She is also the founder of the book development agency The Book Engineer. She lives in Austin, but travels all over the world to talk about books and publishing.


"Written as a series of notably short chapters, the names of which provide a fair amount of punch on their own ("Sophistry in Spanish class")....["Mostly Good Girls" is] overall an enjoyable, light read."

"Private-school culture functions only as a backdrop here; Sales focuses her debut ["Mostly Good Girls"] on the dynamics between Violet and Katie, and the friendship story is refreshingly free of confrontational cliques and catty female stereotypes, while short, snappy chapters keep the story moving.... Recommend this to fans of Meg Cabot's novels and academy-based stories." --"Booklist"
"Sales conveys the dynamics of the girls' friendship with honesty and a light touch." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Brilliant, poignant, and straight-up hilarious. Leila Sales is a fresh and fabulous new voice in YA."

--Lauren Oliver, bestselling author of "Before I Fall"
*"Witty and unpretentious, Violet is a likable narrator. Suggest this one to readers who enjoy the writing style of Ally Carter. A strong debut that is not be missed."""
