Steve A. Anderson


Before devoting time to authoring and publishing his recent nonfiction book, “The Alternate Compass”, Steve worked for Boeing in Wichita, KS (28 years) with primary responsibilities in Systems Engineering requirements and design. He has authored numerous technical publications, which reside in the Boeing Library, and designed a web application specific to Large Transport Military Commercial Derivative Aircraft modifications for the United States. Steve continues to consult on a limited basis, and recently obtained a Trademark from the U S Patent and Trademark Office to support his unique book logo. A seasoned motorcyclist, he enjoys spending time in the saddle on the road less-traveled with an understanding spouse of 30 years, seeing the unique geography and diversity found in different regions of the U.S..

The Alternate Compass - A Craft Course on an Ironhorse is dedicated to those that ride the less traveled road, enjoying their craft for the health of it.
