How to make an audiobook

A guide for the complete beginner Well, the first step, as you can see, is to get a cat that walks over your keyboard and thumps his tail on your microphone when you least expect it. (Below is a close up of how he likes to edit my books.) Okay, seriously, I’m not a professional,… Continue Reading


Map of the 159 best bicycle touring destinations in the world

159 bicycle touring destinations you must see

Editor’s Note: Here’s another great infographic with over 50 original drawings of cyclists. And, I’m one of them. And—Yes!—it looks like me. Scroll down and try to find my favorite 3 places to cycle tour in the world. All the other bicycle tourists contributed a lot of great suggestions that I’ll have to add to my bucket list of places to cycle. (I need a bigger bucket.) Thanks again to Mads for all the hard work that goes into collecting this information and making it look pretty. If you like this, see Mads’ other that shows 121 examples of trips that other bicyclists took.


Bike USA ad, full-page, 4-color newspaper ad. This is the ad that got Scott fired from his job as art director.

The advertisement that got me fired and “ruined” my life

This career-changing and life-changing event led to the incendiary moment which compelled me to ask, “If I could do anything, what would I do?” And if you know me, you know my answer was to ride a bicycle around the world and find the meaning of life and happiness or die trying. Well, I came close to dying, but I lived to write my best-selling, independent book Falling Uphill about my quest for happiness

Welcome Book Expo Friends

Welcome to all our new friends from the Bookexpo America. My partner, Dr Sara Williams, and I had a great time participating as both educators and authors.

Mars One. The next giant leap for mankind.

Scott Stoll Wants To Go To Mars And Never Come Back

Sometimes Scott Stoll dreams of that first day on Mars. He steps outside, the rusty red rocks kicking up a fine dust beneath his feet. He is in an extra-terrestrial bowl surrounded by an eroded rim that rises gently on the horizon, forming the lip of a vast crater.


Mars One. The next giant leap for mankind.

Mars One Failure to Launch

The good news is that I won’t have to eat worms and algae for the rest of my life; the bad news is that I failed to qualify for the next round of Mars One.

Falling Uphill Book Tour

Scott attempts to circumnavigate North America on a bicycle towing a trailer of books. Unexpected Success! Update 02-2015: Though I stopped traveling by bicycle, the book tour continued in unexpected ways to make Falling Uphill an Independent Bestseller. I even got to go to Argentina as the Honorary Cultural Ambassador. And best of all hundreds… Continue Reading


Jumping jacks on a frozen lake

Here’s another item to add to your bucket list. Walking on top of a frozen lake is a simple and fun adventure many people can do near their home.


Mars One astronaut update

A quick update: There are less than 600 applicants left to be an astronaut with Mars One. I had my job interview today with Dr. Norbert Kraft. You’ll have to wait for the results on February 16th. I can’t talk about it yet. Visit me on the Mars One website.


Scott’s World Record

I’ve done many things, but I don’t think I hold any world records until now.


Around the World Radio interviews

I have had many impromptu interviews all over the world, including the Fitness Guru on Sirius Radio and Around the World Radio.


Aquatic Bicycle Ride

If you didn’t know, I rode a bicycle around the world, and the most popular question was: “How did you ride a bike across the ocean?” My favorite joke was to say: “I just put extra air in the tires.” Now the joke has come true.


Martian Babies

When my girlfriend found out I qualified to be a Martian astronaut she wasn’t supportive. “Huney, just think, we could have the first Martian babies ever!
