Meet the Author

A native of western Massachusetts, Steven now resides in southern Maryland with his college sweetheart (wed since June 1982) and 3 cats.

He comes from a working class, European-American family, which valued learning, including reading, writing and independent thinking. He also learned the values of freedom of speech, conscience and one's citizenship, including duty to family, friends and community. He graduated from Norwich, the military college in Vermont.

He is a brewer, cook, hunter, marksman, historical re-enactor, safety instructor and works in his shop upon projects of wood, metal, leather, cloth and other materials. He also likes to camp and walk in the woods.

He served for 9 years in the USAF Reserves in civil engineering (Prime BEEF teams) and communications security.

His interests are wide ranging, but the past decade has seen a concentration on the native spirituality of his European ancestors, brewing and writing.
