Steven Ferry has been writing in a wide range of styles for publishers and corporations in North America for over a decade. He was born and raised in England but moved to the United States in 1978. While working as a British butler, he wrote his first investigative article, which was published by a national magazine. This inspired him enough to switch to writing full time shortly afterwards. He now teaches creative writing at the University of South Florida between writing assignments (and still occasionally consults as a butler). He became a US citizen in 2001. Pen names include Marc Steven, Steve Fury and others of which he has lost track.
