Scott Hayes grew up in the small town of Erect, North Carolina. Yes, that is actually the name of the town. He currently lives twenty miles down the road in Asheboro, with his wife Karen, and still within five miles of his childhood friends. Scott graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a degree in “computers,” as he would say, and has worked as an dispatcher, youth pastor, and a financial representative, writing in his free time. Scott found his passion for writing after realizing his knack for creating elaborate characters and stories, so he set out to become an author. His hope is that his writing would slide back the veil of everyday life to reveal something magical for his future kids, friends, and anyone who would share in his stories.
