Get to know Steve...

Birthday?  June 16, 1972
When did you start writing?  Initial credits were as a professional journalist in 1994; I wrote under a pseudonym for a moderately successful political blog in the 2000s and adopted fiction-writing as my own personal midlife crisis in 2010.
When and what and where did you first get published?
Nonfiction and political work aside, my first published work of fiction was "Thump Dumps a Chump" in the July 2015 Fabula Argentea.

What themes do you like to write about?
Problematic ones.  I have an aversion to consensus and a fondness for uncomfortable ideas and difficult questions.  If my reader feels completely validated and affirmed by my work, I've done my job imperfectly.
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work?
I read widely in a variety of genres so it's hard to pin down individual influences.  Any given story is probably influenced by my most recent reading; for instance, “Wizards Die By Stages” was largely inspired by discussion of the persuasion/compulsion dilemma by authors such as Scott Alexander and Levitt/Dubner.
