About The Author Lawrence A. ( Larry ) Cenotto V is a Seattle area world traveler, with visits to over 50 countries. He is a former All-American Quarterback. Also a sales rep, Civil War buff, history junkie, freelance writer, raconteur, plus wine and seafood aficionado. This particularly applies to paella. Chilean sea bass in turn trumps the paella. In his free time the author plays goalie for an island recreational soccer team, samples red wine ( quality control tester), attends movie screenings and theatre offerings religiously, and golfs badly. He is also a color commentator for local high school sports on TV. He has authored a screenplay entitled Gettysburg and invented a mountain climbing board game called Conquer Everest! When not writing or quaffing fermented grapes he spends much of his waking hours reading how to books, personal improvement narratives, leadership biographies, and history. True North is his first full-length book. Though our writer claims he originally penned Great Expectations and lost it to Charles Dickens in a past-life card shark double or nothing shakedown. Then The Sun Also Rises to Hemingway in a drinking duel. The author can be reached at: email@example.com.
