About Scott Toney

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.

What a wonderful book. I've read all of Scott's books and this one will stay with me for many years as it is so heart warming. I feel as if I am standing there with John listening and feeling the love of Jesus. I didn't want it to end. It brought the bible to life in a way I never felt before. A closeness to Jesus so much deeper then I thought possible. Thank you Scott.

Review by: Claire Stibbe on Oct. 01, 2014 :
I read The Last Supper: John with a tear in my eye. After such a beautiful dedication not only to our Father in Heaven for His son’s sacrifice but also for the knowledge that we are His children and co-heirs in the Kingdom. What a celebration it will be on that day when we sit next to our brothers and sisters and those we loved in life.

I’ve always enjoyed Toney’s books. He breathes life into his characters and all of a sudden we see the disciples as they once were. Simple men living in a time and place most of us cannot imagine. To communicate a sense of that era accurately takes real talent. Sometimes I sit and wonder what they all looked like, what they ate. After reading this, I can see John as enthusiastic and emotional. I see Peter as a passionate man, tumbling over his bravado without really knowing how hard it would be. And Judas? Did he have an inkling of the tragedy he would bring on himself?

Toney conveys a frightening time for the disciples. Whatever they saw, whatever they felt, they knew Jesus was not of this earth - to be in His presence is not like being in the presence of any other man. We understand the pain of parting, of losing a friend. But what we can’t understand is how ‘they’ must have felt. Here we see a sampling of that confusion and fear, skillfully and modestly described. We can finally see those final hours through the eyes of one man.
