About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Scott Niven and I'm a North Carolina author. I primarily write fantasy and science fiction, but dip my toes in other genres when an idea hits me that I can't shake. I'm the author of the following three books:
I've been writing in one form or another for over 35 years. My short stories have appeared in various publications, including the literary journal Pembroke Magazine. I was also a finalist in the prestigious L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy running (two-time RunDisney Dopey finisher!), organizing a local Meetup group, floating around on cruise ships, and traveling anywhere and everywhere. I've visited 43 states, 21 national parks, and sadly, only 15 foreign countries.

When I grow up, I hope to become an astronaut. If that doesn't work out, my fallback dream is to make a living writing.

Here's where you can find me on the web:
