He has tried nearly 100 cases and now supervises other prosecutors. In addition, he uses his extensive experience to teach trial advocacy to Seattle law students.
As an author, Stephen pens the David Brunelle legal thriller series, featuring Assistant D.A. David Brunelle and a recurring cast of cops, defense attorneys, and forensic experts. He also writes the Maggie Devereaux paranormal mysteries, recounting the exploits of an American graduate student in the magical Highlands of Scotland.
In his spare time, Stephen enjoys painting, drawing, and spending time with his family. For more information, visit his website www.stephenpenner.com

BUT...I read the free sample and was hooked when the team finds a mysterious word carved into a wall or something. I don't want to spoil, but that word is famously associated with another mystery and so I was hooked and paid the $2.99 for this book. Let me say that it was a page turner for me. And I do forgive some of the crazy behavior of the crew because they were faced with something unexpected, something that I assumed NASA would not train them to face. Further, I wondered if maybe this crew was chosen for some of their flaws for a reason that would come out in the end. I also speculated that some of the crew were 'faking' their behavior for some reason that would also come out in the end.Read more ›
The book's premise has been done before, but that doesn't mean it couldn't have been done again with a slightly different twist. Almost everything has been done before. Unfortunately, there was no unique twist. I could guess the ending before I was halfway through the book.
Additionally, the crew was unbelievable--and I mean unbelievable. They were constantly bickering and at each other's throat. There's no way a crew like that could ever be put together, let alone sent on a space mission.

I like stories about mars, ( loved the Martian by andy Weir). This could have been a lot better. Flesh out the characters more and make them more likeable. Read morePublished on October 29, 2013 by MC
Badly written, poorly plotted, and I suspect the author did not even bother to do any research on Mars or NASA. Read morePublished on July 14, 2013 by todd v ehrenfels
