Rest in Peace, Mary Salmon

In December 2014, Steven included the following with his Christmas message to friends and family: "I owe Mom my life! There isn't anything that I can do to pay her for what she has done for me except keep writing." His mother - Mary Salmon - devoted 47 years of her life to caring for Steven. Sadly, she passed away on Saturday, July 11, 2015, at age 74.

JUNE 2016:

Just under a year ago, Steven was mourning the untimely death of his mother, but what a difference a year can make! Steve has been oh-so-very busy in recent months, writing,  guest lecturing in English classes "up north," writing, attending the annual Writers' Conference at UW, writing, coping with his new life, writing and rewriting. All work and no play, however, would make for some mighty dull prose and poetry, so he's factored in some fun, too. Here's a photo of Steve and a good friend enjoying The World's Biggest Brat Fest in Madison, Wisconsin.

Steve joked later that
"Rita tried to d
rowned me!"

So much has been happening in Steven's life
- both personally and professionally -
within the past two months.

Steven and his cat, Lindy, have recently moved
 and settled into a new home adjacent to a park. While Steve works at his computer each day, Lindy keeps a watchful eye on him from
her cat tree nearby.

Steven's books are currently unavailable;
but please stay tuned and check back.
He is revising previous editions
as well as working on totally new books.

Steve's kitty, Lindy, was adopted in September 2013 at Shelter from the Storm, an all breed dog and cat rescue located in the Madison, WI area.

Steve taught himself Morse Code and now uses it to type rather than the voice-activated system he previously used. Steve is shown in the first photo below wearing the headset he used with his old voice-recognition system. The second photo shows the buttons he now taps at either side of his head to use Morse Code. Using Morse Code is much faster!
