About Steve

After 38 years in the data networking industry, the last 32 owning my own company, I’ve transitioned to published author. My mission for writing and publishing the BRAXTON’S AMERICA trilogy is two-fold. One, I have a strong desire to bring awareness to the masses about the auto-immune disorder known as Type 1 diabetes. Second, I’d like to be a voice in helping our country get back on track so that we can all see ourselves as Americans and realize where we live is the best place on the planet. Let’s bring truth, morality, and civility back into our lives.


Book Two: The Journey To the Cure Continues

Our world suffers from numerous diseases. Two of which are Type 1 diabetes and U.S. cultural decline.

 In Book 1 of the BRAXTON’S AMERICA series, Jon Braxton captivated the nation with his wit, humor and uncanny ability to articulate commonsense solutions to our country’s most pressing problems. And he was rewarded with a new job.

In Book 2 of the trilogy, BRAXTON’S PLAN, Jon is also rewarded with access to a runway to make extraordinary things happen. The new President, and his very capable and badass First Lady, Angela Braxton, now get to the business of bringing their son, and the rest of the world’s Type 1 diabetes community, the long-awaited cure. 

Angela has a PLAN, and begins to execute it in the face of overwhelming opposition from political enemies and the dubious interests of Big Pharma. While Angela is preoccupied with the cure for T1D, Jon is busy with his plans for curing the nation’s cultural decline. 

In BRAXTON’S PLAN, the comedy, satire, and ridiculous memes move from Congress to the White House. And amid the humor, our country begins to find its footing, along with hope for the future that our best days are ahead of us.

Two Diseases – Type 1 Diabetes and U.S. Cultural Decay

One Cure – Jonathon Braxton


Book One: Watch Out Washington

In the spring of 2012 an unlikely transformational figure, by way of chance occurrences, breaches the perimeter of U.S. politics. Unencumbered by political ambition, devoid of greed and the lust for power, and fueled solely by a desire to advocate for a cure for the disease recently contracted by his son, Jonathon Braxton enters the arena. His ensuing four-year journey takes him from politically apathetic successful business entrepreneur to the height of political power. And along the way he transports both the Republican and Democrat parties to the brink of extinction. 

This inaugural book of the BRAXTON’S AMERICA series sets the apolitical Jonathon Braxton on a course with history. Against his nature, in support of his recently T1D diagnosed son, he decides to enter politics with a single purpose  – finding the cure for Type 1 diabetes. However, upon reaching Washington DC as a first term congressman, he realizes the unique problem solving approaches he successfully used in business were in desperate need by a country in steep decline.

 Our hero’s reluctant entry into U.S. politics is laden with comedy, satire, and a formula for better government. BRAXTON’S TURN is a lighthearted and humorous journey of a man determined to make a difference. In the summer of 2012, Type 1 diabetes and sensible U.S. political discourse seemed impossible, but they had not yet faced off with Jonathon Braxton.
