Scott Perkins was born and raised in rural Missouri, dreaming about turning his grandfather’s tractors into giant robots and reading and absorbing the sort of classic science fiction and fantasy that was a little bit ridiculous, and a whole lot hopeful about the potential of human-kind. His debut novel HOWARD CARTER SAVES THE WORLD is the result of that youth among books, robots, and tractor exhaust fumes.
Scott is most assuredly not a mad scientist living on a secret island fortress somewhere in the vicinity of Seattle, Washington with his wife and assorted felines (which most assuredly do not have wings, though it’s not for lack of asking). As far as we know, he’s a writer, sculptor, and graphic designer who does an excellent job of pretending to be perfectly normal at all times.
