Born and raised in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, Stephen Lewis holds a doctorate in American Literature from New York University, and he is Professor of English Emeritus at Suffolk Community College, on Long Island, New York. He now lives with his wife Carolyn, an award winning short story writer, on five acres in a restored farmhouse on Old Mission Peninsula in northern lower Michigan.
He has published eight previous novels including the Edgar nominated mystery Stone Cold Dead (2007), and Murder On Old Mission (2005), a finalist in the historical fiction category of ForeWord Magazine’s book of the year awards. He continues working in various fiction genres and has also published six college textbooks, and numerous poems and articles.
A passionate sports fan, he claims to have had a near religious experience when the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup in 1994 after 54 years of futility. He hopes to replicate that experience some time soon with one of the other teams he follows.
