|Author Info ||
|Born in Memphis, Tennessee, in the spring of 1970, Steven attended Southaven High School and received a B.A. in English from the University of Mississippi in 1993. He presently teaches English in Olive Branch. Science fiction, fantasy, and history have always been his favorite genres. While in college he studied various martial arts (including kendo, fencing, and aikido) and fell in with the medieval reenactment group called the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). He constructs medieval armor in his spare time and has a fledgling collection of medieval weapons from various periods. It was inevitable that his first published work, Creiton's Sword, would have as much of a historical feel in detail as possible. Steven is presently putting the finishing touches on his second novel, When Dragons Sleep, and is well into a third book that continues the adventures of Bryant of Bren that began in Creiton's Sword. Steven currently lives in Atoka, Tennessee with his wife, son, and various pets of questionable lineage. |
