Steve was born and raised on the West Side of Chicago by a single mom who worked for a printing company. She often brought books and magazines home for him and his siblings to read. One day she brought home a novel by Isaac Asimov, I. Robot. At the age of 12, Steve fell in love with science fiction and writing. Since then he has written newspaper articles, radio drama, short stories, Sunday School lessons, training manuals, fan fiction, and four novels (so far). He lives in Chicago with his wife Dr. Donna, who is his biggest fan.
