Our sweet Gidget, who we lost to cancer in Feb. 2017

Lesli Richardson (she/her) is the author behind the curtain of her better-known and USA Today Bestseller pen name, Tymber Dalton (her “wild child” side). She’s a native Floridian who lives in the Tampa Bay region of Florida with her spouse of over twenty-five years. She also has a poly partner, aka the Viking (who passed away on 10/26/21). Her household is overrun by too many pets of various species, some of whom are intent upon world domination and would be in charge already, if only they had the thumbs and literacy to take over social media accounts of their own.

The USA Today Bestselling Author (as Tymber) and two-time EPIC award winner is also the author of over two hundred books and counting.

When she’s not playing D&D with her friends, tying up the Viking, being tied up by the Viking, making chainmail jewelry, or shooting skeet, she’s a part-time Viking shield-maiden in training, a kink/BDSM presenter and educator, and is a volunteer on the management team of a local alternative lifestyle community center. She’s also a solitary, eclectic Pagan witch who usually succeeds in not hexing bad drivers who piss her off.

She lives in her own little world but it’s okay, because they all know her there. And since learning at age 49 that she has ADHD, and then diagnosed with autism, it explains why all the “voices” in her head play so well together.

She also loves to hear from readers! Please feel free to sign up for her newsletter to keep abreast of the latest news, snarkage, and releases.
