ABOUT THE AUTHOR
L.S. Lawrence was born in London in 1953 and emigrated to Australia in 1977, having gained a degree in History from University College . He taught in Australian secondary schools and in two universities for many years, obtaining a master's degree in the process. He is now semi-retired and has returned to his first love, historical fiction set in the ancient world.
Escape by Sea is his second novel, after Eagle of the East (Omnibus Books, 2007). Lawrence has a passionate interest in history, and his fiction is based on the bones of real stories. Detailed, descriptive, poetic, filled with action, his books transport his readers into another world and another place, an ancient world peopled with strong and charismatic characters.
