Ewan 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. Gibbous House was published by Unbound on January 12 2017. Ewan's first poetry collection "Last Night I Met John Adcock" was published in October 2018. Gibbous House's sequel No Good Deed is due for publication by Unbound in September 2020:- https://unbound.com/books/no-good-deed/

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.
