About Me

steve_sm2Steven R. Drennon was born in Lawton, OK, where he first started writing poetry at the age of 15. Since then he has collected nearly one thousand poems that he has written over the years. Some of those poems have since been released as six separate volumes of poetry. He has also added two larger collections which resulted in nearly all of his poetry being available to the public for the first time ever.

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 published a pair of suspense novellas, “Desperate Love” and “Shattered Vows”, and in 2013 he published a memoir titled “As Close As Your Favorite Memory”. This was followed in 2014 by a collection of humorous stories based on his experiences as a retail manager, titled “Adventures in Retail”.

Since late 2014 he has been researching and writing an historical fiction series which is a collection of dramatizations based on Medal of Honor recipients. The first book will feature ten recipients from World War I and is slated for release in the Fall of 2015. A second book is expected to follow in early 2016.

Steven decided to take early retirement in the summer of 2015 to pursue his dream of being a full-time author, and he currently lives and writes in San Antonio, TX.

    Hey there! I saw your link for author interviews on IWU and was wondering if I could do one too? I’ve written “Delivered to Eternity” on Amazon, but it’s under my name in search terms.

    Yours

    1. Hi Laura,
      I will get the questionnaire and info sheet sent out to you. Once I have your responses I’ll get you added to the queue. Thanks for dropping by!

  2. Hi

    I’ve published CONSUMPTION:A NOVEL
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0052YX8K8

    I’m trying to get some ideas to promote it – reviews and interviews are what I’m trying to build. Would you be able to help me? What can I do to help you? I’ve done a couple of interviews and am setting up a blog site at the moment.

    1. Hi Greg,
      I am sending you my questionnaire for an interview and a book plug. This will give you a couple of opportunities for exposure, and hopefully they will help a bit. I’ve found that by getting people to interview you and/or provide a book plug, it sometimes helps with a sale or two.

      I think the most important thing, however, is just getting your name out there so that people get a chance to find out about you and your book. Once I receive your responses I’ll get them added into my queue. Good luck with your efforts!
