How do you describe an author who writes humorous fantasy?
Do we tell of bookshelves full of fantasy, scifi, and paranormal, his love of mythology, or the years he spent as dungeon master? Perhaps it's more important to know his favorite player-character was a chaotic-good elven fighter/mage? And what about that stack of old comic books he never seems to get rid of?
But there's a serious side, too. The other half of his bookshelf bulges with titles on management, marketing, computer programming, and financial analysis. What about his years as a hospital president, the many businesses he created, or the time he spent in board rooms? What about his early years counseling drug addicts, or his years as a stock trader?
What is he seeking in his travels around the world? Why choose places like King Arthur's Camelot, the Temple of Delphi, Buddha's Tree of Enlightenment, China's Forbidden City, or the Great Pyramids of Egypt? What is he after?
What does this have to do with writing good fantasy?
Perhaps it's that dichotomy within Steve that makes The Universe Builders such a powerful story.
