The author has written a number of articles for the online publication American Thinker and was interviewed on the Dennis Miller radio show.
Divine Evolution is his first book. He has also written short stories for an anthology about animals and recently published his first detective novel, Coastal Empire, under the pen name of Rocky Leonard. John is the Atlanta Creationism Examiner for the online new source examiner.com.
John holds a BBA from the University of Georgia and worked as a computer programmer for more than twenty years before becoming a writer. His writing has also been influenced by shorter stints working as a bartender, real estate investor and landlord.
He has been married to wife Lisa for twenty-two years. John is the proud father of two and grandfather of three, as well as pack leader for several wonderful dogs and one crazy cat.
Born in Savannah, John has spent most of his adult life in the northern suburbs of Atlanta. The local color in his writing is equally authentic whether the setting is a Georgia beach, downtown Atlanta, or the Appalachian foothills in north Georgia.
When he tired of listening to the constant attacks on religion by prominent atheists in the media or academia, author John L. Leonard spent several years on a personal journey, investigating the scientific evidence that purportedly eliminated God from what he calls the Big Picture. This book is the product of that effort. 2013 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Award.
Have you ever tried to housebreak more than one puppy at a time, or a dog that lived his whole life outdoors? Have you ever had to convince yourself there is room for just one more? Have you ever met a cat that struck fear in a pack of dogs?
This expanded edition of Always a Next One is a true account of the great joys and occasional sorrow of fostering. 2013 Readers Favorite Gold medal award.
For as long as man has contemplated the origin of the universe and the life within it, the search for answers has led some to religion in pursuit of a Creator, and others believe that science, especially Darwinian natural selection has all the answers. Divine Evolution reconciles the creationism account found in Genesis with evolutionist theory.
