He has worked in a French factory and a West Virginia coal mine, and was a Peace Corps volunteer in Nepal. His play, Rose, was produced off Broadway last year. He lives in Palm Beach, Florida, and Washington, D.C., with his wife, Vesna Obradovic Leamer.

Review:

“If there is only one book about the Kennedys to read this must be it.” (Myer Feldman, Deputy Special Counsel to President Kennedy)

“Engaging and fast-moving...a stirring narrative.” (Publishers Weekly)

"Leamer is a great writer and storyteller . . . An honest account of a remarkable, perhaps unique, American political family." (Dr. Sheldon M. Stern, Historian, John F. Kennedy Library, 1977 to 1999)

"Leamer has . . . taken more chances than any other serious writer in the field. This is a breakthrough." (Burton Hersh, author of The EDUCATION OF EDWARD KENNEDY and THE SHADOW PRESIDENT)

"This book is full of extraordinary revelations . . . this is serious history written by a masterful storyteller." (Dan Moldea, author of THE KILLING OF ROBERT F. KENNEDY: An Investigation of Motive, Means, and Opportunity)

"The last word on America's greatest political dynasty. Draws the reader into the Kennedys as no book before." (Gus Russo, author of LIVE BY THE SWORD: The Secret War Against Castro and the Death of JFK)

"Vivid... Leamer's writing is impressive throughout...he sets up the themes that will be the motivation and ruination of Kennedy men." (Booklist)

“Leamer has a real gift for writing popular, accessible history...” (USA Today)

“Fascinating...Absorbing...With the dramatic and powerful style of a master storyteller.” (Boston Herald)

“Fast–paced...High heroic narrative...Leamer is well versed in the vast literature on the Kennedys...” (Washington Post)

“...One of the most valuable accounts of a family that vowed to help shape it’s country, then did.” (Newark Star-Ledger)

“Evenhanded...The writing is always tight and often graceful.” (Library Journal)

“Vivid...Leamer’s writing is impressive throughout...He sets up the themes that will be the motivation and ruination of Kennedy men. (Booklist)
