About Steve

Steve Altier was born in a small town in central Pennsylvania. Aka "Lizardville." He currently lives in the Tampa Bay Metro area with his wife. Steve has four daughters and three loving cats.
He enjoys bowling, reading, and spending time at amusement parks. He loves to travel, take trips to the beach, or just laying around the pool spending time with family and friends. With his vivid imagination, he enjoys writing YA and MG children's stories.
Steve had aspirations of being a writer when he was young. He took a journalism course in high school. Life, however, as with most people, took him on a different path. He joined the Air Force after high school and spent four years serving and protecting this country.
When asked if he would branch off into a different genre other than children’s books, Steve replied he would like to work on young adult novels as well as children's books. I've written three children's books, We Can't Move at Christmas, Gabby and Maddox Adventures in Itlay and Blast Off with Gabby and Maddox. My latest work is a Young Adult novel titled Lizardville the Ghost Story and I'm currently working on the sequel to Lizardville.
Steve’s goal is to continue to work on his books, producing one to two a year. He indicated that it was a wonderful feeling and a sense of accomplishment to get the book written, work with the illustrators and in the end, see it all come together when it was published. He currently has 4 books on the market. They are,

We Can't Move at Christmas! Children's book 2013
Gabby and Maddox Adventures in Italy! Children's book 2014
Blast Off! with Gabby and Maddox - Children's book 2015
Lizardville The Ghost Story - Young Adult Book 2016

He also wants to work with local charities specifically related to children’s hospitals and clinics and recently with the Toys for Tots toy drive in the Tampa market.
Finally, when asked if there were any words of wisdom he would like to impart on his readership, he simply said,
“Always follow your dreams.”
