Thaddeus (or Ted to those who know him) has always been interested in fantasy and science fiction. Early on, when just starting high school, his avid reading grew into a desire to write. A desire which has turned into a life long pursuit.

When not reading or writing, he enjoys hiking in the mountains, landscape photography, and spending time with an overly intelligent, but wonderful horse.

He has degrees in Chemistry, Computer Information Systems, and Business Management and has held a handful of jobs: some in retail, some in healthcare, but primarily in the technology fields.

Thaddeus currently lives in Kansas with his wife and horse, but wishes there were more mountains visible on the horizon.

Campaign Log

FireI am not dead. Not yet. Or perhaps I have come back from death and I am a zombie. The last several weeks have felt like that


I have been working on renovating my house and that has really consumed most evenings and weekends. Flattening ceilings, painting ceilings, painting walls, preparing for someone to put in tile and replace the carpets… I spent ten evenings (and weekends) 12′ up...

Thaddeus Nowak Oh bother, I just bought another book and I'm in the middle of reading 4 others with a 3 ft stack I have not started sitting on the floor.

I am sure there is a 12 step program out there. Something about moving furniture, measuring wall space, picking colors, checking weight limits, and installing another book shelf...

You're welcome. Glad to have you on my list.

Susie Sexton thanks for the add!


Thaddeus Nowak One of those days where the wind is cool, but sitting in the sun is comfortably warm. Perfect to sit back with a good book.


Thaddeus Nowak Definitely deep into a Doctor Who kick, been re-watching many of my dvds.

Thaddeus Nowak If you are into maps and back story, added a couple items to my website yesterday.

New map showing parts north of Cothel, which will feature in the next book, Daughter's Justice, which is coming out during the first quarter this year:

And then some general back story about Stephenie's grandfathers: http://thaddeusnowak.com/history.html


Jennifer Thompson Thaddeus,
I am so happy to be able to finally write this and tell you that after four years of ups and downs, tears and milestones, THE SCENT OF A SOUL is ready for reading consumption! :-) It has been quite the journey, but well worth it. Please feel free to visit my blog at http://jenniferthompsonbooks.blogspot... to see if my book is a perfect fit for you, or you can find my book at Amazon.com. (I am working at getting the Kindle version up and running, but it might take a while.) Sharing this with you is a highlight for me; I hope you enjoy!
Jennifer


Thaddeus Nowak Been busy finishing the first draft of Daughter's Justice, so I have not been overly active on social media lately.

But I wanted to reminder everyone who is near Atchison, KS, on the 10th I will be doing a book signing for Mother's Curse at The Artist Box. Come up and get a copy and chat with me. I'll be there from 1100 to at least 1500.

Jennifer Thompson Thaddeus,
I am very happy to share with you that THE SCENT OF A SOUL book trailer is ready for viewers on my blog at http://jenniferthompsonbooks.blogspot.... I am also excited to let you know that there is a Giveaway for an ARC of THE SCENT OF A SOUL hosted by Rafflecopter being conducted on my blog as well. Please come and view the trailer and enter to win an ARC of my book. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Jennifer


Thaddeus Nowak Lining up another book signing in Nov, this one in Atchison Kansas. Plus I will be at KC Ren Fest again this coming weekend, Sunday for sure, possibly some on Saturday.

My recreational ready has fallen to short things of late. Starting to get withdrawal.


Jennifer Thompson Thaddeus, I wanted to thank all who might have voted and/or visited my blog to participate in some way with my book cover voting for THE SCENT OF A SOUL. The votes were cast, and I am excited to invite everyone back to view the winner at http://jenniferthompsonbooks.blogspot.... I hope to see you there.
Jennifer


Jennifer Thompson Thaddeus,
Thanks for adding me as a friend! It's always interesting to me to learn what others are reading and what they think and recommend. Looking foward to yours. Have a great one.
Jennifer


Thaddeus Nowak For those in KC, I'll be at the KC Ren Fest on Sat, 8 Sep. Come out and see me and enjoy Fest.

I've got my book there as well, shop #531.


Thaddeus Nowak So many things to do, so little time it seems. Running a few errands before going out to do the reading tonight. Hoping the rain stays away this evening.
