Samuel Stevens started dictating stories to his mother as a child, and has been writing ever since. He has also been a voracious reader from a young age; among his favorite writers and main influences are Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kurt Vonnegut, L.F. Celine, Philip K. Dick, and Joseph Conrad.
Stevens lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and where he goes to university studying for a history degree with a focus on Cold War era proxy conflicts in Africa and Southeast Asia. In his spare time, he enjoys military reenacting.
His debut novel is Phoenix Operator, about covert action in the Vietnam War and the 1960s cultural revolution, available in print and e-book. He also published a short story collection, In the Big City. His second novel, published in 2016, is the Spanish Civil War noir Lone Crusader, also available on Amazon.
Stevens’ editorials and news reporting is at the Salisbury University Flyer, where he was editorial editor and now editor in chief. His work has also been published at online literary journals New Pop Lit and The Casper Review.
