Scott Terry


A freelance writer, Terry has written warm and fuzzy gardening stories for the San Francisco Chronicle Home & Garden section. In Cowboys, Armageddon, and The Truth, he has produced a gritty and poignant autobiography of an innocent boy escaping an abusive and fanatical childhood.

Scott Terry was raised as a devout Jehovah’s Witness. He spent his childhood praying for Armageddon to come and asking God to heal him of his homosexual thoughts. By adulthood, he had escaped the Witness religion and no longer believed in an upcoming apocalypse. Indeed, as a gay man, he had become a real cowboy and was riding bulls in the rodeo. He then attended college to develop into the successful man he is now.

Scott Terry is an urban farmer, a watercolorist, an installation artist and a successful businessman. He lives in Northern California.
