Steven R. Drennon was born in Lawton, OK, where he first started writing at the age of 15. Since then he has collected over one thousand poems that he has written over the years. Some of those poems were released as six separate volumes of poetry. He later added two collections which resulted in nearly all of his poetry being available to the public for the first time ever. In addition, he has written a number of works of fiction and non-fiction that have been published as well.
Steven published a fantasy novel titled “Rise of the Raven” in the spring of 2011. He then released another fantasy novel titled “Three for Avadar” in the summer of 2011. In 2012 he released two suspense novellas, “Desperate Love” and “Shattered Vows”.
In 2013, Steven published two memoirs. “As Close As Your Favorite Memory” is an intimate collection of some of his favorite memories of each of his three children and his first grandson. (A second grandson and a grand-daughter have been born since this was published, so there will no doubt be a second edition in the future.) “Adventures In Retail” is a collection of stories that detail some of his experiences through twenty years as a retail manager.
In 2014, Steven began research for a series of historical fiction novels based on recipients of the U.S. Medal of Honor. Each of these novels will be a collection of dramatizations of the stories of several different recipients. The first in this series, titled “Heroes Over There”, concentrated on ten recipients from World War I and was released in the late summer of 2015. The second book in the series will focus on an additional ten recipients from World War I and will be published soon. The research has been completed for quite a number of recipients, which should lead to other books that will provide dramatizations for recipients from World War II, the Korean Conflict, and Viet Nam.
His second fantasy novel, “Three for Avadar”, has been re-released under a new title, “Sorcerer’s Scourge”. The original story was modified slightly so that it could provide the setup for a trilogy. The second book in the trilogy, “Defender of Omhri”, will be published soon, and the third book, “The Right to Reign”, will follow shortly thereafter.
