In this award-winning psychological drama about finding self in a dysfunctional family, Secrets In The Mirror grapples with the imperative to save others versus the struggle to save oneself. Gavin tries to salvage his self-esteem from Dad's bullying and from narcissistic abuse by his identical mirror twin, while Mom resists spousal abuse to assert sanity into the clan. But when Devon gets into drugs and trouble with the Mob, people die. Gavin flees far away to protect himself and his new family, but he can't escape his sociopathic brother, or the Mob. Yet inextricable bonds tie him to Devon, and Gavin vows to rescue his twin from his self-destructive path. But he is warned: You can't save anyone until you save yourself.
Leslie Kain writes dark psychological fiction about messed-up people whose greatest barriers to happiness lie within them.
Her debut novel 'Secrets In The Mirror' has won first place & finalist awards from Independent Press, Literary Titan, BookFest, Firebird, Outstanding Creator, Book Excellence, Chanticleer Somerset, American Writing Awards, etc.
Leslie was always writing something as a kid – fantasies, poems, essays, plays, secret plans. But in her careers (psychology, Government Intelligence, nonprofits), her writing was limited to nonfiction: professional, technical, research. Finally dabbling in fiction during spare moments, her short stories found their way into literary journals and anthologies. She developed personal relationships with her characters, who relentlessly nagged her into longer stories. Her second novel, ‘Secrets In The Mirror’ is the first to be published and she's currently working on its sequel. She leverages her education, training and experience in psychology to write dark stories about flawed people whose greatest barriers to happiness lie within them. She earned degrees in psychology from Wellesley College and MBA from Boston University. Originally from “all over” the U.S. (although a piece of her heart remains in Boston), she now resides in Mexico with her husband and 16-year-old cat Sheba.
