Steven McFadden

Biography

Hello - I've been an independent writer since 1975 when I graduated from journalism school at Boston University. Since then it's been a series of intriguing projects in writing, healing, and consulting. Slowly, over the years I have authored over a dozen nonfiction books.

The titles I have listed on Smashwords arise out of the Soul*Sparks publishing venture in which I partner with my wife, Elizabeth Wolf. Most of my writing is published by other companies, including "The Call of the Land: An Agrarian Primer for the 21st Century." In response to an authentic and intensifying need, that book went into a 2nd greatly expanded edition in 2011 with NorLightsPress.com

In 2013 I'm at work on a host of consulting projects, and community involvement through our local food coop. I'm also writing another title for our Soul*Sparks series of ebooks, "Journey Among the Wind Walkers."

Peace and good cheer, Steven
