Steven Nelson spent his childhood in Spain and moved to the U.S. at age 10, going on to study Business and History, including a year in Germany. Fascinated with storytelling since a boy, he has written numerous works of historical fiction, diving into the past for inspiration. His first published work is the authentic, translated manuscript of his Spanish ancestor’s memoirs from the 1800s. Next we will follow a band of fellows during the early Middle Ages, a fascinating time with its barbarian invasions, clashes between cultures, the slow fall of Rome, and for being known by that abused name: “the Dark Ages.”
More than anything he wants his reader to awaken in a bygone world that after so long still reaches out to us today. He is experimenting with interactive fiction, giving the spotlight to you, the reader, to face the moral conundrums of the heroes and take responsibility for the lives of our protagonists. Steve Nelson has worked as a language teacher, waiter and currency trader, living of late in Cincinnati.

Memoirs of a Rum-Runner
by Steven Nelson
This is the true life story of a Spaniard in the New World. Landing in Mexico as a boy in 1816, Clemente is at heart an entrepreneur, or mafioso; he hustles through wars, gambles against revolutionaries, teetering from one side of the law to the other. Between Havana, Tampico and New Orleans, he amasses fortunes and shakes his fist at death. A bronze statue of him still stands in Utrera, Spain.
