http://lpobryan.wordpress.com/ Laurence O'Bryan was first published by a school newspaper when he was ten. He studied English and history in Dublin and IT at Oxford University. He spent ten years working with major International banks and firms servicing them in the City of London and was fired for telling his boss. “What part of NO do you not understand.” He wasn’t even allowed to clear his desk and still misses his yellow plastic pencil sharpener.
In 2007, he won the Outstanding Novel at the Southern California writer’s conference and is a member of the Irish Writing Centre, and “live” writing groups in Dublin. His research has taken him all over the world from San Francisco to the smallest Turkish Islands. He likes looking at the stars and listening to the stories of strangers.
