Steve Petkoff

Holly Street

Steve Petkoff has shared the early memories of his life that are captured in his book Holly Street with many friends and family members over the years. Now retired, Petkoff lives in Little Rock, Arkansas, with his wife and two cats. He stays busy volunteering, reading, and woodworking while also being active in his church. The trucking industry’s operations employed him for thirty-nine years of his career. He also did a year’s tour of duty in Vietnam in his mid-twenties. 

Holly Street depicts the stories of a young boy growing up in Helena, Arkansas, in the Delta during the 1940s and 1950s. The author grew up working on a bread truck and learned how to drive it by the age of eight while he was still taking full advantage of his youth. He was a witness to incest, drunks, and murder, and found Civil War relics in his yard, including a skeleton.
