Steven D. Bynum lives in Central California. Innate curiosity has led him to work as a beekeeper, cattle-farmer, youth-minister, behavior analyst, grant-writer, law enforcement consultant, well, the list is too long to complete. He hopes he never has to grow up and settle down. He's thrilled to add published author to the list, and he thinks he may stick with that one for a while.

He plans to follow his imagination and write the stories he finds there.
