Scott Sakatch has been a journalist, a waiter, a ditch rider, a railroad clerk, a consultant, a college instructor, a communications professional for the beef cattle industry and a full-time fiction writer. Guess which one he likes the best.
He started making up stories in his head as a child but never wrote anything down because, to be honest, he was a pretty lazy kid. In 2006, he finally wrote his first ever piece of fiction, a sci-fi short story about aliens, farmers and terrorism, called "Dust To Dust." A few months later, to his utter amazement, it was published in On Spec: The Canadian Magazine of Speculative Fiction. They even paid him money for it, if you can believe that.
He wrote False Witness, a mystery-thriller about journalists and outlaw bikers that he'd conceived years earlier while still a reporter. In 2017, he wrote In Angel We Trust, a short thriller about a bestselling author who is terrorized by home invaders. His sci-fi detective novel Burnside's Killer was co-written with bestselling author Timothy Ellis.
He lives with his wife in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. They have two grown children and a dog.
