Scott Spotson is a novelist who excels in imagining scenes of intrigue and adventure within ordinary lives while daydreaming, then pulls together various plots to create a compelling story. He likes to invent "what if?" scenarios, for example, what if I could go back to my university days, and what would I do differently? What if I could switch bodies with friends I am jealous of, like the guy who sold his software for millions of dollars and does whatever he pleases? What if I had the power to create clones of myself to do my bidding? Scott then likes to mentally insert himself into these situations, then plot a way to "get out" back to reality. This is how "Life II" and "Seeking Dr. Magic" were born, within weeks of each other. He's still working on dreaming up a situation where he gets to smash a pie in the face of his boss, with no justification whatsoever - how to get out of that one? Scott loves to travel and is partial to the idea of spending extended vacation at ski resorts up in the mountains. You know, the one like in the James Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" where the view is breathtaking, there's an outdoors hot tub facing a pristine snow covered mountain, and one can warm up inside on a bear skin in front of a huge cobblestone fireplace, sitting on a circular wooden bench fitted with animal pelts and sipping at a mango and pineapple smoothie mixed with a touch of grenadine - okay, he's getting too carried away! Scott Spotson creates a wide variety of fiction, but what his works have in common is a sense of wonderment - about the relationships we value in our lives; about the world we live in. He has written "Life II," a time travel novel that follows a man's new path through life when, in the year 2013, he returns to 1987 as his 16-year-old self; "Seeking Dr. Magic," a novel that imagines what happens when a powerful wizard comes of age as a contemporary, charismatic young man and wreaks his havoc upon the world, which is yet unaware of his existence; "Delusional," in which a woman in love suddenly experiences hallucinations and resolve to track down her tormentor before it's too late; and "You Know You're Thin When...," a humour book using large single panel cartoons, for ages 12 and up. A new book, "The Four Kings," another wizard mischief book, will be published by October 2013.
