This is Steve's web site. It's mainly about the books and tales I write. Also a few random thoughts of my own from time to time. My publications are too numerous to list here, but you can see them all on my Amazon page.

My newest books as of this year are the McRae Trilogy. The first book is 
McRae. Murder at the Opera. Broderick McRae, reporter for the San Francisco Call  in 1906, finds himself haunted by a dead Italian soldier. The soldier wants revenge, while maybe saving the city. And Caruso is coming to the opera.

Next in the trilogy is
Elinor Juste.  Once  again McRae is visited by a disembodied spirit. Only, this time she is not dead. This soul is a living woman, lying in a coma thousands of miles distant. She wants McRae to prevent her husband from killing her. Is that too much to ask?

I am about to publish the third book in this series, Yama Man. I'm writing this in December 2021, Yama will make his appearance next month, January 2022. This time McRae meets a demon. Or is it a god? I will post a link here once the book is on Amazon. In the meantime, why not listen to a brief interview of me, on the telephone?


Yama Man


Yama Man is now live on Amazon. Third book in the McRae trilogy. A mine disaster has occurred in Bakersfield. Five miners are dead, but one survives, buried alive. Will he be found in time? Brod McRae goes to report on the story for his paper, The Call. Crazy Mollie shows up to help. Together they find there is more to this tale than an accident.
