Steve Renzi

I have been a sports coach, photographer, teacher, sales clerk, ranch hand, and deliverer of lost airline luggage. Father of identical twin boys who eat a lot. I live in northern Delaware and Arizona. I like to write stories about people and places that no one notices or that have been forgotten. I love fire-red sunsets and big old trees.
