Born in Winnipeg and raised on the prairies, Lawrence's first passion was sports, especially baseball and then hockey. In the private hours it was reading, from Treasure Island to biographies on Leonardo da Vinci. This passion for reading eventually helped him endure his trials at various universities - four of them across Canada - culminating in a psychology degree and then an MBA in strategic planning from McGill. He began his career at Reader's Digest, but soon returned to the prairies to run a few gardening catalogs, where among other duties he wrote about tulips, sub-zero roses, and Elephant Ears.
In his debut novel, Dawn at Last, readers delight in the storytelling . . . the tragedies and triumphs, and the timeless aspects of love. However, it's the characters that make it both memorable and real. Smart, sexy, mysterious and refreshing. That's how others see his writing.
He has also been called a troublemaker, though he claims this is without intent.
