About Stephen

Stephen B. Bagley's latest book is Tales from Bethlehem. In these funny and touching tales, you’ll meet a stable boy, a serving girl, an honest spy, an astounding clerk, an empty innkeeper, a mighty ship of the desert, and many others as they share their amazing Tales from Bethlehem.

He wrote Floozy and Other Stories, a collection of his published humorous essays. Another collection of new material, Floozy Comes Back, is planned for 2017 or as soon as the reading public can bear it.

He also wrote Murder by Dewey Decimal and Murder by the Acre, both in the Measurements of Murder Mystery™ series. The third in the series, Murder by the Mile, will be published in 2017.

He co-wrote Undying, a collection of dark poetry with fantastic themes, with author Gail Henderson. It was published in 2015.  EndlesS, the first collection of his poetry, was published in 2008. His poetry, according to one contest judge, reveals a "sensitive and sensual way of looking at the world." He thinks the judge was maybe saying the poetry was naughty, but he's not sure.

He also wrote the full-length plays Murder at the Witch's Cottage and Two Writers in the Hands of an Angry God and co-wrote Turnabout. He coauthored two one-act plays (“Hogwild” and “There’s a Body in The Closet”) that were published by Dramatic Publishing Company. These are rather good if he does say so himself and, trust us, he does.

His poetry, articles, and essays have appeared in Writer’s Digest, Blackbirds Third Flight, Blackbirds Second Flight, Blackbirds First Flight, ByLine Magazine, Nautilus Magazine, Pontotoc County Chronicles, Your Country Music Magazine, Tulsa World OKMagazine, various newspapers, and other print and online publications.

He graduated from Oklahoma State University (GO POKES!) and lives happily in Oklahoma. He is a member of Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc.
