About Me

Lawrence-5Photo by Clarissa Salman

Lawrence Silveira. A human originally from a California town called “Lard” who now lives in Los Angeles, a city whose name has nothing to do with food. I like goats, the color orange, and writing things.


Lawrence received a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia College Chicago with a major in Fiction Writing and a minor in Writing for Television. His prose work has been featured online in The Lab Review and Habitat Magazine, and in print in the fortieth edition of Columbia’s award-winning anthology, Hair Trigger.

In addition to his short stories, Lawrence is currently hard at work on his second novel. His first novel, Darkblade and the Secret Shadow, was self-published back when he was in high school and really just wanted to be able to say that he had a book published by the time he graduated. Lawrence also recently helped create an as-told-to memoir called My Mission to Walk: A Journey of Sight, Step, and Strength with Tonya Rabb, the founder of Tonya’s Mission to Walk.

If you’re in need of a talented writer with his own unique sense of humor or an editor with an acute eye for detail, feel free to reach out! Lawrence is always looking to expand his portfolio, build his resume, and collaborate.
