A former expert IT Project Manager, Steve Stone has a number of award winning developments under his belt. Steve threw off the shackles of computer contracting in 2005 to become a full-time writer. He waited many years for an opportunity to begin penning his 'Intrepid' series of five novels, with matching screenplays. To date, the first three novels and screenplays are complete. Steve currently plans to release the fourth and fifth novels of the series in 2013/14.
Because the central characters are exposed to increasingly dangerous and complex challenges, multiple genres are explored; space, war, horror, historical mystery, gangland, disaster, comedy, and the stories consequently appeal as both action adventure and science fiction. So if you are a big budget film producer looking for your next formula fiction box office smash hit, Steve would love to talk to you about his screenplays!
Steve was born in Bristol, England in 1962, and was married to Debi in 1995. He has travelled to many parts of the world, his three-month tour of New York and Florida with Debi being of particular inspiration to the 'Intrepid' franchise. Steve has enjoyed a busy life, and has many accomplishments outside of his IT and writing careers;

The stages for The Two Storms are set. One is a political one when the Russian and American Presidents are shot, the other is a devastating hurricane.
As with reading any sequel I always set the bar higher, and for this one I wasn't disappointed. The characters all fall into place and are easy to keep up with. Confronting a hurricane with a neutron bomb from a B-2 Spirit gets serious cool points as well. Going against mother nature comes with an awesome sense of class this round. But first the Intrepid crew will have to survive another attempt at time travel to get behind the storms with enough time in their hands to prevent them.
After that, saving the world from a Cold War comes down to taking on street gangs to get to bottom of who The Chinaman is, and just as importantly, who he is working for. I was left right up to the very end trying to figure out the mysteries of identities here. I will read on to Intrepid - Revelations.
