About Stephen E Pennykid

Born in 1952, Steve Pennykid grew up on a Leicester council estate built to accommodate new families after the war and the baby boom of the 50’s and 60’s. Steve was an only child and although he had plenty of friends with whom to play football on the green outside his home, he had time on his hands to develop his love of the written word, and as a child always had something to read whether it be a football annual at Christmas, a thrilling children’s story or a Look and Learn comic. Writing though did not come until much later.

Steve took early retirement in 2005, which gave him a few years to achieve a number of goals he set himself to do before he was 60. One of these was to write a short story and try to get it published. This was a big ask as he had never written anything before. However, it was achieved in 2010 when a local story-writing competition gave him the opportunity. By then he had written one story – The News from Spain. He began to amend this story to suit the framework required for the competition but it soon became a completely different tale – Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.

These are both gentle romances but Steve's writing has become more eclectic with two detective stories, from his Chief Inspector Robert Casey series, under his belt and a children's short story coming soon.

Steve also loves music and you will undoubtedly notice a common theme in all his stories of titles and chapters containing the names of songs, particularly those from the 60’s and 70’s.

Steve lives in Loughborough and is married with two sons, a daughter-in-law and granddaughter.
