Stephen was born in Los Angeles, California. The son of a second-generation deputy sheriff, he spent several hours each week after school (both grade and middle) at the local library. In high school, he was highly active in art, sometimes taking as many as three art classes per year. During his junior year he enrolled in journalism, where he produced a great many articles for the Opinion page. After high school he wrote his first science fiction novel. He took the skills learned in those exploits and produced his first published novel, The Army of Light, in June of 2013. When not working, he divides his time between hanging out with his wife, Jamie, writing, or tinkering out in the garage. Unless otherwise noted, Stephen does all his own graphic design work.
