Jim Steinberg has been a lawyer, blacksmith, middle school teacher of English and Social Studies, college teacher of Criminal Justice, hippie, and director of basic law enforcement training at a community college. He now divides most of his time between his loved work as a mediator (thirteen years in a small private practice in his home and in tribal courts in Northern California) and his greatest love of the last two decades, writing fiction. He has published one novel, "Boundaries," and two short story collections: "Filling Up In Cumby And Other Stories," and "Last Night At The Vista Cafe, Stories." His current project is a second novel - "The Third Floor," a story about twins, a brother and a sister.

Ian McEwan’s Atonement touched me deeply. It reminded me of how much, as a reader and writer, I am drawn into characters who hopscotch between the permitted and the forbidden. Many readers and writers are interested in novels that do this. If they’ve not thought about it this way, some might discover that it’s one of the qualities of some of the stories they’ve enjoyed.
