It’s All About Me

Scott has been telling stories his whole life. Sometimes they're even true!

Scott Harpole was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and moved to Troy when his dad became the pastor. His family always valued telling stories and especially retelling funny events. His storytelling changed when he created bedtime stories for his four children. Scott, and the love of his life, his wife Jenn, have a girl and three boys (Taylor, Ross, Grant, and Max). They are all adults and no longer require stories, however, there are two grandchildren so there’s still a need for more stories from Papa Scott.

Scott, Jenn, and, Bentley, (the blue Great Dane) live in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Here’s the family, while watching the movie Signs. The actors made tinfoil hats to keep the aliens from reading their thoughts, so it only made sense for all of us to do the same thing.

Scott’s greatest joy is to have made a difference with his books; to have had some positive impact, to bring a little more light to the minds of his readers, and give them a peaceful end to their days.

Here’s Scott surrounded by children, telling stories.

The answer to the question of why Scott writes.

“My Author Why…

I write because I want to see a result. My focus is on the end-user, my reader, their smile, or aha moment. I am intensely driven by my reader’s reaction to what I have written. I do not write because I can, or because I’m good at it, or because it pays well, or even because it gives me freedom; although those are incentives. I write because I want to connect with and affect every reader! Now that makes me smile.”
