Becoming Published:

T.M. Novak
When I found out Kim Emerson at Master Koda Select Publishing was going to actually publish me I cried like a baby. There aren’t even words to express how happy I felt, and still feel. It’s definitely a dream come true. I don’t think I truly believed it would ever happen. I’ve been trying to break in for ten years. The funny thing is my husband was the one who lit the fire under me to try harder. He told me he would move us anywhere I wanted to live if I got published. He doesn’t want to move so I think even he thought it would never happen. He will never challenge me again! Needless to say, the flood gates are open now and the stories are spilling from my imagination. I am having the best time of my life.


The Abduction of Lilly Waters
By T.M. Novak
Beth never anticipated her life would end up like it did. The last beating she received at the hands of her boyfriend threw her over the edge. She had to escape him, so she fled taking her daughter Lilly with her. She
didn’t know where she’d go, but she didn’t care. All she could manage to think about was the safety of her unborn child and her daughter Lilly. 

The frequent stops the mother and daughter had to make were uneventful until Beth pulled into a Diner in Moore, Oklahoma where her daughter Lilly was taken by unseen hands.
Detective’s Daniel Prescott and Frank Martinez head the investigation trying relentlessly to solve the case before it’s too late. These days, when children are taken it’s a unified frenzy to find them. In this case, every lead turns up empty and every turn they take reveals a clue they couldn’t have anticipated. The detectives aren’t quite sure where to turn or who to trust; even the mother herself is a prime suspect. 

 The Abduction of Lilly Waters is a fast paced child abduction thriller that will leave you on the edge of your seat in anticipation until the end where you’ll discover the deepest and darkest secret waiting.


"It was a still kind of calm, the kind of quietness that can bring panic to a worried parent. The kind of hush you don't want to hear when a child is around or supposed to be around." ~T.M. Novak

"A scream pierced the darkness, meeting the relentless thunder with a competing force. It was like a battle of wills, each one trying to surpass the other. The more demanding was Beth's shattering voice, calling Lilly's name over and over....."  ~T.M. Novak

"Terror gripped Beth from deep within her soul, and suddenly her mind escaped her altogether. Tears spilled from her eyes and met the rain that soaked her grief stricken face."  ~T.M. Novak
