Ewan Alexander Lawrie


I used to do something secret in the Military. Now I write, so I'm still making things up. There are bits and pieces of mine in various anthologies. I won a prize once for a poem a while ago. There is a finished novel that no-one wants. Hmm... nothing special here then.

I have some short stories, a little imagination and enough talent to put under your little fingernail.

'Not everyone's cup of tea.'
I think I'll have that on my headstone.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on Air Force bases and attended a boarding school in Northumberland. My writing has often touched on questioning what -and where- home is and how this affects identity. My first novel Gibbous House addresses both of these themes.
When did you first start writing?
Like most people I wrote far too many angst-ridden pieces in my teens. When I turned 40 I picked up a pen and wrote scatalogical nonsense to while away long operational flights over sundry conflicts. I didn't really start writing until I did the Open University creative writing diploma in 2005.
