Scott Berry, Sr


Scott Berry is a writer, educator, and missionary. While much of his work is done as a ghostwriter, he sometimes takes time to write his own stories or poems. His ghostwriting work includes several science fiction/fantasy novels, full-length movie scripts, scripts for animated children's television programs, children's plays, and even some full length musicals.Scott lives near Albuquerque, New Mexico, with his wife, Zella, and their new dog, Tanner. Shortly after getting Tanner from a local pet rescue shelter, Scott decided to write some simple stories about their new terrier. He honestly didn't expect the stories to have such an immediate mass appeal. Because of the interest in the "Tanner the Tenacious Terrier" series, Scott is planning on writing several more of the popular tales.

Scott is also a missionary to the Philippines province of Bohol. He had visited Bohol several years ago and fell in love with the people and the culture -- and especially the children. One of his biggest concerns there is that over half of the children are unable to go to school because they don't have basic school supplies. Scott has taken on the project of providing backpacks, pencils, paper, shoes, and uniforms. In 2013, he gave out enough supplies to send 250 children to school His goal for 2014 is 800 children.

  • The Phoenix Cycle: Would You? on Dec. 26, 2013

    Although the post-apocalyptic setting is familiar, The Phoenix Cycle offers an interesting twist. The idea makes turning 18 much more important than just getting to move out of the house.
  • Nathan's First Day of Preschool on Dec. 26, 2013

    A nice little story about the first day of preschool. I think most children (and their parents) can relate to this experience. This would be a good story to read to a preschooler before that ominous first day!
