Stephen has been reading, writing and reflecting ever since he can remember. His first published piece (the school year book of 1974) was his Grade 2 story about a family of mice being terrorised by a shark on the beaches of Perth. A prescient warning if ever there were one.
He currently works as a pastor and church planter for Providence Church, and in his writing dabbles in a number of fields, notably theology and culture. In collaboration with Sydney writer David Cornford he is producing a novella on a misguided quest for vengeance entitled The Queensberry Rule.
Stephen and his family live in the eastern Hills of Perth – a vantage point just high enough to give him a good idea of how incredibly fast the city is growing.
