About

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths”

– Walt Disney
Leslie Martini

Experience

Leslie Martini has a M.A. in English Literature and writes non-fiction for magazines, newspapers and websites, is a marketing copywriter for businesses, a literacy tutor for the underserved, and a college essay consultant for high schoolers. Her first book, Matilda, The Algonquin Cat, will be published this fall by Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing.

The inspiration for Matilda, The Algonquin Cat, came from my mother who took me to the Algonquin Hotel when I was a child. My mother believed New York City represented the best of everything: culture, music, art, and literature. The Algonquin had it all, and…a famous feline in residence. 

National Writing Organizations

Leslie is an active member of the Society of Children Book Writers and Illustrators, 826Boston, Writers Digest, National Association of Independent Writers and Editors, the International Woman’s Writing Guild and Writer’s Room Boston.

Leslie Martini is a terrific writer and her skills, tips, and technique really improved my daughter's essays on her college applications. Leslie went beyond that, however. Her encouragement and supportive style gave my daughter additional confidence as she tackled one of the most stressful parts of her senior year.
