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 Navyâ€™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 governmentâ€™s Senior Executive Service and as the top civilian at the shipyard responsible for navy reactor plant work on the West Coast.
So howâ€™d he go from nuclear engineering to writing? The short answer is he likes to write, itâ€™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, letâ€™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.
