Leon Mare


About the author:-

Leon Mare was born in South Africa, and lived close to the Kruger National Park for most of his life. He was involved in extensive wildlife research, and spent all of his free time in the African wilderness. Dr. Mare has an intimate knowledge of the wilder side of Africa, which is reflected in most of his work. He has written several TV drama series, and produced a TV documentary on the indiscriminate killing of marlin during billfish competitions on the east coast of Africa. This resulted in a major paradigm shift to tagging and releasing these fish instead.

He has published seven books on Amazon Kindle, the latest being book five in the Sam Jenkins Trilogy series.

In 2013 Leon and his wife Monica returned to South Africa after ten years in the UK. They settled in the tiny village of Yzerfontein on the Cape West Coast, where he spends his days writing, fishing and bundu bashing with his best friend Mother Nature.

Smashwords book reviews by Leon Mare

  • Dead Meat on April 03, 2012

    A good read, in the sense that the action is continuous. No padding, and no boilerplating. The blood and gore, however, is a little over the top for my taste.
  • Smashwords Book Marketing Guide on April 09, 2012

    A true eye-opener and of immense value to someone who is a total novice in the field of digital publishing. Mark my words: Mark Coker will go down in the annals of history as the man who single-handedly changed the face of publishing forever.
  • Drake's Coffin on April 25, 2012

    A very good read. Excellent research, and lots of action. I hope we will see a lot more of Zach Colt in the near future.
