Steve Bates is a professional writer with diverse talents and interests. During a successful career as a reporter and editor with a variety of publications, including The Washington Post, Steve published the award-winning book Seeds of Spring: Lessons from the Garden.
Not content to give step-by-step instructions for planting carrots and zinnias, Steve dug way below the surface, exploring why we garden and how we can gain insights about ourselves through our successes and failures. Now Steve is turning his focus to fiction, specifically science fiction. But while this seems like a major change in writing style and purpose, perhaps there’s a common theme here. Let’s find out.
