Leslie Esdaile (“L.A.” Banks)
It is with great sadness that I heard of the passing of talented writer and friend Leslie Esdaile Banks (L.A. Banks). The few times our paths crossed at the ECBACC convention she was always beaming in the fact that she was doing something she loved – writing stories. My prayers go out to her family and those who circled around her when illness struck. Her work speaks for itself... we've lost a great one. May her stories live on in us all.
