Doctor Lawrence A. Wood is a 26 year veteran of the United States Navy. He retired at the rank of Captain and has been in the business of caring and compassion for more than thirty years, as a Physical Therapist, Ophthalmologist, and Writer.
He is the author of numerous poems, screenplays and short stories. His stage play, No Marks Just Memories, performed to sold-out audiences in Japan.
In writing Among Pigeons, Doctor Wood, remembers his childhood treatment of a neighborhood homeless man, dubbed John-the-Bum. He recalls: "We treated him with contempt and hatred and I never looked him in the eye to see his equality with me. I never looked beyond his dirty face or smell to see his heart. I deliberately made every effort to remain far enough as to not touch him. It is clear that decades later, it was he who touched me."
Doctor Wood believes Among Pigeons, will right a wrong, raise awareness about the homeless and lift humanity.
Doctor Wood lives with his wife and youngest son in San Marcos, California.
