Lesley G. Thomas

I grew up in a cross-cultural family in the Alaskan Arctic, a fishing boat in SE Alaska, and a homestead on old Puget Sound (now called Salish Sea).

I did ecological research on the effects of oil spills on arctic salt marsh, lived overseas, and for many years delved into deep mythology and indigenous world traditions. This inspired me to write my award-winning novel "Flight of the Goose" about a shaman and a scientist in Alaska.

My next novel is set in the near future and deals with human resilience in ecological and societal collapse.
