Poetry Ensemble of Orlando and the Florida State Poets Association, she’s quite a poet, too. Her latest surprise has come in this arena, in the form of a collaboration with artist Oral Nussbaum on their Funny Children’s Poems book series. What child could resist titles like Rub, Scrub, Clean the Tub; Shakes, Cakes, Frosted Flakes, or Frogs, Hogs, Puppy Dogs?

Halpern reviewed my first poetry collection, Red Wax Rose, for Suite 101, and here’s what she had to say about my forthcoming novel, Sewing Holes:

“In Sewing Holes, Darlyn Finch Kuhn presents a Southern girl’s experiences with family, friends, and faith in an intimate little story with universal appeal. Eloquently expressed, yet easily accessible, this touching coming-of-age masterpiece speaks to the emotional artist within each of us, weaving pieces of our past into something beautiful for the future.”
