Lawrence A. Votee

Biography

Lawrence A. Votee is a veteran, freelance writer, and self-published author who resides in Niagara Falls, NY. Since he was a young boy, Lawrence was fascinated by the stories he read, in particular the worlds they took him to, and wanted one day to be able to fascinate others with his writing. He began writing poetry in his teens and dabbled in short stories for his own enjoyment. As the years passed and the responsibilities that often follow a misspent youth began to demand his attention, his writing fell to the wayside. It wasn't until after his time in the military that he began to write again and his drive to entertain readers, evolve as a writer, and stand head and shoulders above others in his chosen genre, is second to none.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Khalil Gibran, Arthur C. Clarke, Graham Hancock, Susan Ee, Steven Pressfield, Anne Rice, Neil Gaiman. I love all of these authors. Collectively, they combine what I find to be beautiful, not just in truth or history, but in the lives I see as well as those I create, and those I can only imagine. Each of these authors are responsible for waking something within me and what greater gift can you give someone.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually by searching genres and reading descriptions. If something sparks my interest, even minutely, I give it a shot. Also, once a month a choose something I wouldn't normally read, on the off chance that I might discover something more about myself. I also look to blogs that are specific to the genres I like as well as check out some recommendations by my Twitter followers, who are an amazing bunch.
