When I was a child at just 5 years of age my mother and father divorced who were quite young themselves, I don’t remember the ordeal but I do remember not long after mum remarrying to a man who was violent towards her on a regular basis. Not long after they too were divorced and after he set a bon fire and burnt everything including pretty much all my baby and child photos (I have only half a dozen now) we moved to a woman’s refuge to go into hiding. I was now the man of the house at just 8 and the eldest of 4.
Around that time is a bit of a blur for me I’m guessing for obvious reasons but after a bunch of physical ordeals and dramas we moved to a suburb called Lockridge, Which at the time was the roughe ... read more

Laurie Vincent is my pen name. I live in the Midwest and love a juicy story with interesting characters, spiced up with sex, some suspense and of course, humor. I have balanced a career in the financial industry with writing (which has always been a fun side-line). Pieces of the people I write about come from those I've known. I am always jotting ideas down in composition notebooks that I eventually transfer to my laptop. I love all kinds of movies -- from the classics to even the trashy (but enjoyable) ones! I appreciate getting feedback from people who have read my stories - I truly believe it makes me a better writer to take their comments to heart. I hope to hear from you soon!

It was almost ten years ago when my alcoholism was beginning to near its worst that a friend said I needed to write a novel about what was happening to me, as it was unique amongst the small circle of foreigners we lived amongst. He was a colleague of mine who lived next door teaching also in China, and after every momentous (and disastrous) weekend I would have a story to tell him, which he said should be fashioned into the chronicles of Richard's crazy weekends. A year later I did begin to write, going back to the start of my time in China, and dealing primarily with my affliction, alcoholism. So, the account was begun when my drinking was at its worst, and contains a completely honest and living version of m ... read more

As of now (August of 2014) I have been writing erotica for about six years. The fact that all of this has been as a ghostwriter has shown me a lot about the business but I ultimately found it unfulfilling. It was hard to put great ideas down on paper and not get the feedback (good and bad) that I crave on my work.
I realized that not only could I really not improve my talent as a result but that I wanted to hear about how my stories made my audience feel.
So for a few months I gave up my client list- more out of frustration than anything. I was truly going to stop writing.
Then I found I couldn't get these ideas out of my head. I kept thinking, "Wow, that would be a great starting point for a story." Fi ... read more

I fled as soon as I could by going to UC-Berkeley, and ended up graduating with a degree in Japanese with a few years of molecular cell biology on the side. Fleeing even further, my travels took me to Tokyo, where I discovered the best sushi and the worst weather. The wind has now blown me to Seattle, where I can be found running down Pike St. yelling, “Go Seahawks!” at the top of my lungs, in turn scaring small animals and children.
