E.M. Havens
Who is E.M. Havens? I’m a lot of things. The word that seems to define me most at the moment is mom.
It can be all consuming. Not only am I a mom of three (one of them is a teenager…pity me), but I also
home-school (pity me more). I share this awesome responsibility with the love of my life, best friend,
and soul-mate husband.

Add to that, the twenty-five chickens, twelve turkeys, ten guineas, nine pigs, three barn cats, two
Great Pyrenees guardian dogs, a Chihuahua, a house cat, and a goose, it makes for one crazy, full, and
certainly entertaining life.

Somewhere in there I find the time to write. I started out young writing poems, then moved on to
songs. I actually have a Bachelor in Music with a secondary in Science because I can’t stand English. Yes,
the writer hates English. I like to read the story for the experience of reading the story, not to nitpick
each letter and comma. But I digress.

I eventually found blogging and really enjoyed sharing my life that way. When an unfortunate turn of
events separated me from my music equipment, I decided to use my overactive imagination, my love
of reading, and my new found hobby, prose writing, to release some of my creative energy. I wrote my
first novel and loved the experience. Fate War: Alliance is actually the second novel I wrote and the first
to be published. Now I’m working on my third and several sequels to Fate War!

So that’s pretty much me, sitting in the Arbuckle Mountains of Oklahoma, reading, writing, collecting
eggs from the coop, and being a schoolmarm. It’s a pretty great life.

Review by Mallory Heart Reviews:

Review of Fate War: Alliance
5 stars

It’s not often I encounter fantasy interwoven with my beloved subgenre Steampunk, but here it is, and it works amazingly well. Crown Prince Cole of the Kingdom of Arborea is a rather headstrong, iconoclastic individual, who much prefers to do his own bidding, which is NOT to ascend to the throne. He and his father King Arnold at totally and always at cross-purposes. Cole certainly does not wish to wed unseen, simply because his Kingdom and the Island of Perspicia should be united. In this case, at this time, it is not so much simply politics, as it is necessity: the Fate Army advances. The Arboreal Lands need the mechanistic provenance of Perspicia, and to further that aim, Prince Cole and Lady Samantha will now marry—sight unseen.

Samantha, too, has long been schooled in the knowledge of her destiny. Running away, or trying to, didn’t solve the individualistic idealism which kept her chafing at the reins of the confinements of “should, ought to, must” common to noble and royal families. Now comes the momentous event; will it happen, or will Cole and Samantha refuse, and let both lands fall to the Fate Army?

Kudos to author E. M. Havens for interweaving disparate genres and making it work, and work well; and leaving readers craving for a sequel.
