Kevin Scrivner: Published Rocket Rangers Pulp Science Fantasy Adventures

Our eldest son, Kevin Scott, has always had an interest in science fiction ... although he seldom has had friends to play games with, he loves the gaming world and he loves to write about it to the point that he spends countless hours pouring over research to write the best and most authentic piece of fantasy gaming ever possible.  

And then there is that masterpiece where Kevin is reported to be a "Veteran Minataurian" in his writings of Mazes and Minotaurs.  Kevin writes about the Land of the Sun ... ancient civilizations in the far Eastern desert.   He speaks of  a "mostly human" Akamen Empire and the struggles with the Mineans, Umbrians and Tritonians.  For those who enjoy this world of thought, this is an amazing read.  For the true 'gamer' it would have to be a conquest to enjoy.

I Remember Kevin's Early Years
Kevin's life has never been easy.   Born our first child, seven weeks early and weighing in at 2 lbs 2 oz, he spent the first two months of his life in the hospital.   And he returned on numerous occasions throughout the years.  He is resilient, a fighter with a melancholy temperment.    . 
Kevin's  melancholy temperment holds true with his multi-gifted nature and  analyzing mind.  The simplest innocent comment can get an automatic question of "what do you mean by that?"  Melancholy temperments are generally good spellers and precise grammarian and yet sensitive and a bit of an introvert.  Kevin is strong willed in what he believes.  Just try to change his mind on something, I promise you that you will more often not win.  (Photo 1961:  Daddy Ken and Kevin enjoying an intimate moment of joy.)
(Photo 1964: April and Kevin playing cowboy and indians.)
(Photo 1978:  Kevin at Pipe Stem, W Va while visiting Grandma Montgomery.)     Kevin is extremely loyal to his cautiously chosen friends.   And because he is such a hard worker in his areas of interest, he has successfully produced  those published pieces of science and fantasy which he pens.
From the time he was a young teen, his Christmas list included a request for a wife.  We never could provide that for him but he found one for himself in Bonita.  I think perhaps one of the happiest days of his life might have been they day he married his bride.    And when cancer tried to take him, his fighting spirit and faith in God brought him victory while speaking words of faith that he would live and not die.  Many times I heard his confession that he would live to see his children and attend their wedding.   So Kevin and Bonita  now have two beautiful children, Devin and Hailey. (Photo 1965: Kevin with April, Joel and Sommer.)
Thank you Kevin for being our son, for fighting the fight of faith and for your staying power to ever trust in God.  Your Dad and I love you very much.
