Leonard D. Hilley II is a native of Ohio. Born in Middletown in 1966, his family moved to Alabama when he was six months old. At the age of three he was reading books. By age eleven he wrote his first novel.
Leonard spent most of his youth exploring the bluffs, meadows, and woods in the Pleasant Hill community near Fort Payne, Alabama. When he was ten years old, he viewed Dr. McKabe's insect collection and immediately his love for biology was birthed. He collected and reared butterflies and moths for many years.
Leonard currently lives in the mountains of Kentucky with his wife and two children where he is busily working on more novels, a screenplay, and a children's picture book.
