J. Todd Scott was born in rural Kentucky and attended college and law school in Virginia, where he set aside an early ambition to write to pursue a career as a federal agent. His assignments have taken him all over the U.S and the world, but a badge and gun never replaced his passion for books and writing. He now resides in the American Southwest, and when he’s not hunting down very bad men, he’s hard at work on his next book.

His debut novel, THE FAR EMPTY, was published June 2016 by Penguin Random House – G.P. Putnam’s Sons.

His next book, HIGH WHITE SUN, will be released March 2018.

He is represented by CK Webber of the Fuse Literary Agency, and can be hunted down at JTODDSCOTT.COM.

I've been a federal agent for over twenty years, and nearly half of them have been spent on the border (I've gone away and come back a couple of times). The great thing is I've come to truly love the area, and I hope some of that comes through in The Far Empty and the upcoming books. JTS(less)

I do know one "love story" that I really like -- or I should say I like the dramatic tension in it -- and that's the one between Deckard and Rachel in "Blade Runner." There's also some great Vangelis music that accompanies it.

A cop-out answer, but there it is all the same!(less)

Two years ago, when THE FAR EMPTY released, I took the day off work……and sat in front of my computer, waiting for…something…to happen. Of course, nothing did: no balloons, no carnivals, no fireworks. It was one of the most momentous days in my life, and when all was said and done, it felt very…average.

Today, as HIGH WHITE SUN hits shelves (hopefully your shelf, in your house), I’ll be at work....

“it. I once read in some fantasy book about a phylactery, a place or an object where a creature can hide its soul, protecting it from death. As long as the phylactery is safe, the creature can never truly die. It lives on, rising again and again.”
J. Todd Scott, The Far Empty
