A pseudonym of Steven Piziks


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!

A Different Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving this year, my brother Paul really wanted to have the feast at a restaurant, specifically Zehnder's in Frankenmuth, and include the family of his lady friend Becky. The rest of us were amenable, so Paul made the reservation. You would think I'd be saying, "Hey! A no-muss, no-fuss Thanksgiving!"

First of all, The Boys wouldn't be able to go. Max and Aran have to work, coul Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Steven Harper  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Not my job to judge, boy." Baba Yaga filled and lit the pipe again. "But I do observe that its difficult to escape familiar patterns. When you live your life with cruel words, you look for people to give them to you. When you escape and evil stepmother, you take an uncaring bride. When your father throws you out, you love someone who won't love you back. And to keep yourself in cruelty, you're willing to risk head and hands on the mayors side board. Keep the pattern going. Hm.”
Steven Harper, Clockwork Fairy Tales: A Collection of Steampunk Fables

“Grand gestures may be dramatic, but they're rarely practical.”
Steven Harper, The Doomsday Vault

“Finding Louisa in her drawing-room was like discovering a kitten in the cupboard--not necessarily unwelcome, but still startling.”
Steven Harper, The Doomsday Vault
