Donald B. Stephens - my story

My Work


I spent most of my life never knowing my talent for writing or my love of reading. I was a troubled, rebellious youth who would have ended up a sad statistic if I hadn't met my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in my early twenties. I fell out of trouble and landed in a job with the Xerox Corporation, where I've stayed for almost 35 years. A decade ago I went back to school and found out that I had a way with the keyboard of a computer. I've been writing ever since. I've finished three novels and have several others in the works. Fiction is rewarding to my psyche, but is as difficult to succeed in as becoming a successful actor. Freelancing gives me an outlet for creativity and helps pay the bills.

My Community


When I first explored writing, I joined a website called "Authonomy", which is now a defunct site where writers would meet other writers from around the world to share experiences and learn from one another. I still keep in contact with a few of those wonderfully creative people on Facebook and I owe much to many of them. If you're a writer who would like to correspond, I would enjoy the chance to get to know you better. My contact page isn't just for new business.
