About W Lawrence

W. Lawrence
Author W. Lawrence


W Lawrence was born in San Francisco, California, and moved two dozen times before settling in Pennsylvania with his extraordinarily patient wife and two precocious daughters. He has finally balanced the delicate hormonal levels of his home buy getting a boy dog. He works in the world of corporate security as an investigator and professional interviewer/interrogator.


His first novel, Syncing Forward, was self published in 2014, and since garnered multiple awards. In 2015, Lawrence signed a deal with Podium Publishing who produced an audiobook of Syncing Forward. The narrator, the talented Will Damron, won Best Fiction Narrator at the esteemed SOVAS awards in 2016.

In 2017, Lawrence published two novelettes as part of a new series, Syncing In.  These novels follow Sergeant Agent Amara James, and while they can be read and enjoyed in complete independence from the original novel, they do complement Syncing Forward.

Future writing plans include finishing the Syncing In series, a twisty time travelling trilogy, a sequel to Syncing Forward, as well as other unrelated stories.

Lawrence is obsessed with zombie runs, comes home empty-handed from hunting turkeys, and loves non-fiction books about pirates. He loves good drama, everything from Downton Abbey to The Walking Dead. Currently he is binge watching Turn in between writing his new stories.
