A journalist and mutual fund industry executive, Stevens has spoken at conferences nationwide. His own, candid, 86 proof, two-liter-a-day story is a startling trip close to death that hits close to home. He’s the Guy Next Door, not the common but outdated stereotype of an Alcoholic.
In What the Early Worm Gets Stevens spells out the differences between Alcoholism and alcohol abuse. He also exposes the ethical considerations of criminal justice and “rehabilitation” programs from a business executive’s experience. The programs taxpayers fund employ a one-size-fits-all view of alcohol issues. Billions are spent on barbarism and coercion instead of common sense, science and results. He saw it from the “inside” as well as through a journalist’s perspective.
His life accomplishments have been pretty normal peppered with outstanding experiences like meeting seven Presidents of the United States, flying with the Navy’s Blue Angels, piloting a Los Angeles Class nuclear sub and driving a NASCAR over 140 MPH on a one-mile oval.
"Most importantly, my children respect me and like me as well as love me. Not any of the experiences or things I accomplished in the lifetime before six disastrous weeks prepared me for the few years researching, writing and living What the Early Worm Gets and Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud. The experience I came through might surprise you to find out that the kind of coercion, stigma and misinformation that might be common in China goes on every day in 21st century America."
Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud is a look at alcoholism and recovery and the role of cortisol in relapse. Stevens uses the term Symptoms of Sobriety to indicate when lapse could be just around the corner, and adds in detail about the four stressors most every Alcoholic experiences that can jeopardize sobriety.
Shortly into 2015, his third book, Adding Fire to the Fuel, was released to critical acclaim.
The Founding Influencer at HealthTap holds a Master's Degree in Public Affairs Journalism from the University of Illinois - Springfield and resides with his family in the Midwest.
