About Lawrence Arthur Cenotto

Lawrence A. ("Larry") Cenotto V is a Seattle area world traveler, with visits to over 95 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 (particularly 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, history, and scouting information sources for his next epic journey. 'True North, Vol III' is his third 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 'War and Peace' to Leo Tolstoy in a blackmail scheme related to sinuous women at the Russian Imperial Court. And then 'The Sun Also Rises' to Ernest Hemingway in a 36-hour drinking duel.
