Everything I Write Is True - Except For The Parts I Make Up

"The characters and scenes are well written."

Jeff Shaw - author of Lieutenant Trufant and the Bloodline series.

Steven first published short stories about life adventures through a national magazine. A Miami native who was always curious, he's explored careers in newspapers, law enforcement, healthcare, and technology. Eventually, he pursued writing full time and left his corporate job. Through those experiences, he creates stories of love, mystery, human frailty, and the reality of truth. Through imperfect and honest characters, he crafts a fictional journey that mirrors human nature. He loves to keep you on the edge of your seat with twists and turns served with love and compassion. Apart from his short stories, Steven released two novels narrated through an engaging voice, drawing from his own life and emotions. Life keeps him near the Atlantic Ocean in Northeast Florida.

A mesmerizing look at one man's fall from grace and the age-old struggle for redemption. This tender story is for any of us who have fallen and found the only way up is by reaching out a hand to others.
