About the Author: Steven Vaughn
Vaughn grew up in a small town just outside of Peoria Ill. Through his young years he had a knack for telling stories and writing song lyrics. In his late teen years he played in a band and went to college for art studies.

He has had many jobs taking him all over the US. One in particular was working on a line boat pushing barges up and down the major rivers. He have settled down a bit in my later years with a fantastic wife and two step children.

The youngest was his inspiration for the Justicar. She is extremely smart, but little common sense (typical 14 yr old).
