Stephen grew up around Hartford, CT. He has a B.A. in English from Goucher College.

Home Statement:

Our homes are filled with both comforts and mysteries: we may have a garden, but woods lurk behind it; our kitchen brims with familiar clatter, yet ominous sounds inhabit the attic; one neighbor often comes over for a coffee and the other is invisible until one morning he lays naked in the street. We count familiar things when asked what is home and forget the unfamiliar is equally a part. And it’s the unfamiliar that holds the greater interest, the cellars and woodsheds, places where a flashlight is necessary because something hides there that we must uncover.
