Steve Newlin is a televangelist in "The Southern Vampire Mysteries". First introduced in the second book of the series, Living Dead in Dallas, Steve Newlin was the director and spiritual leader of The Fellowship of the Sun (FotS), an anti-vampire church located in the town of Dallas, Texas.
Steve is described as being tall and lanky with hazy blue eyes and dark brown hair.
The FotS and Steve are directly linked to Farrell's (Stan Davis's nest brother) disappearance. When Sookie goes to investigate, she is captured by the Newlins and held in the basement of the FotS church. The Newlins plan to hold a ceremony in which the vampire Farrell will be forced to “meet the sun”, which will cause him to burst into flame and die. They plan to tie Sookie to him so she will burn as well, but Sookie escapes and foils their plans.
Sookie meets Steve again in Club Dead, where he and a FotS fanatic try to stake a vampire in a Mississippi vampire bar. Sookie intervenes and Steve escapes.
