A Refuge of Inspiration
Hello. My name is Steven S. Foster. Welcome to Spirit of an Eagle.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve been inspired by the majesty of seeing a bald eagle in flight. To me, this magnificent bird is a symbol of strength, courage, and freedom. Deeply moved, I like to write about people who struggle with challenges and learn to overcome their difficulties positively.
As a result, my characters will spiritually rise on wings like eagles and live freely as human beings. From there, I aim to inspire my readers with hope, renewal, and purpose.
My First Novel
Spirit of an Eagle. This is a heartfelt novel about Army Medic Anthony Lorenzo after he returned home from the Vietnam War in 1969. Haunted by horrific combat memories and the death of his wife, he set out on a journey into an unforgiving wilderness. With the guidance of an eagle and a strange mountain man, Lorenzo searches for meaning and a second chance to live fully again.
It will inspire and uplift anyone who struggles to overcome their sorrows. This profoundly moving story is mixed with lively characters filled with love, romance, friendship, and humor. It's the perfect gift for a veteran adjusting back into civilian life. It's great for anyone who enjoys a positive approach to life.
My Second Novel
Summer Passage of '66 is a coming-of-age story about an 18-year-old's journey to manhood. During his wild adventures, he meets a mysterious girl. Intrigued by her exotic features, Woody gets caught up trying to protect her from a violent stranger. In this fast-paced drama, he worries about being drafted as the Vietnam War rages on. Knowing his 19th birthday is just around the corner, he is confronted with a decision that could drastically change his life.

My Third Novel
Hawaii's Last Beekeeper is a fast-paced sci-fi drama about pollinating insects dying off worldwide. Only one man holds the secrets to saving honeybees from extinction. Now the renowned entomologist/ beekeeper has disappeared. He must be found before it's too late. Racing against deadly forces, his friend Colin MacLeod begins a treacherous search to locate him throughout the Hawaiian islands.
Meanwhile, a shadowy figure dogs his tail. In gripping twists and turns, Colin discovers the truth. This will change the fragile planet forever.

My Short Story, War Butterfly
On the Hawaii Writer's Guild website, you can also read War Butterfly in the online Literary Review, Lattitudes. This haunting story came to me in a late-night dream. Deeply moved, I woke in tears and wrote my first draft feverishly before dawn. It takes place during the Civil War between two wounded and thirsty soldiers--one from the Union, the other a Reb. They must step out in the open and take water from a pond to survive. But if they try for it, they could be shot down. Their only hope is a little girl who chases after butterflies. Will she quench their thirst?

Steven S. Foster
I yearned to be a writer when I was honorably discharged from the Air Force. So, I worked as a welder at night to support my family and continue my education. After another four years, I earned a BA degree in communications. This led to a stint in a smoke-filled newspaper office during the 1970s. Later, I served as a writer at a nonprofit organization and published numerous magazine articles.
After that, I settled into a career in customer service, where I fine-tuned the art of studying people and behavior. Since I retired, I wrote a novel, Spirit of an Eagle, and published it.
I also wrote two other novels. They are Summer Passage of '66 and Hawaii's Last Beekeeper. All three books are available in
paperback and e-book on Amazon.
