My name is Stephen Mark Monteith. I’ve written short stories in various fiction genres, mostly sci-fi and fantasy, and am also working on a long-term multi-book project. While you wait for my novels to become available, you can use this website to find links to my other writings and projects.
Though writing is my major talent, I’ve always wanted to do more. This site is a place where I can bring all my creative efforts together. On my DeviantArt page, you can see my drawings and other artwork. My podcast Stephen Talks is my effort to offer my opinion on sci-fi/fantasy topics and other issues important to me, hopefully in a constructive manner. And my webcomic, Depressed Thoughts, is a way for me to explore my personal problems (without giving away personal details). In the days to come, I’ll be adding more content to each of these sites, as well as to my social media profiles. I’d appreciate any feedback you have on these efforts, as well as my writing.
I currently live in Virginia Beach, VA, and have for most of my life. It’s a perfect little city for me, with a balance of buildings and nature, and within driving distance of plenty of other interesting places. When I travel, it’s usually either to visit friends or to attend sci-fi/fantasy conventions. I make a yearly pilgrimage to Dragon*Con in Atlanta, GA, the largest fan convention on the east coast. It’s my hope to one day be an invited guest there and not just an attendee. I also attend a lot of local conventions. This area has more than enough to keep a con-goer like me satisfied.
If you have any questions for me, you can leave a comment somewhere on the site, or you can use the Socializes tab to find my social media links.
