Leslie Crawford is a rising literary mogul in her own right.  Born and raised in Baltimore, Leslie has successfully navigated the pages of her own story right before our eyes.  With over ten years of experience, she has self-published eight books of her own while also guiding other authors.  Leslie began Exposed Books Publishing, LLC, in 2013 to support other authors in need. 

In 2018 she was able to turn her passion into her full-time business.  In that same year, Leslie also knew that she wanted to do something different with her writing. Instantly an idea came about, and Leslie created When Children Write. When Children Write is a literacy program where Leslie works with young girls and boys, where she teaches them the process of writing and publishing a book. Since officially launching the program in October 2018, Leslie has held several after school programs in various schools throughout Maryland. From 2018 to 2020, Leslie has turned over 200 students into published authors by writing short stories.

As an author herself, Leslie is empathetic to the needs of first-time authors. She understands how nerve-wracking and scary the literary world can be, so her industry knowledge is credible. Exposed Books Publishing LLC also offers self-publishing workbooks that serve as the blueprint for various written work templates for interested authors.   


Her literary empire is creating a movement where children will fall in love with reading and writing. Leslie has also been featured in various media platforms such as Sheen Magazine, Digital Journal, and Fox21. She is maneuvering like a boss as she inspires others through literature.

"Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with me… for outlining the path to making this a success and doing it the right way. I am so grateful I reached out to you because it certainly helped. I did not believe I could do this; I had the idea for a while but would push it to the side. You definitely gave me the tools and encouragement to make me feel this is something attainable!"
