A 74-year-old Soham-born author has released more than 300 pages of poetry as part of his first anthology collection.
Tony Leonard, who also has 15 plays to his name, has put together seven sections of poetry all about the supernatural and spiritual history of Great Britain.
The collection – called Ancient Voices Ever Singing – includes more than 150 poems, exploring the dark practices of Paganism to the enlightenment following the introduction of Christianity.
“I’ve been doing it for years and my imagination is constantly creating,” said Tony, who is also part of a poetry and folk music club.
“The poems take you back.”
