J.R. Leckman

Biography

I live in Colorado with a beautiful wife and lots of pets. I currently go to school for physics, but writing is my number 1 passion.

Growing up, I used to think of books as windows that allowed me to peek into other worlds. In kindergarten, I cut my teeth on the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. Terry Brooks was waiting for me in 4th grade, and I have travelled many places since. I hope you enjoy the trip to the worlds of my creation, and am always excited to hear about your journey there.
