“Lawson Found,” a novel by NH author Roger Wood.

Veteran reporter and producer of radio, television, print and Internet news,  Roger Wood,  has just published his first novel, “Lawson Found.”

Derek Lawson, a young adult in the turmoil of the mid 1960s, finds himself at a crossroads in his life, torn between his unfulfilled love life  and his other passion, becoming a broadcaster.

“I must admit to the similarities between the main character’s life and that of my own,” Wood says.  “Urged by other notable authors to write about what you know, I took their advice, and this novel is the result.”

Wood says that he hopes readers will find Derek’s experiences interesting and eventful, sometimes hilarious, at other times reflective.

The book is available on Amazon, which has added it to its downloadable e-books.
