Steve Anderson has been telling stories of one kind or another as long as he could string words together. He was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, and has lived all over the United States from Virginia to Wisconsin. He now calls the small town of Ottumwa, Iowa home. From his enlistment in the U.S. Navy after high school to managing a bar in his adopted hometown, Steve has had a variety of interesting jobs. He has visited many strange lands from the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean to Djibouti in Africa while defending truth, freedom and the American way. Steve and his wife Brenda enjoy spending time with friends and their extended family. You can often find him telling stories about his travels, embarrassing situations and other tall tales where ever he may be. Steve’s hobbies include world history, gaming, watching movies, listening to music, reading, and writing (especially science-fiction and fantasy). His favorite authors are Robert A. Heinlein, Piers Anthony, Frank Herbert, and J.R.R. Tolkien.
