About Steve Rodgers No, the ‘d’ is not silent.
Spellgiver is a tale of enormous forces that cannot be controlled, and the frail humans who try anyway (see Spellgiver tab on this website). This tale has received high acclaim both from hard-edged review sites like Kirkus/Foreword Reviews, and from real readers. Both Spellgiver Book 1 “City of Shards” and Spellgiver Book 2 “In the Claws of the Indigen” are on Amazon. Book 3 “Secrets of the Land” is being written now, and book 4 will follow soon after that.
After I finished the first two books, I put them on a shelf and started writing short stories. I have written over thirty, which I submitted in the 2013 – 2016 time period. In that time, I received 15-16 publications and multiple honorable mentions from the Writers of the Future (see Short Stories tab). My short stories have received acclaim from most who have read them, and I hope to release an anthology some time in 2019.
In late 2016, I stopped writing/submitting short stories to re-focus on Spellgiver, and finally bring Books 1 and 2 into the light of day. This massive birthing event was finally completed in 2018, when I released books 1 and 2 in April and May of that year. I also released the novella “Mountain Witch”, which is a prequel set in the world of Spellgiver. Books 3 and 4 of Spellgiver are forthcoming.
I live in Southern California with my wife and golden retriever. I’m an engineer by trade.
