John Leggett

Like the kids in The Five-Cent Gang, Leggett grew up in upstate New York during the 1950s. In 1980, he moved to Aroostook County, Maine, with his wife and two daughters. After more than thirty northern Maine winters, he moved to Falmouth. John has authored numerous short stories that have been published in periodicals, literary journals, and serialized in a Maine newspaper.

The Five-Cent Gang, a coming of age story, is his debut novel.
