Science Fiction and Fantasy author Steven M Nedeau resides in New Hampshire. Inspired by JRR Tolkien, Philip K Dick, Margaret Weiss, William Gibson, Peirs Anthony, and Stephen King, Steven M Nedeau twists his stories into mind bending tales reminiscent of popular TV anthologies like The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror.

Steven Nedeau's love of film might be the reason so many have noted the cinematic aspect to his writing style. His fantasy work has been compared favorably in reviews to Patrick Rothfuss and Terry Goodkind while his science fiction, inspired by his love for Bladerunner and Alien, have caused his beta readers to bring up the names of Andy Weir and Philip K Dick.

Having just published his first science fiction novel, Memory Rebo

Thanks for the question, Micah. I'm sorry it took me so long to get back to you.

What do I do to improve my craft?

That is a great question. I wonder how far out of the norm my answer will be.
First of all, I'm a strange egg. I'm an extrovert and an engineer and a fiction writer. I've been involved with most mediums of art, painting, drawing, dance, acting, music, and writing. I think because of this, my efforts to improve my craft (writing in this case) may differ from most other writers.

One thing I do is read, like many other authors. I read anything I can get my hands on and can fit into my busy schedule. I enjoy 'how to' books and have several about writing. Maybe because I'm a bit older and just starting my career as a writer, I'm still a little insecure about my abilities . But, I'm also an engineer, I study the writing styles in the fiction books I pick up and I find that I can be critical sometimes when it comes to punctuation and sentence structure. It makes enjoying a book difficult while I am reading. The real enjoyment comes later as I recall the tones and depth of a story.

Here's an example: I hated Neil Gaiman's American Gods while I was reading it. Only at the end, where I could review the entire book as one story, could I appreciate it for the beauty that it was.

I also try to look at life around me, not to describe it instantly, but to enjoy it, to feel it, so that when I want to use it later it will come from deep inside.

I watch bad movies. I watch good movies, too. But bad movies make me angry. The studio spent all of this money and this is the crap they make? The bad movies inspire me to write reasonable solutions for the problems my characters encounter.

I speak to people. I talk to readers about the books they love and then I read them. It gives me a deeper view of the people I meet. It's important to me to learn what they are looking for. I don't consciously use that information in my writing.

I guess I've written a lot of words I didn't really need.

In summary, experience life, study hard, enjoy people. :)(less)

Kirkus Review for Memory Reborn

Hello Everyone!

I just want to spread the word that Memory Reborn has received a Kirkus Review and, well, I really liked it.

Here are some highlights:

"This thought-provoking SF novel by author Nedeau painstakingly details the fragility of identity." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Nedeau also accomplishes the surprising feat of making the unpleasant protagonist likable by novel’s end; Darien is shown to mature a Read more of this blog post »

“Writers build emotional roller coasters.”
Steven M Nedeau

“And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a small café in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
