DENVER. Dec. 28, 2017: After spending six years as an Army Infantryman, Lawrence Davis, returned to civilian life, adopted a Pitbull named Max to help cope with the transition, and began to write.

His unique writing style blends realism with the supernatural. “As I wrote I realized I wanted the influence to be a mix of all the science fiction books and comics that I obsessed over in my youth as well as the hardships that I endured in my adult life.”
Davis’s debut novel, BLUNT FORCE MAGIC, tells the story of Janzen Robinson, a man lost between two worlds. He’s faced with choosing between a normal, mundane life or going up against the greatest threat to come to our world in a century. Though the book draws from Davis’s personal journey, it doesn’t mirror it. “It was an attempt to tightrope between the impossible and have gutpunching moments of relatability. I wanted to have the characters who walk amongst the make believe to still be themselves believable.”
Today, Davis lives in Florida with his four rescue pitbulls and girlfriend. He is passionate about writing and rescue dogs, and continues to find healing from post-traumatic stress disorder.
