An indie author/entrepreneur, Michael Allan Scott was born and raised at the edge of the high desert in Kingman, Arizona. He resides in Scottsdale with his wife, Cynthia and their rescue Doberman, Roxie. When asked about time spent in solitary confinement in a Maricopa felony block, Scott said, “Some things are better left a mystery.” Yet he admits to drawing on life’s darker experiences to create his genre-bending psychic detective series, the Lance Underphal Mysteries. In addition to writing a new breed of supernatural mystery/thrillers and other works of speculative fiction, his interests include music, photography, art, scuba diving, and auto racing.

Since its conception, its cross-genre premise morphed into a very different animal. It delves into the Dark Web, hacking, terrorism, and the CIA, while still heavily relying on its paranormal murder mystery roots. With the first draft complete, I’m roughly a quarter of the way through the first edit.
