Serge Stevens

The son of an itinerant rodeo worker who briefly toured with the Calgary Stampede, Serge Stevens was born in a small town outside of Manitoba, Canada. Along with his two brothers, Ike and Rollo, Serge was homeschooled by his mother, an achingly beautiful woman. Serge moved to Washington, D.C., at the age of 23, and for three frustrating years sought assignment with the U.S. diplomatic corps. Ultimately realizing that his Canadian citizenship was far too great an obstacle to his dream, he moved to New York City, where he spent years working on the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s Second Avenue subway, while moonlighting as a stringer for the local Pennysaver. Serge lost his wife, Olivia, several years ago, in Times Square.
