Author Details

About : A former administrative professional and licensed real estate broker, I've always had a passion for books. "Books are a great way to have an adventure that you might, otherwise, never have the opportunity to experience. To be totally engrossed by a great story that can take you on an imaginary adventure, allowing you to forget about the world around you for a brief time and make some great discoveries, is the best feeling in the world." My goal is to provide adventures through words for others to enjoy and maybe even learn something in the process. My main focus is providing stories for children by writing historical fiction, where a child can learn what life was like for their counterparts of days gone by and appreciate the modern world's amenities that most of us take for granted. Most kids today are so wrapped up in their electronic toys, video games, computers, etc. My goal is to get our children back into the habit of reading books. To discover the joys of sitting outdoors under a tree or on their front stoop while absorbed in a great story, breathing the fresh air and enjoying the sunlight. It's much better than being inside all the time playing video games.

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
