Basketball has been Steve’s passion since he played the game at school. He became hooked on it as a spectator when he saw Team Discounter Derby beat North London College in the Founders Cup final in 1984.
His first book, Chasing a Dream, is the story of basketball in Derby from 1976 to 1998. It sold out and Steve has plans for an update which will end in 2002 with the demise of the Derby Storm.
After being a finalist in the Alibi TV Search for a new Crime Writer competition, Steve set about writing his first crime novel – and of course it includes basketball as well as journalism. Who is responsible for murdering a couple of reporters? Can anyone from the reborn Derby Storm really have anything to do with it? Basketball-playing Detective Inspector Miles Davies has to dribble his way through a number of obstacles to find the killer.
Storm Deaths is expected to hit the bookshelves in late 2019 or early 2020.
