Dr. Steve Castle graduated from the University of Arizona in 1977, where he played quarterback on scholarship, pledged Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and received his Bachelors of Science in Public Administration. In 1980, he earned a Juris Doctorate degree from Western State University College of Law in San Diego and immediately went to work in the private sector, where he established himself as an innovative businessperson and entrepreneur. Eight years later, Steve experienced his greatest stroke of luck when he met and married Ellen, the enduring love of his life. Inspired by her encouragement to follow his passion, Steve acquired a secondary teaching credential at the age of thirty-four and abruptly changed vocations to become a high school Social Science Instructor and Varsity Football Coach in Southern California. After moving to Tennessee because of Ellen’s corporate job transfer, Steve enhanced his new career choice by earning a Master’s of Science degree in Educational Administration from the University of Memphis. A few years later, another family related move created an opportunity for Steve to add to his instructional experiences by becoming an Adjunct Professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Florida State College, and Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, Florida. Dr. Castle is now sixty-four and honorably serving in his 30th year in public education, where he distinguishes himself as a consistently passionate educator and longtime civic advocate for the preservation of America’s fundamental founding principles. In fact, it was Steve’s sensitivity to the incremental yet perceptible demise of the American Dream along with an acute awareness of the palpable disintegration of our nation’s unique civilization that provided the impetus for writing this rationally based and thought-provoking non-fiction expose; Common Sense for America; In Crisis. As a logical result of this literary effort, Dr. Castle hopes that all freedom loving Americans who cherish their liberty will lawfully, peacefully, and proactively seek to reacquire their glorious birthright from the clutches of an institutionalized and crony-capitalistic governmental and corporate plutocracy that has long-since forgotten the wants and needs of the general electorate. On a personal note, the Castles have two children; Gracie, a Cultural Anthropology and Sociology graduate from Florida Atlantic University who lives and works in Delray Beach, Florida and Robert, an Accounting graduate from Florida State University, where he is currently seeking his Master’s degree before sitting for the CPA exam. Steve and Ellen have been happily married for over thirty years and currently reside in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, where they care for Steve’s mother and their two adorable Schnoodles, Snickers and Baby Ruth.
