Richard Lawrence comes to the writing table with a different background than many authors. He grew up in a military family, which meant he moved a lot. To pass the time, he would make up stories in his head. He found it enjoyable and relaxing.

As a child, he spent six years in Germany and three in Hawaii, plus lived in nine different states on the mainland, most of them along the east coast. By the time he was seventeen, he’d lived in seventeen different places.

After leaving home he joined the Army and spent three more years in Germany, working as a technician. Once his enlistment was up, he went to the University of Colorado where he studied Electrical Engineering and met the woman of his dreams. It was during this time that he gave his life to Christ. After twenty years working for HP, in the high-tech world of integrated circuits, he left the engineering field for new opportunities.

He now lives in northern Colorado with his wife, Debbie, who works as his sounding board and 1steditor. He and Debbie both have backgrounds in electrical engineering and together have written 12 award winning science books. In 2006, Answers in Geneses started publishing their science books, (Gods Design for Science).  

After publishing these science books, Richard decided to try his hand at fiction. His first novel, Fatal Transaction, was published in 2013, by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas and his second novel, Deadly Infiltration, was published in 2016 by Boarding House Publishing. These high-tech novels are filled with distrust, deceit, murder, treachery, faith, love and at times, the ultimate sacrifice.

When not writing, Richard likes playing street hockey, hiking, and traveling. He has visited all 50 states and several countries. He also loves spending time with his kids and grandkids.
