LAWRENCE T. BURGIO – AUTHOR BIO
Having grown up in the Lower Hudson Valley, where he was raised on a steady diet of such tales as “Rip Van Winkle” and the “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” Lawrence T. Burgio is no stranger to both the dark and wondrous sides of storytelling. This early exposure to speculative fiction, combined with years of technical education, helped lead to the creation of The Colonel’s Vengeance and The Solar Savior series.
In addition to writing fiction, Lawrence is an avid guitar player and former member of the band Downstate, co-creating the album What It Is. Though novel writing calls to his heart, the blistering electric mayhem and soul shaking rhythms of heavy metal have never abandoned his soul.
Lawrence lives in Clarkstown, NY, with his wife and son, where he is employed as a design engineer manager for physical security systems. He is currently at work on the second volume of The Solar Savior series.
