Aiken Wine & Sign Regional Book Signing Authors
Steve Gordy, Author
Steve has been an apprentice writer since 2003, when he joined the South Carolina Writers' Workshop. He has two books currently in print, both available from Amazon.com:
His first novel, Faith, Hope, and Dr. Vangelis, will be published in the spring of 2019. It poses the question: "In a world of pain, who heals the wounded healer?" The healers in this tale are Lukas Vangelis, a hospice physician and his niece, Diana Karras, a registered nurse. They have been both healers and spiritual guides to the dying for two decades. Lukas seeks relief from the burdens that have worn him down. A series of messages from departed friends and loved ones hint that the end of the road is near. The path to his healing is laden with obstacles and unexpected dangers. Only when he takes on the care of a dying young woman does he recognize that her four-year-old son is "the one who is to follow." It's a story that will leave you with a lump in your throat and, quite possibly, tears in your eyes.
He's at work on other projects as well, of which a recent addition is Meredith's Song. This celebrates the extraordinary, all-too-brief life of Meredith Legg Stapleton (1987-2014). A standout basketball player for the USC Aiken Pacers, her five-year battle against melanoma gave an example of courage, determination, and deep faith that are her legacy to the world.
Steve and his wife, Ruth, have lived in Aiken, South Carolina since 1988. He is a past state chairman of Kairos Prison Ministry in the state of South Carolina and is a member of the board of directors of the South Carolina Writers Association. He is also a member of the North Carolina Writers Network, the Georgia Writers Association, and the Florida Writers Association. He is retired from the Savannah River Site and Piedmont Technical College.
