Local Author-Steve LeBel
Hackley Public Library, Tuesday, November 25 at 6pm
Join us as we welcome local author Steve LeBel, who will talk about his new book, The Universe Builders.

“We have all heard of the fabled perfect being, the Greek God. Well, how about a geek god? Named Bernie, yet. Fresh with his diploma from God School, determined but unsure, bright but without confidence, Bernie faces the challenge of building his own universe. If only it were that easy…
A fascinating tale of good vs. evil and a young hero on a journey of self-discovery in an original, humorous, fantastic wrapper.”

From Amazon reviewers:

“This book is fantasy at its best. Perfect escapism in the world of gods. I've always wondered how our solar system was created, and now I suspect Bernie my have had something to do with it.”

“Steve LeBel has done a wonderful job of bringing together a cast of characters who not only compliment each other, but bring out the reality and life of one another. With a clever writing style and a fascinating story, LeBel offers readers an incredible journey into a universe of originality and intrigue.”

About the author: Businessmen are serious people, right? Not always. Steve LeBel — hospital president, technology entrepreneur, algorithmic stock trader — is definitely not serious.
Not when he writes.
Whimsy overcomes him at the word processor. Whimsy is at the core of his novel, The Universe Builders, which he tells with a unique balance of seriousness, humor, and imagination.
LeBel lives in Muskegon, Michigan with his wife Marge, and Mindy and Dexter, their cats. When not writing, he is busy planning his next trip, cussing out the stock market, doing tech support for friends, or dreaming up new Universe Builder plots.
