How do, my name’s Steve. I write across a variety of media, including blogs, novels, poetry, stage and screen.

My debut novel  Heartsnare , a Yorkshire dark fantasy described as “Emmerdale meets anime”, was published by Lethe Press in 2016.

Folk have said some nice things about it:

Rarely does a story about monsters and unknown creatures blend a horrifying and unconventional world with verisimilitude. Many try, but most fall short in one area or the other, because it requires such grace to achieve.  Book One of Steven B. Williams’s creation of the Umbraverse, Heartsnare, accomplishes this feat and leaves you waiting in anticipation for Book Two.Damian Serbu for Lambda Literary

I was also chosen for the  Firm of Poets  spokenword poetry mentee scheme and performed at Unity Works in Wakefield in March. Called “sensitive”, “warm”, and “affecting”, I have performed throughout the Wakefield area and am working on my first collection. I am available for performances up and down the country.

I am the joint winner of the 2016 Black Horse Poets & Wakefield Word “Writer of the Year” award.

I am a featured writer on the story sharing site  Wattpad  where my work has over 27 thousand views.

“A baby boy is born, and the curse of Hellswood dawns.”

In the near future, I will also be releasing a series of prints of some of my work.
