JULIUS V ~ Warrior Pope is an action adventure and a romantic comedy set ever so slightly in the future. It pits the Vatican's popular, fun loving and charismatic "warrior pope" against the Vatican's greatest enemy.
After Pope Julius V's prized possession is stolen, he is forced to abandon his carefree papal existence. With an unlikely group of ex-Vatican Guards, Julius takes on the demented criminal mastermind and his group of martial artist nuns, and chases them across countries and oceans. But the closer Julius gets to recovering his treasure, the closer he gets to his past. Either can unravel everything, including the papacy and the Catholic Church. Failure could mean creating earth in heaven, which may be worse than hell on earth.

About the Author
Steve worked and studied with Jack for several years and the two collaborated on one of Jack's later books, "It's Not What You Eat, But What Eats You." During that time, Steve was also a yoga instructor, a bartender and co-owner of a martial arts studio that featured full-contact kick boxing. Although Steve is certain he didn't get hit in the head that often, he made several major questionable decisions. So, in 1989, he abandoned Oregon, came to Montana and that has been home ever since.
Steve has been fortunate enough to balance his Catholic upbringing not only with work with Jack Schwarz, but also with several Lakota and Blackfeet families who welcome him to their ceremonies. He also teaches critical thinking and writing at Montana State University. In addition, he gives talks on the Hero's Journey and how important both comedy and drama are to it. These eclectic experiences give Steve the impetus needed to create the prophetic action and characters he hopes you will enjoy in Julius V~Warrior Pope.
