STEVEN L SMITHEN
I was born in Cherry Point, NC. Growing up a military brat I lived all over the USA ending up in Jacksonville, FL. Graduating from Baldwin Jr. Sr. High School in 1988. Joining the USAF shortly after high school and serving for 5 years. After separating from the USAF I became a commercial truck driver. Now I'm currently living in Rochester, NH with my wife Lori.
Growing up I had a vivid imagination, reading all things fantasy. Enjoying J.R.R. Tolkien, Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, etc... When not reading I can always be found rolling dice playing Dungeons & Dragons where I got my first real taste of writing by creating the adventures for the group of adventurers that my friends would play.
