Waubonsee Humanities Faculty Member Publishes Novel
Aaron Lawler, Humanities Instructor at Waubonsee Community College, recently published his debut novel, “The Marvelous Paracosm of Fitz Faraday and the Shapers of the ID” through independent publishing house Black Rose Publishing.
A sci-fi/fantasy novel, the story is described on the Black Rose website: “Fitz Faraday, his best friend Hollis, who comes from the wrong-side-of-the-tracks, and his hoped-to-be-girlfriend Josey, the new girl in town, are taken through harrowing events and thrilling misadventures, as they learn about life, love, death, the inner workings of the psyche, and the flimsiness of reality. After witnessing the murder of Professor Oliver Crowley, who has invented a way of bringing thoughts into physical reality, Fitz and his friends must exonerate the town bully, who is being framed for the murder.”
Lawler has been an educator for 15 years, teaching at the elementary, secondary and college level. He has been teaching at Waubonsee since 2012.
Lawler holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from North Central College. He earned a second master’s degree from Concordia University in curriculum and instruction with a focus on eLearning and technology. He is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in educational leadership at Concordia.
