Steven Spellman doesn’t have a history of degrees in literature, but while attending college for computer science, he was praised for his writing ability. One of his professors even assumed he had copied an assignment, saying, “Usually, when we see anything this good, it’s plagiarized.” Whether reading or writing virtually anything, Steven finds great solace in the ideas and imageries expressed in books. After a tragic accident, Steven was paralyzed for quite some time. Unfortunately, he will never fully recover, but is now an advocate for the disabled. Having been forced to sit down, Steven took the opportunity to revive his affinity for writing and has since written ten fiction novels. Throughout his early twenties, he continued to write, but it wasn’t until many years later, that his wife finally convinced him writing was his path in life. Three years after that, and dozens of submissions later, he could call himself an author when three of his short stories were published all in the same month.
If there is any absolute goal Steven wants for his life, it is that his readers may find something in his work interesting and whimsical enough to give them a momentary escape from the grating reality of life. This is the greatest compliment that can be paid to him as a writer.
Steven Spellman is a 32 year old career writer who lives in North Carolina with his beautiful wife and two gorgeous daughters, one of whom recently arrived into his clan. The only thing that comes close to being as important to him as his family, is his passion for writing.
