Scott Livingston was born and raised in southeastern Pennsylvania. A lifelong fan of fantasy, science fiction, and great books of any genre, Scott began writing seriously at about the age of 11. He created the world of Tornalia as a high school student in the 1990s and has continued to develop it ever since, adding layers of detail and shaping it into a convincing, compelling, and unique world.
Scott wrote the first Tornalia novel (The Dagger of Despair, written from 1998 to 2000) as a high school and college student. He is currently working on a complete retelling and re-envisioning of this story. Scott lived in Japan for a time, and has traveled extensively in North America and parts of Europe and Asia. He now resides in Ithaca, New York, with his wife, two children, and ferret.
