About Scott Stoops

“Looking for adventure in whatever comes our way.”

— Steppenwolf

I get a kick out of writing the “about me” sections of social media. Describe Scott Stoops in just a few words. Here we go. I am a novelist, humorist, actor, and self-proclaimed local adventurer.

I’ve always found this quote fascinating. Many see “adventure” as something we go looking for, but adventure is all around us. All we have to do is open our eyes to it. The magical and the mundane walk together, side-by-side and hand-in-hand.

Acting and writing both reached out to me as a teenager. For my high school newspaper, I wrote fiction stories and illustrated a comic strip. I first appeared “on stage” in a production written and directed by my middle school teacher. I’ve gone down the path of acting in a local community theater.

I’ve tried my hand at writing plays, have novels in “development” (OK, in limbo), and short stories. Short stories and humorous essays seem to be my forte.

Seeing the power and influence of the story has inspired me to not only live my own stories (the adventurer) but to tell them (the writer).

I’ve traveled the world and experienced some unique cultures. I now live in a small town in the heart of Ohio.

I hope you will follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.
