Jeff Leitch is the co-author of the book, Saving our Pennys, which he co-wrote with his great friend Roy Dimond. Jeff lives with his family in Maple Ridge, a proud community at the base of the majestic Golden Ears Mountain in British Columbia, Canada.
A teacher in his native Coquitlam, British Columbia, Jeff’s passions include cheering and coaching those who display courage and dare to chase greatness.
I never met Jeff and what impressed me the most it was when I have seen a video with Jeff and Roy presenting their book,Saving Our Pennys.Jeff radiates joy of life and happiness, without saying anything; the smile and his eyes express such a inner peace and optimism,is incredible.
Looking at the video I could see the strong relationship between the two authors:Roy watching Jeff with a kind of paternal affection, Jeff being happy to be with his friend and both of them proud of their achievement, this magnificent book,Saving Our Pennys.I will not go on about the book again, here on my blog are many articles about it, I want to tell you something which you don’t know about Jeff Leitch.
He has had an article, that has inspired and touched many, written about him in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Children with Special Needs series called, “Toss of a Coin”, by Ted Kuntz, the author of an inspiring book Peace Begins with Me.The story made me appreciate Jeff and what is he doing even more, and feel sorry that he is a person who I never met and I never will.
Along with writing articles for local papers, Jeff’s current restlessness has him dreaming of many more novels and recently he changed his writer’ hat with a marketer one, and I have to say he is doing this very well.Here is the proof.
Well done Jeff Leitch and I can’t wait to see what are you coming with next time. Want to know more about Jeff?Visit his blog http://jeffleitch.wordpress.com
