About Steve Bartholomew

The author was born a long time ago. He spent three years in the US Army where he learned a lot of vital skills, such as how to use a soldering iron and screwdriver, as well as how to make the bed, mop the floor, and wash dishes. He grew up and spent most of his life in San Francisco. After obtaining a useless liberal arts degree, he became a social worker and did more than 20 years in the mean streets of New York City, San Francisco, and rural California. He is now devoted to writing books, which he should have been doing in the first place. He has written some science fiction and fantasy, but is now mainly interested in tales of the Old West.

Review by: Sue A. Lehman on Jan. 26, 2012 :
Nice story, Bart! Love the bits of humor and character growth in this short novella. Fun action bits with the various battles and escapes in and around the fabled castle. Also love the names of the characters too.

A mixture of fable and fantasy this should appeal to a variety of readers of all ages. Rymer is deprived of his beloved lute and sets out to reclaim it. His search takes him into unexpected situtations with twists and turns which keep the reader engaged throughout.
