Stephen J. Semones

Best-selling author and founder of Sir Reel Films, Stephen J. Semones began writing at an early age to satisfy his compulsion to tell stories. Since then, he has gone on to develop some of the most ambitious projects in independent film, including the short-feature, The Wraith: Eyes of Judgment, and the web-series, Nothing’s at Stake.

Semi-retired from film, Stephen decided to focus on writing. His candid how-to-book on filmmaking, Beyond the Lens: A Beginner’s Guide to Filmmaking, hit the best-seller list five times and further established him as a formidable force in both the film and literary worlds. Since then, Stephen put his focus on fiction and returned to his comic-book forte with the highly anticipated novel, The Wraith: Crossfire. His other fiction works include contributing three short stories to the horror and science fiction compilation Timeless Requiem from Millenia Press. Early in 2014, Stephen released his highly-anticipated superhero novel series, Gloom, to rave reviews and critical acclaim. The book was so popular, the proposed 2015 release for the second installment, Gloom: Fog of War, was pushed to a summer 2014 release to satisfy fans.

Stephen currently resides in Tennessee with his beautiful wife and their four children.
