Stephen recently celebrated fifty years in music and broadcasting. He began writing as early as grade school; publishing a neighborhood newsletter on the family typewriter. He's grateful to have learned this skill at such an early age. Public speaking came easily and speech contests were won using the obligatory three by five inch note cards. His were blank. It seems the rush of improve made it more fun. Over the years, he has composed musical drama, a few jingles, written and produced fifty episodes of The Celebration Series for radio syndication, and co-produced "The First Ten Years" radio special for CCM magazine. In more recent years projects have included narrating audio books, recording live music projects, and producing a daily radio program heard on 500 stations. He looks forward to releasing the audio version of this book to include brief sound clips of some of these stories.
