  • Steve_Vernon_FV_1Aspects of writing a serialized story (Steve’s Flash Virus Series), elements of humour in a thriller/horror story and the perspective of being able to laugh at life.
  • Steve’s first published story in the mid 1980’s in a magazine that featured “Busoms, beards and big bellied bikers.”
  • Embracing both traditional publishing and self-publishing as a hybrid author and how that syncs beautifully with how Steve really “isn’t a writer, just a windbag who likes to spin yarns”
  • The importance of being able to adapt and continue to learn as a writer
  • A few of Steve’s titles: Sinking Deeper, Maritime Murder, Tatterdemon Omnibus
  • Steve’s favourite advice for writers
  • Some book recommendations from Steve (The Scorpion Races & The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater)
