Featured Author – Scott Stevens

scottI asked Scott if he wanted to feature on my blog, he happily agreed and here we are.

Alas, communication has failed us and now the planned interview has to be postponed. Instead I would like to introduce him to you by presenting his bio.

The man has some very sensible things to say on addiction and sobriety.

Stevens is a journalist, posting regularly on health and alcohol issues for online news services. Many popular alcohologists on air and on bookshelves have stellar credentials, but few have had to eat their own cooking. Stevens blends his stunning personal 86-proof-two-liters-a-day story with thorough research into alcoholism, sobriety, relapse and recovery.

A former mutual fund industry executive, Stevens blends wit, journalistic objectivity, blunt personal dialogue and no-nonsense business perspective in his two books, 2010’s What the Early Worm Gets and 2013’s Indie Book Awards finalist, Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud. He regularly addresses conferences around the country on the latest trends in the field of alcohol use disorders.

Among his life experiences, Stevens has met seven Presidents of the United States, flown with the Navy’s Blue Angels, piloted a Los Angeles Class nuclear submarine and driven a NASCAR at 140mph on a one-mile oval. The football fan and avid golfer holds a Master’s in Public Affairs Journalism from the University of Illinois – Springfield and lives in the Midwest with his children.
