Born in Chicago Illinois, Steven Novak has spent the whole of his life creating. After attending The Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus Ohio for four years he moved to California where he married his wife and grade school teacher, Tamara. The pair have been together for nearly a decade. While working as a freelance illustrator and graphic artist, with occasional product and web design, he produced several successful blogs and began to slowly piece together the story that would eventually become "Forts." The first in a series of three, "Forts: Liars and Thieves" is an intensely personal piece of fantasy that intertwines aspects of horror and science fiction as well. Written as a trilogy the third in the series is due in late 2011. His work can be found online at www.novakillustration.com
Fortsby Mj Heiser (Editor)
Though the Prince of Ocha is dead, his father remains very much alive
Having survived their initial excursion into the land of Fillagrou, Tommy Jarvis and the children of the prophecy find themselves drawn into the war once more in a desperate attempt to rescue their old friends. This time however the stakes have been raised - this time there will be no coming back.
Though the Prince of Ocha is dead, his father remains very much alive and his father wants revenge. In order to save their friends the children are forced to meet the tyrant King of the Dark Army head on. Unfortunately the incredible powers they discovered on their first journey may not be enough.
Liars and Thieves in the sequel to Steven Novak's Fathers and Sons, and the second in a trilogy that follows an unlikely group of children turned heroes and their adventures in a world that has nothing in common with their own, against an army of war mongering creatures led by a tyrant king and a young prince that will stop at nothing to see them dead.
The Forts story continues in Forts: Endings and Beginnings

"It is a can't put down, not even for sleep, book about adventure, courage, violence, and laughter."- hippiesbeautyandbooksohmy
"You'll be deeply unsettled by the way this ends, I promise you that, and you'll be salivating, grunting, and groaning, and cursing Novak for not having released book 3 already."- MJ Heiser, Author of Canticle
"You feel the blows that are dealt to the characters, you become winded when they run for their lives, and you feel their sorrow and happiness with every turn of the page. He makes you care about these characters as if they were your own friends."- Ryan O'Neil, Author of Plain Old Kirby Carson
"I can't say that I like this book better, but that's because I honestly don't think that I could choose between the two. They go well together in the series, but I think that they could also standalone. There's enough info given in book two that you could read it on its own, but I appreciated it more, having already read Fathers and Sons."
"I love when I can see an author improve writing prowess from book to book."- Owlreviewabook
