Ray Lawrence

I am a retired Chartered Secretary, born and educated in London and Essex and now living with my wife, Kath, in Sheffield. I worked for most of my business life for a German Multi-National Engineering Group with its offices in London and retired early to take up my passion for writing.
I am now best known for my plays, sketches, and comic verse and monologues which I publish through Lazybeescripts.com. I have travelled widely, on business and privately.
