Author L.A. Banks is ‘gravely ill’


Sadly, we need to share the news that popular vampire author — and all-around awesome woman — Leslie Esdaile/L.A. Banks has been diagnosed with late-stage adrenal cancer. Her friend Tina Wise shared this with us via Facebook:

It is with profound sadness that we have to inform you that our beloved sister and friend, Leslie Esdaile, (“L.A. Banks”) is most gravely ill. She is facing an uphill battle in her struggle with serious illness.  Please know that as Leslie needs all of her energy in this fight, she is absolutely not able to receive visitors, answer emails, texts or phone calls, or receive flowers. What she is able to receive is your continued prayers.

Also, Leslie’s medical expenses are mounting at an astronomical rate. If you wish to assist Leslie, a fund has been established to help with these ever increasing expenses.  If you wish to send donations (please note that donations are not tax-deductible) to help Leslie, please see the information listed below:
