Steve’s passion for writing began at a very tender age, and his first ever completed story was done during an English lesson. However, after reading the novel, Steve was compelled to talk to the school’s head teacher for almost one year, due to the bad language and violent content in the book. Steve’s next story was One Boy. This time the teachers loved the story so much that it got him an A. However, it took Steve nearly a decade before he started working on a full-length novel. The result was Crime against Magic, and the book is available on Amazon. Steve McHugh was born in the small village of Mexborough, Yorkshire. However, at the moment, Steve McHugh lives with his lovely wife and three daughters in Southampton.
