I am saddened to report that New York Times Bestselling author LA Banks (Leslie Esdaile Banks) passed away this morning.

All funds raised from the LA Banks Auction will be given to her daughter Helena. My thoughts go out to her friends and family. And I thank all who participated  and gathered together to help this author in need.

If you’re in the Philly Area, The Liar’s Club is hosting a big Benefit Party to help the family with final needs and expenses and to celebrate Leslie’s life. It’s on Saturday, August 6th and there will be music, drinks and a silent auction. Find out more about the Writer’s Bash here.
