Meet the Author

Steve Powell is a retired bond trader. He has degrees in finance from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He spent the first half of his career at Bankers Trust Company in New York and London. In 1994 he founded his own firm, Smith Point Investments. He ran Smith Point for fifteen years.

Steve is an avid runner and a struggling but optimistic golfer.

He is married with four grown sons and lives in Connecticut where he owns a small gym and writes.


The idea for his first novel, Charlie, developed from the brutal and still unsolved murder of a distant relative. His most recent book, Term Limits, was written in part out of frustration with the political situation in the United States.
