Bio: Lawrence Parlier was born in Georgetown, Ohio. Lawrence, fell in love with music

and literature at an early age and pursued his muse in both worlds. At 13, he started

playing guitar and spent his teen years honing his musical skills. By his early 20’s he was

singer and guitarist for the heavy metal band The Malevolent. The band, while having great

potential, fell by the wayside in the early 1990’s due to drugs and personal conflicts.

Burned out on the road and the superficial world of the music scene, Lawrence returned to

Ohio to raise his family and work at his writing, culminating in his debut novel Sierra

Court Blues. Lawrence resides in Bethel, Ohio with his wife Trina, and their 3 children.

Although, Lawrence has not returned to music full-time, in his spare time and when

requested to play on the local scene, he can still be seen jamming with his guitar at bars

and clubs in and around Ohio.

The novel is sure to be a page turner for metal music enthusiasts everywhere.

Praise for Sierra Court Blues

“Sierra Court Blues rises from page to mind with ferocity and swagger. Bo’s inner world is laid out, naked, before us and we

are pulled through it, stunned, by both its candor and its consequence.” — Lisa Brandstetter Holt —Author of Matters

“We’ve all had dreams of being a star, thought our first love would last forever and friends would always be by our

side…Sierra Court Blues is a heart wrenching journey seen through the eyes of a man struggling for truth inside chaos”

— Marie Ravenscraft—

“Fierce and moving, Sierra Court Blues is a gritty contemporary novel about letting go, moving on and growing up.”

—Australian Book Blogger Shelleyrae with Book’d Out—
