Steven R. PorterWelcome... and thanks for taking the time to drop by and visit my website!

In 2011, I released my first novel "Confessions of the Meek & the Valiant." I often describe the book as "Catcher in the Rye" meets "The Godfather" meets "Love Story" and includes elements of intrigue, crime, romance, mystery and suspense. I was overwhelmed by the response it received and quickly went to work on a new book.

I now present to you "Manisses," which I finished this summer. "Manisses" is a historical tale that takes place on a fictional island off the New England coast (that locals will easily recognize as modern-day Block Island.) It includes stories of pirates, rum-runners, witches, native maidens and a host of other eccentric characters, all brought together by a little girl's doll and an inconspicuous pile of rocks.

And did I mention the girl's father is a spiritual medium?

It's a little different, but it's fun. And I know you'll enjoy it.

Thank You!

~ Steven R. Porter

Steven R. Porter - Confessions of the Meek and the Valiant

HERE'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT
CONFESSIONS OF THE MEEK & THE VALIANT

This book has absolutely something for everyone...intrigue, history, love and action! The words come together beautifully and create vivid pictures as you get deeper and deeper into the story. The character of Riley is so perfectly developed and where I thought I might have had an inkling of where the story was going, I was fabulously surprised! Not many authors are able to pull this off today and Porter has done so in this tremendously crafted novel!

----

In addition to the strong storyline, the writing itself is excellent.
It draws you into what is happening by making
the characters seem very real.

----
...a solid well-written enjoyable beach read kinda book.

----
Steve...the only thing disappointing about the book is the fact
that it had to end!!! Hurry up with another please!!!
