Gregory J. Lavelle is a
professional playwright, screenwriter, director and actor. Lavelle has written in practically
every genre from science fiction to mysteries to court room dramas. In his spare time, Lavelle is an
attorney admitted to the Supreme Court of the United States, a labor
arbitrator, and a professor of Management who still finds
time to ride his bicycle and play softball with his fellow geezers in the Grey
Eagles League. Lavelle graduated magna
cum laude from Kent State University with a BBA and earned his Juris
Doctor at Case Western Reserve University.
Lavelle lives in North Olmsted, Ohio with the love of his
life, Elizabeth Earley-Lavelle and has three good, brilliant and talented
children; Matthew Lavelle, a financial advisor in North Canton, Ohio, Sera
Lavelle Hoedholt, a psychologist in Brooklyn, New York and Leah Rietveld who
works in the educational field in Chicago, Illinois. Lavelle has two grandchildren; Sydney, a budding equestrian,
and Andrew, a future soccer star.
Lavelle is a Christian, like the Simpsons, a Presby-Lutheran, and served
as President of the Trustees of the Maple Heights Presbyterian Church for
thirty years. Lavelle draws upon
his Christian faith to create compelling comedies and dramas with strong moral
lessons and his legal background to create tense legal dramas. Lavelle credits his tenuous grasp on
reality for his works of science fiction.
