About The Author
Steve Bass is a native of Charlotte, graduating from Garinger High School (1975), and the University of North Carolina (1979- BA- Political Science/History). He later received a master of divinity degree from the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He has served as the senior pastor of Sunset Road Baptist Church in Charlotte since September of 1990.
Bass is married to the former Pamela Shipp of Durham. They have two adult children. Their son Matthew is married and teaches in the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System. He and his wife, Rebecca, have three children, Vivian, Zeke and Allison. Steve & Pam's daughter, Stephanie, has her doctorate in clinical pharmacy and is a specialist in intensive care medicine.
In his spare time, Bass enjoys listening to jazz and jam band rock, playing golf and cards with friends, reading and spending time with his grandchildren.
Bass says the idea for writing "The Redemption Treasure" came to him early on Christmas morning 2009. "I had undergone my third surgery in six months Christmas Eve morning. The pain block the doctor put in the wound site wore off sometime around one or two Christmas morning, and I was miserable. I was trying to get my mind off the agony in my shoulder, and somehow the plotline for the book popped in my mind."
By four o'clock Bass had gotten out of bed and begun to type out the plot that had been formulating in his mind. He says that basic plot essentially became the novel.
Because of the challenges a new author faces in getting a new book published, Bass is using the Internet and new publishing technologies to present his book to the public. If your readers or listeners have never been introduced to these new forms of media, an interview with Bass might prove to be insightful and interesting.
