National Bestselling Author Steven Manchester (Photo courtesy & permission of the author.).
“…Steven Manchester has found an amazing way to chronicle an individual’s life.”
— Noonie Fortin, author of 2002
“One of Steven Manchester’s many talents is the ability to create characters that could be your own family or next door neighbor. You feel what they are feeling and you experience the trauma as if you were present on the farm. His description is rich in detail, but just the right balance for you to know about Montana without being superfluous. He writes with poetic magnetism, keeping you enthralled in the story without flashy gimmicks. It’s humble, down-home, and a well-written story you won’t want to miss.”

“‘To me, there’s nothing better than a good story,’ his grandfather said, and Manchester knew it, too.
“I felt as if I were a ghost shadowing his every step, seeing what he saw, hearing what he heard, and feeling his emotions. I laughed, I cried, I smiled, but above all else I was touched beyond measure. In the end, Sergeant Manchester sacrificed almost everything for his country and the Iraqi people. He returned home to a hero’s welcome, but also to a government that shoved him out the door and left him to fight his physical and mental pain on his own. Finding peace within him proved to be a cruel battle in its own right. I recommend you read The Unexpected Storm, and then you’ll
understand why I continue to thank Sergeant Manchester and soldiers like him with every breath I take.”
— Margaret Marr (Amazon review)
“Years ago, I heard that ‘a good writer makes readers think, while a great writer makes readers feel.’ I have always strived to achieve the latter.
“Unless a book is going to move someone, it’s not worth the time for me to write it. At times, it was difficult—because if I can’t cry, then I don’t expect my readers too.”
Connecting with other people. I believe that none of us is ever alone—not ever—and that we’re all connected. Each one of my stories is intended to prove that.
When I first heard about Steve, he was referred to me as a local author. Now that I have known him for some time, I can amend that reference to the fact that he is a national, bestselling author. He merits such honor.
