Hilary Leung was born in Hamilton, Ontario where he grew up throwing things, climbing stuff and drawing cartoons. Only one of these activities kept him out of trouble. In grade five, he wrote and illustrated his first picture book, Rover’s Adventure. It was epic, but remains unpublished.
He created his second picture book in art college entitled, "Orpheus & Eurydice". It too was pretty epic, but also remains unpublished.
"Third time's a charm!"
With the help of his good friend David Bruins together they created, "The Legend of Ninja Cowboy Bear". It took nine months to write, illustrate and self-publish 2000 copies. After quickly breaking sales of 1000 copies, David and Hilary were approached by Kids Can Press about licensing their book. Since then, they have also released, "The Way of the Ninja" and "The Call of the Cowboy".
They are currently developing an animated Ninja Cowboy Bear television series.
Hilary has also teamed up with his brothers (www.TheBrothersLeung.com) on "The Pirate Girl's Treasure An Origami Adventure".
Hilary is following his dream of illustrating children’s books and drawing for a living. He currently lives and works as a freelance graphic artist in the GTA.
