Again, welcome dear reader. I appreciate you being brave enough to check out my site (I can be a bit odd at times . . . okay, most of the time) and for having an interest in my career. I have spent the last few years writing westerns as a dude (pen name: Stephen Burckhardt) and working on the social media and website for that pen name.I plan to be working more under my own name within a year or so after I finish the Into the West Sagsa Serial including the audiobooks. It should go faster now that I'm somewhat "out of the closet" as it were as Stephen, it was dark in there. Read more.
