Scott's first novel, Mommy's Choice, was originally published in paperback under the pseudonym Scott Curtis. In under a year on the bookshelves, that novel won the National Christian Choice Book Award for romantic suspense. When Scott moved to a different publisher and started making his novels available to Kindle readers, he returned to his real name and reduced the prices to the absolute minimum allowed by Amazon.
Scott McElhaney currently resides in Ohio with his wife and two sons. He's a Desert Shield veteran of the US Navy, having served on the USS South Carolina CGN-37.

It's easier for an author to write in this category when he/she is willing to go a thousand years into the future, which I've often done. But I wanted to write a realistic tale that takes place closer to our own era. I also loved the concept of finding a habitable moon as opposed to a planet. Many people don't realize how many problems would come with colonizing a moon, one of which would be the long periods of solar eclipse each month caused from orbiting a large planet. I wanted to have a little fun with all of this and once I started writing, I kept discovering more and more, creating more tales and characters as I went. Ultimately when I realized how much I had to work with, I couldn't stop writing. The first tale in the Colonization saga "Kepler Moon Alpha" came from the concept of a story I wrote more than a decade ago and then had lost the whole file after I wrote it. I always wanted to rewrite it because I love a good suspense story where the reader is kept guessing until the very end. Unfortunately I was mad for such a long time over losing everything I wrote, so it waited until this year when I started over again. I'm much more satisfied with this version of the story than the one I had written and lost many years ago.(less)
