BioScott Michael Stenwick was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1969. A natural storyteller from early childhood, he was drawing pictures and assembling them into simple narratives before he could read or write. He was exposed to computers in 1977 when his elementary school acquired an Apple II, and has been writing and programming ever since. Later, he developed an interest in esoteric studies as a teenager following in the footsteps of his great-grandmother, a professional astrologer and medium, and began practicing ritual and ceremonial magick.
Scott's magical motto is Ananael Qaa, meaning "the secret wisdom of creation" in the Angelic language revealed to John Dee and Edward Kelley in the sixteenth century. Under that motto he maintains a blog dedicated to the discussion of magical techniques, the Western Esoteric Tradition, and current events related to magick and spirituality, called Augoeides - Spiritual Technology for a New Aeon. "Augoeides" is a Greek term that refers to the essential spiritual and magical self.
Scott attended Saint Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota and graduated in 1991 with a degree in psychology. After graduation he went to work in the computer field and built a career as a software developer and information technology consultant. In college he worked on two novels in addition to his studies but eventually decided that neither was suitable for publication without substantial revision. One of these novels went on to become Arcana, released in December 2009 by Pendraig Publishing. His subsequent novels are available from Moonfire Publishing.
