Scott Toney

Biography

From the author: I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the son of a mathematician mother and basketball loving father, and so naturally my passion became writing!

It all began as a youth when I wrote tales to go with the computer game Oregon Trail, creating stories to go with Jimmie getting typhoid or Susie getting small pox. Oh the fun of younger days... but one must advance. From there I tackled poetry and received a $100 prize in High School for winning a poetry contest. In college I earned degrees in Journalism and Public Relations.

Later I married my wonderful wife, Laura, and we now have an amazing daughter that fills our lives with such joy! Just before I met Laura the idea came to me to write a Fantasy story based on the story of Noah's Ark in the Bible. It was a 'what if' tale centering on Maanta, a merboy who descends from people who, instead of drowning in the flood, adapted to be mer people. Because of Noah's age when he died in the Bible that also left things open for me to incorporate Noah in the book as well. Thus 'The Ark of Humanity' was born.

Since then I have been inspired by other things and have gone on to write Eden Legacy and Lazarus, Man. Eden Legacy is another Fantasy work and Lazarus, Man is the story of Lazarus of Bethany, told through tale and tribulation.

I've joined forces with other authors as a member of Breakwater Harbor Books and am enthusiastic about the worlds and stories to come!

My family is my most treasured achievement.

I don't just choose to write. Writing is a part of me.

Smashwords book reviews by Scott Toney

  • Susan & the Land Of Mach B’alif Part 1 on Feb. 12, 2013
    (no rating)
    This isn't really a review, because I havn't read the book yet, but COOL cover! :) It struck me when I signed on to Smashwords today.
  • The Messenger on May 17, 2013

    The Messenger, Sammael's Lost Memory {COMPLETE READ} This is such an exceptional read! The Messenger is the second book by Haig that that I have read. The first, The Wishing Place, was wonderful, but this... touching, stunning, well plotted and heart moving! The first thing you need to know is that The Messenger takes place in the 1960's when Martin Luther King Jr. is speaking to the masses, and the story revolves around these events. Haig has both touched my heart and spurred my mind. She has clearly done her research on Sammael and I see this as a very real interpretation of what he could be like. The Messenger is a strong stand-alone Christian Fiction work, and it makes me anxious for the work that will follow it, Glory, when it is released next month! If you like Christian books and have in interest in MLK, pick this up today! Oh and, before reading the book I would go to Wikipedia and search Sammael to get some idea of the character before heading in. I can't suggest this book enough.
  • Diary of the Gone on Oct. 11, 2013

    Amberlake's writing enthralls the reader. He creates concepts and worlds for his books which are both believable and fantastic, thrilling the mind as we read. I was a huge fan of Amberlake's debut release, The Beholder, and so as I picked up Diary of the Gone I was already anticipating an excellent read. I was well rewarded, and hauntingly rapt in Diary's pages. Here we find ourselves in the mind of a boy named Callum in Olden Cross, a town surrounded by misty swampland and the disappearances of his peers. Callum sees the dead. Are they calling to him? What are they searching for? What connection does he have to their ghostly forms? You will have to read to discover the secret past of Olden Cross and the unknown of this place. I began Diary of the Gone with the thought that I would read it over the month of October. I soon found I could not put the book down until I reached the end. A haunting work- well plotted and highly enjoyable. I sit in anticipation of Amberlake's next release.
