Steve Royer's Go Indie Blog
From the Appalachian trail to the roaring rage of Niagara Falls, I have only begun to see the world. I am an explorer in all its glory. Curiosity has consumed my soul, and I will leave no stone unturned in life. Out on the horizon adventure and stories are waiting to be told mixed with deep blue skies and vast open roads. It is my promise to bring these stories home. By reading my work I hope you, the reader, can pull both pleasure and a something of substance to carry on with you. May it be a different outlook on life, or perhaps a new way of looking at something old, it would fill me with joy to know an impact has been made. The words I produce are only paint; you are the artist who creates the picture in your mind.
