A True Story

Christy Leskovar align= Christy Leskovar was born in Butte, Montana, and grew up in Kennewick, Washington. She graduated from Seattle University with degrees in mechanical engineering and French, and then joined Bechtel Corporation in Gaithersburg, Maryland, where she worked on the design of nuclear power plants. After stints in Kansas, Barcelona, and San Francisco, Christy transferred to an assignment in Las Vegas.

It was during a visit to her hometown that she learned the shocking news about her great-grandmother having been arrested for murder in 1913.

Christy left her engineering career set on discovering what happened, and to write a book about her discoveries. Her original goal was to write one book about all four grandparents. As she began to pursue the story, she quickly discovered that there was far too much for one book. Now there are three. Christy Leskovar’s books are true stories, non-fiction based on her own family.
