Stephan grew up in an orphanage in Scotland with his nose wedged in encyclopaedias. He spent his youth envisaging the world and beyond, until awakening one morn to find wings sprouted. Embarking on a career in worldwide tourism, he fluttered them far and wide.
He pretends to speak numerous languages, having lived in Germany, England, Greece, Dubai and Italy. Currently, he resides in Canada, where he reinvents his life experiences via his writing. While yesterdays inspire him, he combines those experiences with the possibility of tomorrows and a vivid imagination to create his unique prose.

If you ever have wondered what Scotland does on New Year's eve, this is going to surprise the heck out of you, because this story focuses on a New Year's eve and an event most unusual that has been reoccuring somewhere in the world every few years, spotlighting an area in blue...but until Scotland is highlighted, those other times just didn't quite cut it.
From its unusual beginning, to a wide array of not quite perfect people and their dysfunctional existences, this story covers several genres...mystery, science fiction, fantasy, humor at its most quirky, settings that are literally out of this world, and how does the author manage to get the reader thinking it's going to be one way only to jerk the rug right out from under you? never take anything for granted, but yes, it all ties together and nothing is here that is not crucial to the events. Plus when the people speak you hear them in their own Gaelic brogue, which adds to the originality of this wonderful tale.
