Hello everyone. Welcome to the blog for R Scott Boyer, author of the Bobby Ether YA adventure series. The first book, Bobby Ether and the Academy was released in Sept ’13. The sequel, Bobby Ether and the Temple of Eternity came out in Sept ’14. The third story in the series, Bobby Ether and the Great Sphinx is also in the works and is scheduled for release in mid-2016.
On this site, I will be discussing a variety of topics related to writing, including my inspiration, the art of crafting compelling stories, as well as other topics of interest such as fantasy and new-age/spiritual fiction. But first, here is a little bit about me:
I graduated from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley in 1996. In 2008, I became fascinated with the idea of blending young adult fantasy with new-age/spiritual fiction and thus began my journey as a writer. While maintaining a full-time job, I couldn’t help but envision and create a storyline for the kind of book I wanted to read. This exploration led to my first novel, Bobby Ether and the Academy.
I believe that there is meaning in most actions/events if you know how to look. I believe in spirituality, the interconnectedness of all things, and in trying to make the world a better place. I volunteer with kids, coach basketball, and participate in several summer and winter camp programs, as well as a holiday celebration that honors United States veterans.
Raised in Santa Monica, California, I still reside in the Los Angeles area close to my family. In my free time, I like to bike with my shepperd-mix rescue dog, Patch, play basketball and tennis, and spend time outdoors.
