Happy January 2016

Welcome to the New Year and Thank You for reading my new blog!

Hope is eternal and eternal is forever held in hope that the future will be good.  This little bit of sharing will “hopefully” bring us closer together as we build on a conversational relationship of sorts.

This is new to me, so bare with me as we approach the attempt to communicate via this method.  I hope to bring to you some fresh ideas, some insights, here and there, and share a few good old looks at the past.

In my new (latest book, which completes my trilogy), “Under the Wedding Tree,” we take a look at some more contemporary times starting about the beginning of World War II and advance to about 2011 or so.  This time period is more contemporary to yours and mine lifetimes and the story allows me to share with you some of the more important aspects of these years.  The core of the book centers around the four major marriages on the family farm;  that of my wife and myself, and the subsequent marriages of our three grown children, showing how family customs and traditions often emotionally center around the old home place.

So, take a trip with me as we discover who we think we are, who we really are and even who we hope to be.  I think you will see yourself somewhere along the way!




Welcome. My name is Steven, author of “Under the Wedding Tree.” I’m so happy to have you as a visitor to my blog about my new book. This project is very special to me, and I hope to share some of that excitement with you here.

I’ll be using this blog to interact with you, expanding on some of the topics in it and blogging on some of the ideas related to my book. This is a great place for you to get to know me, and I’m looking forward to getting to know you, too.

What questions do you have for me? How do you relate to my book?

I’ll be returning here frequently with new posts and responses to feedback from you. Until next time, tell me a little bit about yourself.
