Noah Hawkes the 9th of 10 children, was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1982. His father Thomas was a world-renowned surgeon and his mother Ethel was an amazing homemaker. Born into a military family, Noah grew up traveling the world. At a young age, Noah was fascinated with science, culture and how the world worked. His teachers would often say he was lost in a world of his own imagination. By the age of 12, Noah was writing short stories he called, Captains Logs that recounted the daily adventures of a Starship captain lost in space. Noah loves fantasy books and has been inspired by the worlds created by Tolkien, Sanderson, Goodkind, and Card. Noah is always reading a new fantasy series.
In 1997 Noah's life was rocked by the loss of his father and later his older brother. He struggled with his mother and family to move on with their lives and live with tremendous loss and heartbreak. Noah developed a special relationship with his mother, and she continues to be one of his biggest supporters and sources of inspiration for him to this day.
Noah married his beautiful wife and the love of his life in 2003. They have 3 boys, Elijah, Ethan, and Ender. After finishing his MBA in 2012, he started planning his first novel. It wasn't until 2014 when a good friend and fellow author Stephen Thorpe shared his completed manuscript for review, that Noah took on the challenge and began writing Drakin: The Scala Series Book 1. Since then Noah has found a passion for writing and continues planning and writing his stories on a daily basis.
