Steph Shuff was born and raised in Jupiter, Florida, a small ocean-side town in Southeast Florida. She attended college at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs and the Environment.
Steph has worked in a variety of industries and roles - however, one thing remains a constant throughout her professional and personal life: Steph is a storyteller.
Beyond her deep love of writing and producing, Steph is a certified SCUBA diver, an experienced rock climber, and an avid traveler. If she were escaping a house fire, Steph would save her journals, her pets, her plants, and her essential oils. She is passionate about finding the world's best beach sand and the perfect bowl of ramen.
In her blog, "Research for my Novel," Steph recounts the true adventures of her life and career, all done in the name
of good storytelling.
