M.L. Steger

Biography

I was born in San Jose, California and have been writing my whole life. It started with poetry in elementary school, then in junior high and high school creative writing. I remember writing about my favorite eraser - sticking pins in it to give it arms and legs, and drawing a face on it, and calling it "Eraserman", the super hero of the writing world.

My love for writing grew to include not only humor but ghost stories as well. I have always had a love for horror/ghost stories. I have particularly always loved short stories since I can usually finish them in one sitting. My favorite short stories are "The Papal Magician" by Greg Allen and "He Cometh and He Passeth by" by H.R. Wakefield. Though I do have many others. I enjoy the paranormal detective Carnacki created by William Hope Hodgson, and of course, anything by M.R. James is a big enjoyment for me.

Though I do have episodes where I haven't written anything for months, I always come back to writing. Anything can give me an idea - strange looking vegetables at the grocery store. (They must be from another planet and are going to take over the world.) Or a phrase someone says. Maybe even a strange look someone makes. (Again, it may have something to do with vegetables.)

I have worked in customer service, technical writing, word processing, and currently staff secretary.
