Stephen Sottong was born in the rust-belt town of Kokomo, Indiana and spent much of his youth in the public library. He began writing at about age ten and continued sporadically throughout his working life. He now lives behind the Redwood Curtain in Eureka, California with his wife, four cats and four hives of bees while devoting himself to his first love, writing fiction and science fiction.
