Hello, my name is Steven Symes and I’m a full-time writer. I spend part of that time writing books and the other part writing and editing articles about the automotive industry, particularly classic and collector cars.
My journey as a writer has been anything but straightforward, but oftentimes it’s finding joy along the way that teaches you the most. I published my first novel in 2010 and my second in 2012, but life took a detour and I stopped publishing. I never stopped writing, because it’s my full-time job as well as my passion.
I have an unnamed sequel to my 2012 novel for all ages, Gracie the Ghost Eater, nearing publication, although I don’t have a date yet. With more writing experience and now my working as an editor, I’ve never been better-equipped for this journey.
Using this blog, I seek to give you a peek behind the curtain of what it’s like to be a full-time writer as my career evolves, both in terms of publishing books and my other endeavors. It’s been an interesting ride I’m sure will continue to be as challenging as it is fulfilling.
If you have questions or need to reach me otherwise, reach out to me on Facebook or Twitter. Otherwise you can leave a comment on one of my posts with your contact info. Don’t worry, I won’t publish your comment if you ask me to not.
