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.

"Really enjoyed this book!

I prefer to travel by car and I really enjoy nature and outdoors, so I felt at home with Tony's account. My husband and I have experienced some of the same adventures that they did, so I could relate to much of the narrative." Read more of this review »

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”
