After 26 years as a professor at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, Steve Schach, a Cape Town, South Africa native, recently moved to Sydney, Australia. Before he began writing thrillers.
Steve wrote 13 best-selling software engineering textbooks, which are used in universities all over the world. Down Under, Steve intended to become a full-time grandfather, and limit his intellectual activities to solving cryptic crossword puzzles and avidly watching Sesame Street. However, the urge to write proved to be far too strong to overcome, hence his growing list of thrillers: Old Bach Is Come, Coopers Island, (co authored with his wife Sharon Stein), Highly Satisfactory, A Matter of Trust and Bakerloo Line (also co-authored with Sharon Stein).
