Hello, my name is Steven Symes. I’m a full-time writer and editor. Part of my time is spent writing books, while the other part is dedicated to writing and editing for the automotive industry, particularly classic and collector cars. That work feeds into my interest not only in vehicles but also history.
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 for many years. I never stopped writing, because it’s my full-time job as well as my passion. Now I’ve returned to publishing books since I must tell my stories. With more writing and editing experience 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. I also will talk philosophically since that’s how my mind works, touching not only on writing but also life.
I thoroughly enjoy outdoor adventures and staying active, something that will come through in my blog posts and other writing. I’m also a dog owner
