- Author BiographyBorn in Glenboro, Manitoba, Scott Young started in the newspaper business as a night copy boy for the Winnipeg Free Press. He moved on to become a sportswriter and, later, a war correspondent. After serving with the Royal Canadian Navy in Europe during the Second World War, he went to work for Macleans. By 1948 he had achieved enough success as a writer of short stories to become a full-time freelancer, publishing in major U.S., Canadian and European magazines and anthologies. In 1957, Young resumed newspaper writing, covering news and sports for the Globe and Mail and acting as sports editor for the Toronto Telegram (1969-71). In 1980, he returned to full-time work on his own writing projects.
