About this author

Jason M. Steffens grew up in eastern Iowa. He graduated from the University of Iowa College of Law. For nine years he practiced in the civil litigation division of one of Iowa’s largest law firms, becoming a partner at age 31. At age 35, he withdrew as a partner and ended his law practice so he could become reacquainted with his wife and children. They live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Jason is a member of Twin Pines Baptist Church in Robins, IA, where he has served as treasurer since 2007. Never on Sundays is his debut novel.


For nine years, I was a litigation attorney in a large law firm (large for Iowa, anyway). Nine months ago, I quit to do something that will almost assuredly not earn me any significant money. I wrote a novel.

Jason and 21 other people liked Ted's review of Playing for Pizza:
Playing for Pizza by John Grisham
" I started reading John Grisham books when I was the nerdiest sixth grader of all time and thought I'd grow up to be a lawyer. And though I found none of them particularly memorable, I did enjoy his huge slew of legal thrillers back in the day.

“Choose the things that matter to God. See things as He sees them. Whatever results, that is the best way.”
Jason M. Steffens, Never on Sundays: A Novel

“Certainty is a comfort. And a hindrance.”
Jason M. Steffens, Never on Sundays: A Novel

“It is so easy to have our eyes opened, but then close them again, pretend it never happened, and go back to doing what has always been done.”
Jason M. Steffens, Never on Sundays: A Novel

“It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.”
Leo Tolstoy, The Kreutzer Sonata

“A lifetime of glory is worth a moment of pain. Louie thought: Let go.”
Laura Hillenbrand, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

“If God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, why shouldn't we forgive? If we are faithful and just, we shall.”
Hesba Stretton, Cobwebs and Cables

“The sins of good men are greater than the sins of bad men. One lie from a truthful man is more hurtful than all the lies of a liar. The sins of a man after God's own heart have done more harm than all the crimes of all the Pagan emperors.”
Hesba Stretton, Cobwebs and Cables

“God chooses our kinsfolk for us; but man chooses his own wife; having free will in that choice on which hangs his own life, and the lives of others. Yet the wisest of men said, 'Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.' Ay, a good wife is the token of such loving favor as we know not yet in this world.”
Hesba Stretton, Cobwebs and Cables
