Stephen traveled many places, and his favorite place today is Las Vegas, Nevada. He said although it is known as the "Sin City" he said it's also the "Marriage City".
For 39 years Stephen has owned a Computer Software Business and decided he wanted to start writing. He wanted to write about his travels however he was told that those biographies don't sell and that he had to write women's fiction, which he knew nothing about.
He found the joy of writing so he took a stab at it and wrote his first one The Chapel of Eternal Love. He said it was a challenge that was not meant to be published. It was however and spawned a sequel.
Stephen goes to speak to people in Senior's homes, which he explains that he spoke to the activities director and asked if she would like an author to speak to the residents. From there he continued to speak to many of them and they now have "meet the local authors" series, whereby Stephen finds local authors and schedules them to speak.
Stephen also shared about different marketing techniques, which are very interesting.
Thank you, Stephen, for this interesting and fun podcast!
