As the host of a radio morning show for most of his 30+ years in broadcasting, Scott Overton entertained and informed thousands of groggy people as they faced each new day. He brings those same skills and perspectives to his writing, which includes science fiction and fantasy, mainstream and thriller fiction, and even a children’s book.

Scott's debut novel Dead Air was first published by Scrivener Press. Read a sample chapter, watch the book trailer, and more here.

His short stories have been published in On Spec, Neo-opsis Science Fiction Magazine, AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review, the anthologies Tesseracts Sixteen: Parnassus Unbound, Doomology: The Dawning Of Disasters, Canadian Tales of the Fantastic and elsewhere.

Scott's a member of the Canadian Authors Association, SFCanada, and a past President of the Sudbury Writers Guild.

His passions include scuba diving and a couple of classic cars, in which he hopes to someday find enough story inspiration to make them tax deductible.

Scott's literary agent is Justin Bell at the Spectrum Literary Agency in New York.



I hesitate to add this because the site hasn't been updated in a long time and is, to say the least, quaint.

The Secret Wood is a children’s book I wrote some years ago. I decided to make it available free on the internet, as downloadable .pdf files for you to read to your kids, or my own recordings as mp3’s if you're not comfortable reading out loud.

It’s a deliberate throwback to an earlier time in children's literature, the era of A.A. Milne, P.L. Travers, and Lewis Carroll—a tale for children who love to have stories read to them.

I hope you’ll enjoy it. Let me know.
