More about Steve Anderson:

Years ago, Steve Anderson planned to become a history professor. Then he discovered fiction writing -- he could make stuff up, he realized, using history and research to serve the story. Anderson writes novels that introduce a little-known aspect of historical events, mixing in overlooked crimes, true accounts, and neglected underdogs.

Anderson has written narrative nonfiction, short stories and screenplays. He has worked in advertising, marketing, and journalism. He's been a waiter, a language instructor, a copywriter. Nowadays he works as a literary translator of German to English and a freelance editor.

He has spent time abroad, mostly in Europe, and lived in Germany. His most exciting memories include striking out into Eastern Europe with a backpack when the Berlin Wall came down.

Anderson lives in his hometown of Portland, Oregon with his wife René. He's always been into soccer and follows Portland Timbers FC.
