Stephen Elder


I'm a writer now. I've wanted to write since I was sixteen, but life intervened. It has taken over fifty years to get here.

I started out as a university professor, then went into construction because I needed tangible reality. Later on I turned to home inspection because I missed teaching. I also realized that it was easier to criticize than to create.

Along the way there were other obstacles that I am not going to mention here, but I finally made it back to my first love, writing.

I write mainly to entertain. If some edification or agendas sneak in, sorry. It's not easy to get rid of the teacher. I hope you enjoy my books.
