Steve McAllister was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. After attending three different high schools and three different colleges, trying countless different career paths and living in several different locations, Steve was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder at the age of twenty-nine.
With a degree in Psychology from Mars Hill College and Film Production Technology from Valencia Community College in Orlando, Florida, Steve produced the documentary Attention Deficit Disorder: Life at a Different Pace. He has since produced other such films as The Tide From Red to Blue, Yearning for Light, and Lesson Learned.
In 2001, Steve followed up his debut novel Descent by venturing out on the road to write his travelogue The Rucksack Letters. By car, hitchhiking, and motorcycle, Steve traveled through twenty-six states, visiting various communities ranging from a Buddhist monastery and yoga ashrams to hippie communes and New York City. The book was initially published electronically through emails as he traveled. The first edition was put into print in 2006 and a revised edition was released in 2011.
His latest book is called "How to Survive an Estralarian Mind Meld."
