There’s nothing better in this world than spending time with family.
Then it’s off to karate where he trains and teaches as a 2nd Degree Black Belt along with his family at the American Karate Academy.
Lenny has been writing for 20 years with his first published work released as a graphic novel titled, Haven.

He also enjoys meeting with local high schoolers about their passion for creativity and reading for elementary aged kids.

Poochie Mars is the mysterious graphic artist who only comes out at night to work on designing cover art or logos under a cover of darkness. No one has actually seen him but on occasion, when the sun rises in the east you can see his shadow race past the author’s office door.
In his wake, there can often be found a trail of apple fritter crumbs.
This is the only known image of PoochieMars.
His favorite coffee is barista boy and bongo baby. It took a while to figure that out.
