Steve was born and raised in New Jersey and has been living in Colorado since 1989. After working in the business field for 8 years, he went back to school and became an Occupational Therapist. He has worked as an OT with a diverse population of clients including persons with brain injuries, newborns to toddlers in Early Intervention, and seniors in home health. Special was originally written in 2006 and was initially titled Kitty Wampus; it sat on his laptop for years and it wasn’t until his brother, Jim, successfully self-published a book of his own, The Killing of Ishi, that he got off his duff and started working toward self-publishing this story. Special was inspired by his daughter Kayleigh who suffered significant neurological damage at birth and attempts to detail what he has learned and observed as both a parent and a therapist. He lives in Littleton, Colorado and when not attending one of the kids’ activities enjoys hiking, photography, chai tea, dark beer and playing with the dog.
