Award-winning author, teacher, and publisher Dr. Roger Leslie is a scholar in the fields of education and success, as well as motion pictures. A prolific writer of books that include inspirational self-help, teaching and librarianship, fiction, biography, and movie reference, Leslie is committed to inspiring people to live the life they dream.
A master of goal setting and achievement, Leslie travels the world sharing with groups of all ages his research on success and his techniques for using personal passion to create a life of purpose. His books on the topic, including Success Express for Teens and Teach Me SUCCESS, are core resources for educators at all levels, from elementary school through college, especially for character education and whole-child approaches to learning.
He shares empowering breakthroughs in My First Last Year, a Walden-like record of his personal experiment in living. His workshops on the topic have grown into a global movement where he teaches people to FLY® by living their own First Last Year.
An expert on movies (Film Stars & Their Awards, Countdown to Oscar®’s Favorite Actors), he has committed to memory enough movie facts to fill an encyclopedia. He uses that knowledge in his fun keynote speeches relating film awards to any group or interest.
When not on the road, Leslie lives in Houston where he writes, conducts workshops, teaches college, and runs Paradise Publishing LLC.
