Lawrence Hogue


My book, "All the Wild and Lonely Places: Journeys in a Desert Landscape," was published in 2000. Since then, I've taught writing at the University of San Diego and worked for the Desert Protective Council. I've recently turned my attention to fiction. I've got a fantasy fanfiction set in the Elder Scrolls/Skyrim universe, "The Song of Deirdre," on my website, on the FanFiction site, and on An Archive of Our Own, where it's available for download in ebook formats.

I'm shopping my new historical romance/suspense book, "Daring and Decorum: A Highwayman Novel," to agents and publishers. If that doesn't work out, I'll publish it through Smashwords.

Meanwhile, I plan to self-publish a collection of three stories, "Desert Trilogy," here on Smashwords.
