“Curiosity: The Gateway into Knowing” gives you the chance to have true insight. Becoming curious, you will look inside yourself and see yourself through fresh eyes. Knowing yourself a bit better, a new perspective emerges. Transformation and healing are possible and you can live spiritually empowered. Here is the gateway; it is your time to know. I highly recommend walking through these pages.

“According to Eric Butterworth and quoted by Steven Howard, ‘The chief work of man’s life is to always Call to rembrance his true nature, which is created in the image and likeness of God who is love, and get on with the business of life–which is for loving.’ Steven Howard has brilliantly demonstrated this guiding spiritual principle through his authentic and powerful written parables. Enjoy the correlation in your own ‘going deeper.'”

It touched my very spirit! – June 21, 2018
“From the moment I began to read this masterfully-written book, I had difficulty putting it down! Steven Howard has woven the life’s journey of young Darien into a compelling narrative that touched my very spirit brought tears to my eyes, and propelled me to want to continue with Book 2, which I’m also enjoying immensely! I’m glad the chapters aren’t too long, which means that I can navigate through Darien’s adventures without feeling “bogged down” in a long chapter. If a down-to-earth, no nonsense book interests you, I highly recommend The Darien Chronicles!”
– Rev. Ann Marie Acasio
I became emotionally attached to the main character, Darien, in the first book, “The Darien Chronicles, Part One – In the Beginning”, where the author does a wonderful job of writing from the perspective of a young boy. The author makes you feel the fear, sadness, and anger that growing up can do to a young person. It’s easy to relate to Darien’s experiences and why they had such a profound impact on his later years.
“Part Two – Into the Wasteland” builds on Darien’s problems and how they affect his life. While reading this part is no walk in the park, due to the negativity Darien experiences as well as his own negative viewpoint, it is vital to understanding how he came to that point in his life.
“Part Three – Moving into the Light, had me cheering for Darien for getting his life together. It didn’t happen overnight, there was so much work involved and much introspection, as well as connecting with his true nature. His story shows that we are all capable of love and joy if we look for the light within each of us.
I highly recommend all three of these books!

“Inspiration reminiscent of Richard Bach’s Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I could feel where this work came from and it moved me to my core. Truly a story that will speak to you on many levels.”

“Hi Steven, ‘Just finished Part 1 of The Darien Chronicles. You are a powerful, gentle, and inspiring writer, just as you are a powerful, gentle, and inspiring man. Thanks so much for your first masterpiece. I truly enjoyed it and can’t wait for part 2.
Love and blessings to you!” – K. D.
“Steve Howard’s debut book is a thought-provoking, coming-of-age story about a young, adopted boy struggling to survive in a dysfunctional family and seemingly dysfunctional world. The reader is immediately immersed into the character’s emotional turmoil which is punctuated by brief interludes of spirituality. The book is a well written, captivating read. I am looking forward to following Darien’s journey in the sequel, ‘Part 2 – Into the Wasteland’.”
