This memoir "Here Is A Steve--Volume 1" is the autobiography of a success story of a man by the name of Steven Paul Reise. This book was preceded by the book "From Hospital To High" Or "Here Is A Steve" A Story of Steven Reise--Plus Poetry Analysis And Poems By Steven Paul Reise. This vignette of a young Steven Reise's mind and a brief insight into the mature adult sixty-five year old Mr. Reise's viewpoints of July 3-8, 2023. This vignette went into production by Steve's publisher "BookBaby" on December 13, 2023 (which happens to have been Taylor Swift's thirty-fourth birthday). This book encapsulates the author, Steven Reise's: 1. Earliest Memories 2. Scrap Book Years Earliest Memories are simply the author's memories from childbirth to a young person. Scrap Book Years are collections of his Scholastic (Academic) and Athletic achievements up to and iincluding his Senior Year in high school. This series of books of the title "Here Is A Steve" also cover the following sections: 3. College Years 4. Disco Years 5. Dating 6. Soul Mate 7. Career 8. Dark Period 9. Present As I write this I may include a tenth (10.) Section entitled "The Down There". This book as I have stated, is not the end. It is just the official 1st Volume of which may eventually comprise 4 or 5 Volumes of Steven Paul Reise's life. Also as I had some forms of relationships with women from Russia; Ukraine; and to a lesser extent, most recently women from the former Soviet/Russia satellite country, Kazakhstan, I would like to write of my experiences with these interesting women. Finally, as a tribute to the only woman who truly loved me outside of my family, was my "1st", a beautiful mind, soul and body of my Sophomore and Junior (16-17 year old) high school girlfriend, "Mary", I intend to publish the poems she wrote to me as her inspiration. Note: She is not the reference I made as "Soulmate" in Section 6, above. As it happens "Soulmate" was a beautiful women with a twin sister, Charlotte. Soulmate's name was the same as my mother's name, Charline, although "Soulmate spelled it with an "e", Charlene. PS: I had sex with my brother's wife, although let me state that this was before my deceased brother and his wife, "Kathy", who was my Freshmen high school girlfriend and who I dated occasionally off and on for several years got to know one another, through me and began dating and eventually married. Steven Paul Reise never married and has no children or any family members to which he is in contact with. Steven Reise is living quietly in his deceased parent's home in South St. Louis County, Missouri at the age of 66 this day on February 23, 2024.
