Steve Coate holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from Florida International University and has worked at two major metropolitan newspapers in South Florida. He was an English major prior to switching tracks to journalism and has also worked in sales (both door to door and telemarketing), catering, and the dry cleaning industry, providing a dearth of material for the speculative fiction he writes. He lives in Sunrise, Florida, with his cat, Bigby, and his roommate.
Steve’s debut short story, “Fetch,” appears in the anthology From Shadows and Nightmares (August, 2011) from Nightfall Publications.
When not writing speculative fiction, Steve works as an editorial assistant at the Sun Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale.
