Recent release “Amature of Prose" from Page Publishing author David Leonard explores how the author was the youngest of seven, but he never really considered himself as part of the family, as it was more like a group home. It was very wild times growing up in the sixties—yes, he does actually remember them.

David Leonard has completed his new book “Amature of Prose": an intriguing poetry collection, inspired by the author's countless friends and family members who encouraged him to compile them.

Leonard writes, "I wrote my first poem in the fourth grade. My teacher gave us an assignment just before Christmas break. Write an essay on something to do with the season. I wrote a poem entitled Snow. It took all of ten minutes. She had me stay after class and asked me straight out if I had actually written it or if it was from someone else’s work. By the time we got back from vacation, she and the music teacher had made it into a song. What’s more, they had the class sing it to the entire school! I was not amused. Over the years I would occasionally jot down some ideas for poems, but I never really considered it much more than just a hobby—like doodling. It’s been over the past five years or so that I’ve been going after it whole-hog. The floodgates opened, my pen would not stop writing no matter how much I tried."

Published by Page Publishing, David Leonard's irreverent work is influenced by having grown up in the mid-west in a large family.

David Leonard has had a storied life, that has taken him from Ohio to Arizona, and has brought many different people into his life. He has always had a gift for writing poetry from a young age and created this book in hopes that others may relate to it. He gathered his own experiences and those of people close to him to create a poetry collection that has overarching familiarity to many.

Readers who wish to experience this emotional work can purchase “Amature of Prose" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
