Meet the Author

Stephen W. Austen was born in Lafayette, Louisiana. "I was born in Lafayette and raised in New Orleans. But I truly grew-up as I travelled or lived in some thirty-four states." A Human Resources Manager, he now resides with his family in Monroe, North Carolina. My writings and interests are eclectic. My latest series, "The Paladin Papers" are fast-paced, fact-based military/techno thrillers. Based on today's events and often set in the near future, they offer thought-provoking entertainment. They will keep you thinking long after you put them down. "I am certain you will enjoy reading these stories as much as I did writing them. . ."
