Growing up in a little town in the great northwest, Steve learned to enjoy the outdoors and all that nature had to offer. The beauty surrounding his home town of Colville Washington inspired his world of Tuwa. Every character in his novels was inspired by characteristics from people he either knew or behavior he observed. His magic is only limited by a person’s capacity and creativity. For over a decade now he has made mountain desert state of Utah his home with his wife and son. Some of his favorite authors are Terry Brooks, J.K. Rowling, Terry Goodkind, J.R.R. Tolkein, and Christopher Paolini.

The Orb of Nitesh Trilogy

The Orb of Nitesh trilogy is the revisitation of the story I began years ago. The first book in the series, Fallen, are the first two books combined together from The Guardian Chronicles. The third book in that series, The Dark Tide, will be the new second book in The Orb of Nitesh series and is called Darkness. This book is 50% done at this point.

The Guardian Chronicles : The Broken Council (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 14, 2010 09:50PM
Description: "Kishi felt her body temperature rising even though the spring morning was quite cool. Her temper was always just under the surface these days, and she was growing weary of being told what to do and how to think. Today that would all change, and nothing would ever be the same. She would do what she wanted regardless of what her sister chose to do. Her father, the king, would not have the satisfaction of using her as leverage against Kira. The lands of Tuwa are once again embroiled in conflict. Ancient councils are convened as old partnerships break apart, and new, tenuous alliances are forged. The threat of war is spreading throughout the land, and no one is sure what will become of the once peaceful land. The Guardians have been compelled to intervene as one of their own breaks sacred laws in search of forbidden powers. Lives will be lost, deception will abound, and life as the people know it will cease to exist. As events escalate, families will be forced to face off as circumstances spiral out of control. Former enemies will unite against common foes while the dark forces combine to fight for their right to rule. Heroes will be forged in the heat of battle on both sides. Prepare for battle...war will find you in the midst of The Broken Council."
