John F Leonard


John was born in England and grew up in the industrial midlands, where he learned to love the sound of scrapyard dogs and the rattle and clank of passing trains.

He studied English, Art and History and has, at different times, been a sculptor, odd-job man and office worker. He enjoys horror and comedy (not necessarily together).

He has published three books, Bad Pennies, Collapse and 4 Hours, and is currently working on a number of projects which include more tales from the Scaeth Mythos, and new stories set in the ever evolving, post-apocalyptic world of Collapse.

Vincent likes nothing more than rootling round second-hand shops in search of the interesting and unusual. Items that are lost and forgotten. That’s all about to change. He’s about to find something that is perhaps better left unfound.

Smashwords book reviews by John F Leonard

    S.E. Casey has been on my radar for a while now and I picked this at random. I really enjoyed it. Can't stand spoilers so I won't go into great detail, but it draws you in gently and gets darker by the page. A witchy delight. Great stuff!
