Fascinated with both history and legends, Novik is a first-generation American raised on Polish fairy tales and stories of Baba Yaga.

She lives in New York City with husband and Hard Case Crime founder Charles Ardai and their daughter, Evidence, surrounded by an excessive number of purring computers.

She attended Phoenix Comicon 14 last year, but somehow we remained ignorant of the Momentous Occasion until after the fact.

That will not happen again!
