Writer Biography - Steven C. Martin

Steven has been writing all of his life. His most recent creations have been a six-time award-winning teleplay (The Paperboy Chronicles) and an award-nominated screenplay. Additionally, he has written and illustrated a children's evangelical picture book (Mrs. Gail and the Good News Club) as well as created original music.
Working in the Motion Picture and Television Industry, Steven has been frequently asked, "Whatever happened to the good ol' movies and TV shows the entire family can enjoy together?”
It got him to thinking that THAT would be his niche: writing wholesome, faith and family-friendly scripts. And he is enjoying it immensely, along with his beautiful and creative Chaplain wife, Ruth.
