Lawrence Diehl Brown is a novelist, adventurer, astronomer, and performer on the Medieval lute. He attended The Ohio State University where he received a B.A. in English Literature with an emphasis in creative writing. His studies included Honors history, early music and astronomy.

After finishing school, he lived for a short time in Istanbul, Turkey where he explored ancient ruins and developed an interest in the astronomy of ancient civilizations. He has since traveled widely and explored ruins in Central America as well. More recently, he earned his certification for scuba diving to extend his exploration under the seas. He builds and uses his own telescopes. He is an avid writer and contributor to scientific journals. This is his first novel. Look for it on Amazon in January of 2012 as an eBook and a first edition large-size softcover.
