Lawrence Earle Johnson resides in Traverse City, Michigan, after retiring from long careers in criminal justice and higher education. Earning degrees in both Criminal Justice and Psychology, Johnson was a street cop, worked in intelligence and organized crime, and provided security for U.S. presidents and foreign heads of state. He has also been a highly-regarded college professor in both Michigan and Georgia. Passionate about science fiction novels from an early age, Johnson recently began a second career as a crime/thriller novelist. Johnson draws upon his education and wealth of professional experience to pen novels filled with conspiracy, political intrigue, and life-and-death situations.
In his novel, Death Sine, set in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, an investigative reporter and a clandestine agent work together to thwart a diabolical plan using extremely low frequency (ELF) waves to take over the world.
