Stephen Brown

Biography

Painter, photographer, traveller, Reiki healer and horse trainer, Stephen Brown is a lover of Creativity in all its guises. His writing is varied, from fantasy, sci-fi and other novels, to poetry and haiku. He tries to be both deep and thought-provoking as well as humorous and nonsensical at the same time. In no way does he see the two things as contradictory. Feel free to drop by and take a look at what he’s up to. Come on now, don’t be shy...

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To unleash the power of the imagination! Sometimes (depending on the type of book) there may be something in particular I wish to express, an issue to hop up onto my soapbox about, but more often it is the sheer joy of creativity. The act of putting the imagery I have in my mind into words so that other people will be able to see and sense the same thing
What are you working on next?
A couple of novels based in a fantasy world I am in the process of fleshing out, and also a couple of Sci-fi ideas, one of which at least is a space detective story. I tend to have loads of projects on the go at any given time until, at a certain point, I've reached that moment when I must dive into one of them exclusively until it is finished.
