Wayne C. Stewart


I write stories because I think stories matter. While "Totems" began as half personal dare and half rainy day downtime activity, I quickly began to realize that the characters and scenes coming together on the page meant something to me. And I hope they will to you, as well.

On the educational background side of things, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Psychology and a Masters in Christian Worship Studies. I have long been fascinated by the complex worlds and characters of geopolitical thrillers and find that questions and conversations raised in both the arenas of psychology and theology have much to contribute to the human condition and the world we live in.

As a displaced Seattle native I am still a rabid Seahawks fan and lover of good coffee. My wife, Breta, and I have three amazing children, all off making the world a better place with the investments of their hearts, minds, and creativity.
