Leslie Quotes

The seed of a story always starts with an idea or picture.


The Headshrinker's Brigade


This is the story of Julia Longley, a young woman who grew up without a sense of belonging. Julia is determined not to repeat her mother's mistake and marry the wrong guy. She thinks she's found the perfect man in Nick, a handsome, charming, star reporter for the newspaper where Julia is a photojournalist.

But when her coverage of a tragic accident leaves her in a temporary state of blindness, Nick’s increasingly controlling ways are anything but loving and supportive. Julia must search alone for a career more suited to her. Her choice: go back to school and get a degree in counseling.

A school assignment lands Julia an internship at a mental health clinic, where her first mission is to moderate a group therapy session. Nothing in any textbook has prepared Julia for The Headshrinker's Brigade.

What Julia learns from this motley band of suffering souls gives her the strength to make tough decisions in her search for love, for a place to call home, and for something even more important: herself.
