About Steve

Steve Roberts was born in Greenville, Ohio, the son of a small-town golf pro and a mom who managed the golf pro shop. The small family lived in the other half of the pro-shop building. Later the family grew to four children as they moved around Ohio in search of more financially rewarding work for Dad. Finally settling in Lima Ohio, Steve’s parents taught the four kids by the rule of wise sayings: “If you do that again, I’m going to knock you into the middle of next week,” and “Hard work is good for you, it clears out the pores.”

Steve worked his way through college earning a BS degree and an MBA. After the Army, Steve and his new bride, Jane, moved to the Detroit area to work for Ford Motor Company. Steve worked in the auto industry in Detroit and Europe for 35 years. Jane and Steve have been married 50 years and they live in Dearborn, Michigan where they raised four children and now chase after 13 grandchildren.

The inspiration for his work is to attempt to write compelling stories, usually based on true events, which will entertain and inform. As a storyteller, Steve says the idea is to attract the reader to fictional stories with backdrops such as – the coalmining industry, the auto industry, circuses, or surviving hardship – which the reader might not pick up if the stories were written as non-fictional books.

Coincidently completing the circle back to his roots, Steve and partners build a golf course near Jackson, Michigan in the late 1990’s and Steve worked part time at the course for two years.
