Steven McFadden

Biography

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. Over the years I have authored over 15 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." I'm also the author of an epic, nonfiction saga of contemporary America - Odyssey of the 8th Fire available online at www.8thfire.net

Peace and good cheer, Steven
