Larry began writing his first novel without thinking about things like writing style and genre. “I had a story in mind, and I just began to write.” In less than a year, the long-distance collaboration of a Kentucky author and his California mentor resulted in Dancing Alone Without Music, and the sequel, Follow Your Dreams, one year later. “The more I wrote,” Larry says, “the more my style evolved – short, fast-paced chapters with page-turning endings, and hopefully engaging dialogue between believable and memorable characters.”
Larry’s third book, The Girl on the Bench, is slated for publication in January 2020, with two more books scheduled for release in 2020. In terms of genre, Larry says his focus is Christian and Inspirational, yet striving to appeal to a broader secular audience. He writes with women readers in mind, but has developed a devoted following of male readers, as well. In addition to his writing, Larry is active in church, community and university activities.
Larry is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers, the Alliance of Independent Authors (Alli), The Authors Guild, the National Writers Union, and is a contributor to Southern Writers magazine Suite T blog.A Southerner born in Tennessee and raised in Virginia and Kentucky, Larry knew from a very young age he wanted to be a published author. He saved many of his creative writing efforts from both high school and university years, and continually wrote story ideas and character descriptions in journals for decades.
