About T. A. Novak

The author is a 72-year-old retiree (since the end of 1997). He is a married father of four grown children, has one stepson, eight grandchildren, five great grandchildren and counting. His wife of 22 years, Edie, is his partner, friend, biggest fan and critic. Her subtle suggestions started the long journey that resulted in his first novel, Among the Tin Cans and Broken Glass. That novel was based on the experiences he had as a police officer in Detroit during the 1960s.

The author took up bird dogs and bird hunting in 1966. This interest led him to his second book, Good Ones and Scallywags. This is not a dog training book, but a compilation of stories based on the dogs, birds and people he’s met over the years—some tales are serious, some humorous, and all true.

While enjoying winters in the Southwest U.S. the author joined a writer’s group in Lake Havasu City, Arizona and while fulfilling his assignments with the group more police-type adventures evolved. The result is his newly released novel, Alley Justice.
