Toby Neal was raised on Kauai in Hawaii. She wrote and illustrated her first story at age 5. After initially majoring in journalism, she eventually settled on mental health as a career and loves her work, saying, “I’m endlessly fascinated with people’s stories.”

Toby credits her counseling background in adding depth to her characters–from the villains to Lei Texeira, the courageous and vulnerable heroine in the Lei Crime Series, to the wounds and psychological implications of the heroes of the Scorch Series.

“Everything has to do with everything else—you know that by now. So begin at the beginning, and it will lead to the end.”
Toby Neal, Blood Orchids

“There are always people talking about it. We’re dying. Suicide is a way to take control of that.”
Toby Neal, Twisted Vine

“The house was done in a classic island style, and Lei couldn’t help but like the wide, deep roofline that sheltered a porch that ran the length and breadth of the house. The lanai was dotted with Adirondack chairs in”
Toby Neal, Broken Ferns
