I’m Gary Lawrence. I grew up in Rockford IL after being born in France to an Air Force dad. I attended Rockford public schools and Rockford College (small liberal arts school). In addition to a BA in English, I got a secondary teaching certificate there that I never used. Instead I worked almost 30 years for the local aerospace company before retiring early and earning an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts. In 2009, my wife Linda and I moved to Phoenix, where I now teach English for Glendale Community College.
