Welcome to my page! Make yourself at home. The fridge is over to the right, just past the Twitter feed. The bar and Xbox are upstairs, along with blog and Facebook links. The library is below. Mind the cats–they pounce.
I write, I teach, I play the harp. So far I’ve turned out the Books of Blood and Iron, the Clockwork Empire, the Silent Empire, Writing the Paranormal Novel, and a bunch of media, romance, and science fiction and fantasy novels. Have a look around and see what you can find. We don’t lock the doors.
Steven Harper Piziks was born with a name that no one can reliably spell or pronounce, so he often writes under the pen name Steven Harper. He lives in Michigan with his family. When not at the keyboard, he plays the folk harp, fiddles with video games, and pretends he doesn’t talk to the household cats. In the past, he’s held jobs as a reporter, theater producer, secretary, and substitute teacher. He maintains that the most interesting thing about him is that he writes books.
Steven is the creator of The Silent Empire series, the Clockwork Empire steampunk series, and the Books of Blood and Iron series for Roc Books. All four Silent Empire novels were finalists for the Spectrum Award, a first! You can find him elsewhere on-line by clicking on the SOCIAL MEDIA tab at the top of this page.
