Ernest Heau P’12 and his son, Noah Heau ’12, are the authors of a novel-length fantasy adventure for young teens called The Lost Rubies of Fennwann. Ernest and Noah wrote the book together while Noah was in middle and high school.
The father and son self-published the 268-page book through iUniverse, Inc. in 2009.
According to the website, “Co-authors Ernest and Noah Heau are father and son. Their story-telling career began when Noah was 4, when they made up stories on the spot. Over the years they created many hand-written and hand-illustrated stories. The Lost Rubies of Fennwann is their first collaboration on a novel-length fantasy adventure. Ernest is a retired software engineer, and an editor of book on Buddhism. Noah graduated from the Waldorf School of Garden City, New York. He attends Wesleyan University in Connecticut. He plays the cello, keeps a journal, and is ‘interested in things surreal and ethereal.'”
