Author Leonard Treman
What has he written?
It all started when I went to a website called fanstory.com in 2009. I was in college and I wanted to start writing fiction. It took me about a year to get my first piece published with a blog called the platinum page. In October 2010. The published story was called, "A Pastors Story". It was about a little kid who's false claims of molestation imprisoned a pastor in a Christmas carol parody.
My next piece of writing happened in July 2011, I won 2nd place in a competition with my short story, "Grand Theft Auto and Soup." It was a part of the book Regrets and other short stories, it's available here, " http://www.amazon.com/Regrets-Other-Stories-Phyllis-Thomas/dp/0615523765".
I won 3rd place in the same competition in august 2011. My story, "Teachers With Benefits," graced the pages of Resonance and other short stories. That's available here, " http://www.amazon.com/Resonance-Other-Short-Stories-Parducci/dp/0615540147."
In September 2011, I won 4th place in the same competition. I was beginning to notice a pattern here and chose not to reenter. My work the Necropediologist, slipped into Far Cursed Shores and other short stories, that's available here: http://www.amazon.com/Cursed-Shores-Other-Short-Stories/dp/0615552528.
I focused on school for awhile, then in June 2012 a small blog picked up my story, "Red-neck Gas Station," and in September 2012 took on my story, "Lobster Love." This blog is free, it's called linguistic erosion and can be found here: "http://www.linguisticerosion.com/search/label/Leonard%20Treman".
In November 2012, The Larks Fiction magazine picked up my story, "A Battle Of Wits and Tenure," which was about a professor mentally fighting with his brilliant student. That can be found here: "http://larksfictionmagazine.blogspot.com/2012/11/issue-twenty-volume-four.html"
In December 2012, Clever Magazine took on my work, "Red Versus White. A story that makes another huge story out of a short seemingly innocent car ride. That can be found here, " http://clevermag.com/fiction/red.htm".
In February of 2013 Young adult magazine commissioned me to write a story to mirror some irresponsible celebrity stunts and promote responsibility. You can find my story, The Old Brown Fuzzy Bear here, "http://www.youngadultmag.com/Browse/Article/2426/The-Old-Brown-Fuzzy-Bear".
In April 2013, I was published with Surreal Grotesque, a small blog. They decided that my story, "The Best High School Prank of 2063," was good enough to publish. You can find that here, " http://www.surrealgrotesque.com/new-stories.html".
In August 2013, my story, "The Blood contract was picked up by Salem Cemetery", which is a publication by Inwood Indiana Press. They have it for sale here, " http://www.amazon.com/Salem-Cemetery-Inwood-Indiana-Press/dp/0615871925/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377356050&sr=8-1&keywords=salem+cemetery".
