Lawrence D. Elliott

Author's Bio

I wrote my first creative words in the sixth grade when my teacher gave me an assignment. I even made an attempt to create a rudimentary “book,” filled with “illustrations.” Actually, they were the most pathetic looking stick figures you’d ever see. Heading into junior high school, it was my reading development teacher who not only helped me improve my reading, but she also allowed me to cultivate my writing skills as she gently guided me to discover I was blessed with a great ability. I was hooked on writing ever since. Currently, I reside in Bensheim, Germany where I'm working on my first novel and outlining two more!
