A former expert IT Project Manager, Steve Stone has a number of award winning developments under his belt. Steve threw off the shackles of computer contracting in 2005 to become a full-time writer. He waited many years for an opportunity to begin penning his 'Intrepid' franchise of four novels, and four matching screenplays. To date, the first two novels and first three screenplays are complete. Steve currently plans to release the third and fourth novels of the series in 2012/13.
Because the central characters are exposed to increasingly dangerous and complex challenges, multiple genres are explored; space, war, horror, historical mystery, gangland, disaster, comedy, and the stories consequently appeal as both science fiction and action adventure. So if you are a big budget film producer looking for your next formula fiction box office smash hit, Steve would love to talk to you about his screenplays!
Steve was born in Bristol, England in 1962, and was married to Debi in 1995. He has travelled to many parts of the world, his three-month tour of New York and Florida with Debi being of particular inspiration to the 'Intrepid' series. Steve has enjoyed a busy life, and has many accomplishments outside of his IT and writing careers;
