Raz Steel was born in a chalet in Frisco, Colorado. His alter-ego was born farther east—or farther west if you go the long way. A storyteller his entire life, Raz finally decided to put stories to paper. He’s a pilot, a teacher, a recycler, and a dad. He holds a degree in Philosophy from Lafayette College and currently resides in Pennsylvania.
Raz’s writing career began after he became a pilot. Being terrified of heights (anything over the third rung of a ladder) the choice didn’t seem difficult: fly or write.
He tortured himself to get his pilot’s license to cure his fear, and now feels qualified to offer advice to other acrophobiacs — “Let me assure you, if there’s anything more terrifying than flying a single engine airplane 2000 feet above the ground with your flight instructor, it’s flying a single engine airplane 2000 feet above the ground—alone.” You have to fly solo to get your license. What could he have possibly been thinking?
Raz studies anything he finds of interest: tennis, ballroom dancing, psychology… vampires. He finds humor in all aspects of life and indeed includes it in all of his books. Raz is currently working on several new projects.
