M.A. Lawson

M.A. Lawson

Pseudonym for Mike Lawson.

Mike Lawson was raised in Pueblo, Colorado with a passel of brothers and one sister, he then attended college at Seattle University and got a degree in engineering. After college, he went to work for the U.S. Navy as a nuclear engineer and spent about thirty years working for the Navy’s nuclear power program. Mike spent some time in Washington D.C., but most of his career was at a large naval shipyard in Bremerton, Washington. At the shipyard he managed a number of different organizations related to overhauling nuclear powered submarines, cruisers, and aircraft carriers. Mike ended his career as a member of the government’s Senior Executive Service and as the top civilian at the shipyard responsible for navy reactor plant work on the West Coast.

So how’d he go from nuclear engineering to writing? The short answer is he likes to write, it’s fun for him, so he tried his hand at it. Mike tells people that if you want to be a writer you need some talent, a lot of persistence, and a whole lot of luck. In 2004, Mike got very lucky: a fantastic agent liked The Inside Ring and got him a two-book deal with a publisher. By the end of 2014, he will have published ten novels, nine in his DeMarco series, and a new book called Rosarito Beach. After that, who knows?

Regarding his personal life, let’s just leave it at: he's married, lives in the Pacific Northwest, and when he's not writing he mostly plays golf and just goof around.
