Tori Scott


Best Selling and award-winning author Tori Scott has been writing for 12 years and is a former Golden Heart finalist in the prestigious RWA writing contest. She won a Colorado Gold contest, was a finalist in numerous other contests, and lists several publications among her accomplishments, including a featured Christmas story in Woman's World magazine.

She's naturally curious about everything, which has led her to change careers often. As soon as she's learned all she can about one occupation, she's ready for the next. She's been a high school English and history teacher, a school principal, a child care director, a car salesman, a portrait consultant, and an insurance salesman.

Tori believes in love. She met her husband, Tony, on her first day of college at the age of 17 and knew the moment she met him that he was the one she was supposed to marry. She did, and they now live on 5 acres in the country with their dog Blue. They have 4 grown children and 5 grandchildren spread from Massachusetts to southern California.

Tori loves reading, swimming, photography, traveling, and especially writing. She sets most of her books in Texas because she was born in West Texas, raised in North Texas, and now lives in East Texas. She's spent the last five years traveling the entire state for work, and even taught Texas history for a few years. She tries to write what she knows...and loves.

A Notice To My Readers: Four Houses is not one of my books.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desk is a big, old cherry executive desk that I fell in love with at a garage sale and talked hubby into lugging it home for me. Right now it's covered in papers, sticky notes, computer paraphernalia, vitamin bottles, and pictures. It might look like chaos, but I know where everything is.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Lubbock, Texas but most of my memories center around Lynn County, Texas, just south of Lubbock. It's where my grandparents lived, where my mom and dad grew up, where I played with all my cousins and learned the meaning of hard work, family, and friendship. I set my first series in this area that I renamed Morris Springs for the books. We left west Texas when I was six to live in different parts of the US for the next several years, but I was always happiest back home. The values I learned there are major themes in most of my books.
