About Steven: Steven Hutson is a native of Los Angeles, a child of the sixties, and a storyteller almost from birth. (He’s convinced that the Wimpy Kid books are based on his childhood, but he can’t prove it.) After several years freelance editing and directing a writers’ conference, he established WordWise Media Services in early 2011. Several agency clients have won prestigious awards for their works. He speaks frequently at writers’ events, writes an eclectic blog, and serves on the Board of Trustees for his local public library.
