An Illegal President: A Novel follows on the heels of the suspense thriller Jarred Into Being, published by these co-authors last year. Author 'Pat Lawrence' is actually husband and wife writing team of 'Pat' Adsit Burke and husband Daniel 'Lawrence' Burke - ergo: Pat Lawrence, pseudonym. They began their writing partnership in 2007 penning Murder Mysteries for their entertainment enterprise, "Murder By Design." Next, they graduated to a two-act comedy stage play, "Squirrels In The Attic," which is regularly performed in select Midwestern venues. They began their novel writing career in 2011. Pat and Daniel reside in Wisconsin where they dutifully serve as the staff to their two handsome English bulldogs, Diesel and Emmett. They describe the experience as Dogton Abbey, a canine version of Downton Abbey.
