Who am I? Chris Lawrence, Born 1964. I live in West Kirby, a peaceful town by the sea, with my Muse Karen and children Ben, Alex and Elisabeth, with an older child, Charmaine, making her own way in the world. But before we get ahead of ourselves, this writer was a reader first. Imagine a child lying in a patch of sunlight reading ‘Robinson Crusoe’ and ‘ Black Arrow.’ Travelling into adventures inside his mind. After reading other peoples adventures the child starts to try out his own imagination, writing short story adventures similar to those he had previously read. Carrying this on into school, English Language became one of his favorite subjects, right through to College and after. A defining moment came with the discovery of books by European and Latin American authors Cortazar, Zola, Moravia, Kafka and the Americans John Dos Passos, Theodore Dreiser and later 20th Century writers and poets Brautigan and Bukowski. As a result that writing expanded but was closeted away until my Muse persuaded me to submit some of that now harnessed imagination and with work published in Troubador 21, Amphibi.us, Calloused hands, Deuce Coupe, Zygote in my Coffee, Red Fez and many more, i have not looked back since.
