Lawrence Grodecki


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.

Smashwords Interview

Is it true that you write naked?
Now why does this question remind me of Marilyn Monroe? There was all those reporters asking her is she has anything on when she goes to sleep. She once gave me this fantastic response, "Did I have something on? Of course I did, I had the radio on!"

My writing doesn't punch the clock, except perhaps when I'm writing about something timeless. I haven't worn a watch in over a decade. I'm not always writing, but when I do it can be noon as easily as the middle of the night. When I actually sit down and type is another story. My mind is very active - sometimes too busy - I get lost in my thoughts. When that happens I may just as well be naked. But then, even with our clothes on, aren't we all pretty much that way?
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I have a strong need for finding a creative outlet. It really is a passion and a very satisfying one. I'm an artist as well. While I've always felt that I would do a little writing some day, there were times that I didn't think the joy of creating art could be found in writing. I'm so glad to find out that I was wrong! It seems storytelling is a bit of a gift for me, and moving people, making them happy, giving them something to think about . . . this process is one of my great joys in living.
