Stephen has been interested in personal growth and bringing out the best of people's potential for over 40 years. Even as a computer programmer, systems analyst and software engineer since the beginning of the '80s, his aim has always been to improve the quality of life for himself and others. This interest led him to learn about psychology and growth techniques, resulting in his becoming an NLP Practitioner (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) in 1993. At the beginning of 1994, he came into contact with Reiki, attending a First Degree Reiki seminar run by a Reiki Master of The Reiki Network® with his parents. Seeing Reiki's improvements to the whole family, they quickly went on to the Second Degree. It became apparent to him that Reiki was one of the best tools for the non-invasive support of personal growth that he'd encountered, so he applied for training as a Reiki Master within the Network. He finished his year's training mid-1996 and now gives treatments and teaches Reiki in English and German in England, Switzerland and Spain. In 2004, he began a training course as an adult educator, which he completed in the following year. As part of his training, he created the written training concept that The Reiki Network® now uses. He has begun working on a second self-help book and a series of smaller information products for personal development. In the meantime, he is writing novels in both science fiction and fantasy, plus several collections of short stories. Presently, he has switched to writing fiction, specialising in science fiction, space opera, fantasy, urban fantasy, magical realism, slipstream, interstitial, horror, fairy tales, fairy stories, noir, detective fiction, action and thriller, humour, YA, and children's stories. His first science fiction novel was published toward the end of 2021, and a dark urban fantasy anthology comes out in January 2022. He has another four novels, eight anthologies, and a self-help book in development.Read more Read less
