A last addition snuck in this weekend...welcome Steve Venables!
Steve Venables is a South Wales based writer, who works in the Construction Industry as a Quantity Surveyor. Steve has always written; short stories, novels and poems, but it was only when a friend of his, (a well established author), persuaded him to send work out to publishers and agents, that he began to take it seriously.
Since then he has had two novels published, firstly IRONBARK, and then THE DANCING MEN. His published short stories, include, CRUNCH!, BUILDING STORY, AMSTERDAM HEN WEEKEND, and most recently, THE CURIOUS DEATH OF STAN DUBBINS.
Steve is a fanatical Historian and revels in the minutiae of research. He holds a Bachelors degree, with first class honours, in History, and a Masters in the same discipline; he also holds diplomas in European Humanities, Classics, and Social Sciences; he speaks German, Latin and Ancient Greek.
