Steve Belanger has been writing since he was seven, after he read Stephen King's Carrie and thought: I can do this. His first published piece, written at the same age, was "A Christmas Carole," a short story inside of a Christmas card, created for his ailing mother. She smiled, and he was hooked. He's writing whenever he's not paying The Man (or is it the other way around?) and he lives with his better half, his greyhound and his one-eyed cat, who somehow still shoots him a wry glance when Steve's being bad. On most days (and nights, and weekends, and holidays, and--) he's hunched over his office desk, writing stories or novels, pounding the internet pavement, preparing story submissions for magazine editors and novel packages for agents, or pouring over papers and plans for his day job. And over-alliterating the letter P. He also eats and sleeps, on occasion. He enjoys baseball and breathing, when he has the time, and he's finishing his Masters. This is his first website.
A short story, "Hide the Weird," appears in the Spring 2012 issue of Space and Time Magazine, at a newsstand near you, or via www.spaceandtimemagazine.com. Feel free to shoot him an email--just click on the "Contact" link for the info.--or visit his blog, and comment on the "Hide the Weird" entry. He looks forward to your communication and he promises (with fingers crossed) to respond in a timely fashion.
Please check out an excerpt of his 76,000-word mystery novel, Cursing the Darkness, by clicking on "Writings." Steve is currently seeking representation for this novel.
