Scott Zamek is an American novelist best known for the travel memoir One More Horizon, an account of the author's 25,000-mile journey around the globe on a mountain bike. During the three-year odyssey, Zamek was taken prisoner by the Syrian Secret Police, left for dead in the Gobi Desert, and interned in a Pakistani immigration camp, among other misadventures. The journey spanned five continents, forty countries, and all of the major deserts and mountain ranges of the world--an estimated 5.8 million pedal strokes.
His recent works include full-length novels in the fantasy and science fiction genres, including the acclaimed fantasy novel The Light of Endura and the forthcoming sci fi adventure Singularity. He lives and works in Orange Springs, Florida.
