Lea Hensley

bw close grayOne of three founders of AudioGals, Lea has now retired from the every day excitement of running AudioGals! You can still find her chiming in for “Currently Playing” from time to time, but she is now expressing her joy in art and grandchildren.

Lea was the author of Speaking of Audiobooks column for All About Romance for six years. She still has an abiding love for audiobooks which started as a means to just get through an exercise regime and increased when experiencing light sensitivity. Now she prefers listening over reading in print although she spends time with both. Lea loves perennial gardening, natural environments, creating mixed media art, and writing.

Lea’s favorite romance sub-genres are Contemporary, Historical, and Romantic Suspense. She can’t list just a few of her favorite audiobooks. The list is long but here are her top 25:
