I am so sorry to learn of this. I enjoyed tremendously working with Steve when I was buyer for his publishing houses. He was funny, friendly, honest *and* professional--a rare combination.

Steve was a wonderful rep and truly a good guy. I'll miss our conversations on the proper way to drink tea. My heart and condolences go out to his family.

I first met Steve in a professional capacity when he was running Ocean Light Press, and we soon realized that we were spiritual brothers. His broad knowledge and practical experience was stimulating and inspiring. I recall in particular a delightful esoteric conversation in my hot tub! Later, at my invitation Steve joined the board of Omega Publications, a small spiritual press, to which he gave generously and helped greatly. Steve I hope all of your deep questions are now answered for you. To his family, Miriam and I send our deepest condolences. He was a good guy, good company and a keen professional.
