Scott Wells was born in Dallas, Texas, in 1973, and grew up with a fascination with computer games, programming, and the writings of Douglas Adams, author of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, whose distinct, quirky humor inspired the young writer to pen his first short story, My LIfe as a Pencil.
One night in his early college days, he had a dream where he and his brother opened Scott's closet door and found a portal that eventually lead to Germany, where they proceeded to call their parents and inform them of their new locale. Their parents were...surprised.
This dream sparked him to write what was eventually to become his first novel, The Merxyn Experiment, a unique science fiction story self-published in 2001. In December of 2011, he released at as an e-novel. His new novel, Defenders of Humanity, is scheduled to be released sometime in 2012 for all major e-readers.
He currently resides in Dallas, Texas, and when he isn't writing or doing software engineering to put food on the table (and the doggie bowl), you can usually find him watching a movie (either at home or at the movie theater), playing a video game, or just chilling with his family and friends.
