“A rocket of a read!”
…says the Austin American-Statesman. Steven delivers ”something really different with a small-town Texas Gothic…An interesting, offbeat book, written in a quiet tone despite its sensational subject and its twist in the conventional serial killer psyche,” says The Poisoned Pen Booknews. At once a literary novel, a murder mystery, and a gothic romance, Have You Seen Dawn? pays homage to the genres it evokes, even as it quietly subverts them. Now available for Kindle, Nook, or iBooks.

“A riveting historical mystery…fascinating and provocative…”
…says the New York Times about
A Twist at the End, Steven’s epic novel about the Texas Servant Girl murders of 1885—America’s first recorded serial murders—now available for Kindle, Nook, iBooks or Audible audiobook). Using O. Henry as his fictional hero, Steven artfully blends real characters and true crime in an engrossing work of fiction. “Saylor, a veteran of the historical novel, navigates these rapids with confident skill...Better still, in the manner of O. Henry himself, he saves a cunning twist for the end.” (Washington Post Book World)
