My name is Steven Gould and I write YA and adult Science Fiction. I am not Stephen Jay Gould (who I greatly admire.) On my good days I look something like this:
Here is a bio I sometimes use:
Steven Gould is the New York Times bestselling author of Jumper, Wildside, Helm, Blind Waves, Reflex, Jumper: Griffin’s Story, and 7th Sigma, as well as several short stories published in Analog, Asimov’s, and Amazing, and other magazines and anthologies. He is the recipient of the Hal Clement Young Adult Award for Science Fiction and has been on the Hugo ballot twice and the Nebula ballot once for his short fiction, but his favorite distinction was being on the American Library Associations Top 100 Banned Books list 1990-1999. “Jumper was right there at #94 between Steven King’s Christine and a non-fiction book on sex education. Then that Rowling woman came along and bumped us off the bottom of the list.” Steve lives in New Mexico with his wife, writer Laura J. Mixon (aka Morgan J. Locke), and their two daughters.
Jumper was adapted into the 2008 movie of the same name staring Hayden Christensen, Samuel L Jackson, Rachel Bilson, and Jamie Bell.

The name of this Blog comes from:
KO-KO (the Lord High Executioner): Well, a nice mess you’ve got us into, with your nodding head and the deference due to a man of pedigree!
POO-BAH (the Lord High Everything Else): Merely corroborative detail, intended to give artistic verisimilitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative.
