Steven Sands


I've loved to read and write science fiction and action adventure stories for many years. I wrote my first story in the early-1980s on an IBM Selectric typewriter of all things - you remember those days when you pressed hard on the character key, it swung up and smacked a carbon ribbon onto the paper leaving a visible character on the page, one letter at a time. Wow, have things changed!

I am passionate about inspirational quotes, as you can see, as well as mainstream SciFi opera and AA, but always with a twist. I always want to through a curve to make it interesting and unusual while staying true to the genre and readers - my goal is to have readers think and smile, exhausted from the adventure.

I also strive to weave in my personal experiences into the story when I can, whether from travels, climbing, making or creative exploits. Every day, I get up at 4 AM, to write. It is amazing and wonderful.

My wife and I are very fortunate to live in the gorgeous Napa Valley in California, while I continue to work in downtown San Francisco. A bit of a hike, but worth the trip. No, we don't own a vineyard or winery, the rest is a long story I'll share on my website.
