R. Scott Boyer graduated from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley in 1996. In 2008, he became fascinated with the idea of blending young adult fantasy with new-age fiction. While maintaining a full-time job, he couldn’t help but envision a storyline for the kind of book he wanted to read. This exploration led to the creation of the Bobby Ether YA fantasy series, which combines spiritual themes with ancient myths and legends to create fun, fast-paced stories tailored for young adults but suited for adventure lovers of all ages.
Through his writing, Scott likes to explore various metaphysical and spiritual themes, including the concepts of karma, serendipity, communion with nature, and the interconnectedness of all living things.
In his free time, Scott likes to play basketball and tennis, as well as exercise with his dog, Patch. Over the years, he has been involved with a number of volunteer organizations, including United In Harmony, the Collins & Katz Family YMCA, coaching various basketball programs, and C5LA.
Raised in Santa Monica, California, Scott still resides in the Los Angeles area close to his family.
