Steven Forman was born in the Boston area in 1942 and graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1963. He then started his own seafood marketing company in 1970. Forman has always had a passion for writing but he did not publish his first book until 2009.
Forman devoted most of his adult life to building a one-man company into an international, multi million-dollar enterprise from the ground floors of Boston’s Haymarket square to the grounds of the emperor’s palace in Tokyo. He has a talent of making small ideas grow into gigantic successes and he has played a part in creating entirely new industries that remain viable and successful today.
In 1992 he and his wife Barbara left the cold New England winters for the warmth of Boca Raton, Florida and have been enjoying the best of both worlds ever since. The unique, contrasting life styles of Boston and Boca inspired him to write “Boca Knights”, which is a book he has been wanting to write for many years. The sequel, “Boca Mournings” is Forman’s most recent novel published in 2010.
Forman and his wife recently became Florida residents, but they still divide their time between their two favorite cities. Their daughter Jana lives in Boca with her husband Mark and they have two beautiful grandchildren, Taylor and Bradley. Forman’s son David, his wife Stacie and their new son Tyler live in Massachusetts with their three rescued cats and one rescued dog. David and Stacie founded a pet food company dedicated to helping domesticated animals with their diets.
Forman learned that the business and literary worlds have a lot in common; create a good product, market it to the public and hope that numerous consumers buy the product. The main difference he experienced between his two careers is the public’s perception. “Over the years I’ve sold millions and millions of pounds of seafood but no one has ever asked me to sign a piece of fish. Write a good book, however and suddenly a lot of people want my signature on something besides a check.” says Forman.

”I have noticed something strange lately. I have never seen a book in which a murder takes place in Deerfield Beach or in Delray or in Pompano or in Plantation. But I have seen lots of books in which a murder takes place in Boca Raton. I have no idea why that is. The latest in the series of detective stories set in Boca is Boca Knights by Steven M. Forman. It is a fast moving, suspense full story, and I recommend it to you if you are a detective story buff.... Read Review

”With his first-ever book, author Steve Forman has created a “monster.” I mean that in a very positive sense: In Eddie Perlmutter --- a pugnacious, highly decorated ex-cop from Boston who “retires” to Boca Raton to avoid the bitter cold winters that cripple the arthritic knees broken by run-ins with Boston’s criminal element --- Forman has come up with a literary character almost certain to end up on the motion picture screen…and Al Pacino would be perfect for the part...

But he's about to discover that warmer doesn't mean safer, and a man with a strong sense of justice can't ever really retire... Read Review
