About Steve

I earned a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Alabama in the early 1980s. After that experience, I worked as a stockbroker for a few years, then earned a J.D. from the University of Alabama School of Law and practiced law for more than twenty years. As a litigator, I did everything from capital murder defense to securities class actions.  Now I've retnrned to my original interests. My first novel, Cold Winter Rain, will be available late in 2012.
