About Me

Steven L. Lovett is a life-long fan of crackling fires, cold winds in autumn, stacks of hand-cut firewood, stormy-grey oceans, and the kinds of stories which keep all of us looking for magic in quiet places.

Steven is an admiring student of T.H. White, a sentimentalist of C.S. Lewis, and an unabashed fan of J.R.R. Tolkien. (He says he'll have "made it" as a novelist when everyone begins referring to him as S.L. Lovett.) A professor by day and a writer by night (or by weekends or any other free time), Steven has previously published three nonfiction books and several scholarly journal articles, and possesses a trove of waiting-to-be-published short stories and one novella (a Poe-esque tale).

Steven lives with his wife, their daughter, and far too many dogs on a quiet, wooded street in a small town in eastern Kansas.

A Place With Dragons is Steven's debut novel and the first of a series about Telluric Grand, The City With Seven Gates

In a secret world of giants, Wisps, War Crows, and ancient magic, Nicolas Bennett discovers he is the heir to the throne of a fantastical Kingdom. Nicolas is prophesied to become one of the greatest of all Dragon Nightfalls—but only if he can kill the recently awakened Overlord Dragon, Arnyek Tolvaj. Known as the Shadow Thief, Arnyek Tolvaj is the doom of Telluric Grand and a looming threat to Relic, the City with Seven Gates. Joined by three new friends, Nicolas sets out on a dangerous journey, determined to accomplish the impossible. And when he finally comes face to face with the Shadow Thief, Nicolas truly understands the private agony of what it means to be a savior.
