Daniel Leonard – Illinois, USA

My name is Daniel Leonard. Daniel lives in Chicago, IL with his beautiful wife and two lovely children. He enjoy reading and writing poetry. His go-to pastime usually involves an independent bookstore and a coffee in hand, or a hike in the woods with his family. He loves each season and uncovering the beauty they conceal. He loves language, words, syntax, and the power they have. A college professor once said, “show, don’t tell”. Every word, structure, and punctuation has its purpose. “I love when they surprise me.”
