Biographical and Professional Information

Steve Bellinger was born and raised on the West Side of Chicago by a single mom who worked nights for a printing company. She would bring home books and magazines to encourage her children to read. This is how Bellinger discovered Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke and the other masters of classic science fiction. It didn’t take long for him to get the itch to write. Over the years, he's written everything from newspaper articles, comic strips and radio drama to short stories and fan fiction.
