Steven Welch was raised on Marvel Comics and pulp paperbacks, sitting on his Mom's lap in a small apartment in Ankara, Turkey. He saw his first film in a Turkish theater...King Kong Escapes. Nothing like catching a little Japanese monster movie action in downtown Ankara, late 1960's. That left a mark. So you can say that his love of fantasy, horror, and adventure is deeply rooted.
He's been a ski show announcer, theme park creative director, radio morning show host, actor, 7-11 employee on the midnight shift, improv comedian, and line cook. Welch has had the good fortune to travel from Ecuador to India doing something incredibly unlikely, announcing water-ski shows, with the Stars of Florida - a roving band of water-ski warriors, mystical drinking shamans, and renegade cultural emissaries.
His wife Cindy and his daughter Sammi are his light.
"Elise and The Astonishing Aquanauts" is his first book.
