about the author


Steve Cox was born in 1953 and grew up in Massachusetts. His undergraduate and graduate degrees are from the University of New Hampshire. His love of travel, assisted by his career in high tech, brought him all over the world. At age 50 while married with a son and daughter in college, his life was interrupted by a diagnosis of brain cancer. That event changed his life forever. After surviving a brain tumor and the struggle to recover from surgery, his wife was also diagnosed with brain cancer. Her ordeal ended tragically.


At age 60, Steve published his first book. No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service is a true and entertaining adventure story. Readers are brought back to a time of youth and naivety when caution was ignored and careless disregard was fueled by a youthful spirit and adrenaline.


Steve's second book, If You Love Me, Take Me Now is a true and heart-breaking love story. It is also an insider's view of what it's like to be diagnosed with a deadly disease. The story chronicles his life through treatment and its aftermath. Doctors, nurses, caregivers and patients will learn from this book. Others will feel the strength and love of a husband and wife who are dedicate to their family and to each other. It is a book you won't be able to put down and a story you may never forget.
