Frustrated with the generic, paint-by-numbers state of modern fantasy writing, Scott Colby is working hard to give the genre the kick in the pants it so desperately needs. Shouldn't stories about people and creatures with the power to magically change the world around them be creative, funny, and kind of weird? Scott thinks so.

I was born on Halloween night and spent my formative years on a commune in northern California’s backwoods. A childhood without television gave me a great love of books and the worlds I found in them. I wrote my first book, an adventure story starring my cat, at the age of seven. Sadly, that work is currently out of print, but see the Fiction page for current and upcoming publications. I am a longtime practitioner of Ashtanga yoga, have no tattoos, and live on Orcas Island, upper Washington state, with my husband, Mark Ferrari, along with seventeen twenty orchids*, baskets of interesting seashells, a frog pond, and slightly fewer books than this time last year.

Chris Yarbrough, or “The Illustrator Yar” as he’s known amongst the Northern hill tribes, and desert nomads, is here to do much, much more than cave paintings. Friend, let me tell you, he has a stylus in hand and vengeance in his heart. He knows his good fortune comes not from the Gods, in their high halls, but from you. your patronage is the horse blood he mixes in mare’s milk, when the ride is long. You are the mighty eagle of the night sky that guides him on the vast plain. You are the blood-mad exultation that springs forth, when he calls down wrath upon his enemies. For this, he gives thanks and makes sacrifices in your honor. The Illustrator Yar has no goats, he has no silver... Only content. Content that is yours, if you would but only reach out your hand, and take it! What will it be, friend? Will you take it, or will the howling ones consume your flesh? The choice is yours.

A graduate of the Boston based Butera School of Art. I've freelanced as a professional illustrator going on twenty plus years. Working diligently with large and small companies and personal clients across America and abroad. Most of my work has focussed in the field of advertising (comps, tv boards). Though I've also done storyboards/keyframes for production houses and an animation studio. I've worked on the popular Marvel Comics license through Upper Deck trading cards as well as a Hasbro Transformers set.

I am a traditional hand drawing illustrator working in the mediums of pencil, watercolor, marker, ink and Photoshop. My years of working with various creatives has instilled in me a intuitive nature of understanding what a client is looking for. As well as enabling me to offer a perspective on how to approach a project.
