About Hunter Leonard
Hello. My name is Hunter Leonard and I'm an author, writer, speaker and business owner based in Australia. I was born in Canberra - our nations capital - and spent most of my early life in Sydney - attending school in Baulkham Hills and then studied science at Macquarie University. I have worked in sales and marketing for over thirty years, building two successful businesses in marketing and business strategy.
I love the creative process of writing - whether it is for fun or for business. I've written songs, poems, short stories, children's stories, business books, a novel and hundreds of blog articles. One of my short stories was animated in the Jaffas Down the Aisle Film Festival and I've won several competitions for creative writing. I've also written award winning radio and marketing campaigns.
I write every day using the mantra that a writer writes. My writing could be a short social post, a poem, an article or a marketing plan.
