About LeonAWalker

Biography

Leon A. Walker has appreciated books all of his life, both as a form of enjoyment and also as a collector. No doubt some of this was instilled by his father, who possessed a deep appreciation for literature and who from the author’s earliest memories, read and regularly quoted everything from Chaucer and Kipling to Hughes and Baldwin to him and his siblings. He found himself reading and writing for entertainment purposes from a very young age. Later he began to dabble in poetry and he continued to write creatively on and off for years but he never shared any of those works. Many were not preserved and are now lost. He traveled extensively before the advent of wireless email and cellular phones, and it was his mother who frequently commented on the creative and unusually descriptive nature of his letters. Over a long and varied professional career, he was also compelled to write a great deal on a broad cross-section of topics. What very few actually knew, was that he tremendously enjoyed writing. Nor did they know of the passion he felt when creating written works. It should be no surprise then that he had intended to write a book for many years. Work Wonders and Life Lines simply presented the first publishing opportunities because he had so much completed material on hand. His next project—the book he had initially planned—entitled Tarkington Road, will be more traditionally autobiographical. He expects to make it available in early in 2011.

Leon A. Walker writes various forms of creative literature as well as social and political commentary and he collaborates with artists and photographers worldwide on a variety of artistic images. He has worked as a public and private sector business professional and he is a retired United States Naval Officer. He is a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, and he is a native of Cleveland, Ohio.

Amanda I absolutely love the fact that life will sometimes provide small offerings that are both unexpected and immensely satisfying. Little things, that initially seem to just make your day, but which you later discover have been etched in the positive aspect of your psyche, forever. It has happened to me many times. And each time, there remains a lesson, an appreciation which...
