Brett Lawrence, a graduate of Central Washington University, published the novel Shadow Guardians and will hold a book signing at the University Place Library in Pierce County at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 6.
Lawrence earned his bachelor’s degree in law and justice in 1979 at CWU-Pierce College (then it was called Fort Steilacoom Community College). He lives in Lakewood and works for the state Department of Social and Health Services in the Center for Forensic Services at Western State Hospital. Lawrence hopes Shadow Guardians is the start of a long, productive writing career he plans to pursue after he retires from the state.
The book, by Martin Sisters Publishing, is a present-day science fiction story. The setting begins in the Tacoma and Puget Sound area before taking readers into the depths of space with an alien race. While Lawrence wrote the story more than 20 years ago, it wasn’t published and released until August 2013.
Shadow Guardians will be available for purchase and signing at Thursday’s free library event. The book, in hardcopy and electronic versions, also is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other stores.
