Christy Leskovar was born in Butte, Montana, and grew up in Kennewick, Washington. She graduated from Seattle University with degrees in mechanical engineering and French and then joined Bechtel in Gaithersburg, Maryland. After stints in Kansas, Barcelona, and San Francisco, she transferred to an assignment in Las Vegas. It was during a visit to her hometown that she learned the shocking news about her great-grandmother being arrested for murder. She then left her engineering career to find out what happened and write a book about it. The true story of what she found out, One Night in a Bad Inn, was a 2007 High Plains Book Award finalist. Finding the Bad Inn chronicles the detective hunt behind how she found the story.
