Stephan Silva is a pharmacist, physician, and foot surgeon who grew up in Westchester County, New York. He earned an undergraduate degree from St. John’s University in pharmacy and a doctorate from New York College of Podiatric Medicine. He is board certified in podiatric medicine and surgery, as well as advanced wound care.
In addition to being a writer, Stephan owns and operates a wound care clinic in Boca Raton, Florida. He has been married to his wife, Debra, for thirty years. They have three children and a schnauzer. When not writing or practicing the healing arts, he enjoys martial arts like aikido as well as tennis and racquetball. His true passion is international travel and spending time with his cousins in Piacenza, Italy.
Stephan’s debut novel, Heaven Cries, is a fictionalized account of his great uncle Artemio Silva and his exploits in the Italian Royal Air Force during World War II and subsequent internment under Nazi occupation. It is a story of redemption and the road back from perdition—how average people tried to survive in the crucible of war.
