As a child R Lawson developed a love of travel and an appreciation for the outdoors. He inherited his curiosity for and a love of the Old West from his grandfather, who was raised next to the Oregon Trail in Kansas and would speak of wagon trains rumbling by his home, and from his grandmother who grew up in a sod house near Indian Country and described hiding on a nearby hill when bands of Indians approached. His own father grew up in Coffeyville, Kansas, where the Dalton gang failed famously in their attempt to rob two banks at the same time.
R Lawson continued to quench his ongoing thirst for adventure whenever possible. He has climbed 5000 and 6000 meter peaks in five countries. A marathoner, he qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon. He has paddled the Dead River in Maine at flood, sky dived, and kayaked much of the New England Coast from Connecticut to Maine.
R Lawson's sense of adventure, along with his curiosity, love of history, and his "desire to see what most people never see" is evident in the pages of his books. He transports the reader to places that truly exist, places where he has been, and landscapes that readers may find and experience for themselves. He now lives on the Central Coast of California and continues his adventures as his writing allows.
