SCooP – The Podcast

“A weekly look into Sports, Culture and Politics. And why it matters.




Stephen R. Burns was born in a small town in Southern Ontario. He wrote his first story when he was ten, a fantastical tale about the great Ted Williams hitting a home run and then jumping into a spaceship to save the world. (His storytelling has improved)

He developed his love of books at the local library and an old second-hand bookstore when his parents would leave him for hours to peruse the latest Edgar Rice Burroughs or Isaac Asimov novel.

Thirty years later and he still reads and writes fantastic novels, action-oriented adventures designed to move your heart as much as your mind. Aside from the older pulp fiction authors of the early 20th Century, his writing has been heavily influenced by authors like Robert B. Parker, Robert Jordan, and Brandon Sanderson.

He lives in Toronto, Ontario.

  1. Looking forward to following you on your blog! More importantly, I look forward to “Winter”!! All the best!

  2. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks!

  3. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  4. Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

  5. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera. Superb Blog!

  6. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your blog. It appears like some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

  7. Start with WordPress. And then read everything you can on not only how to write, but things that interest you. Expect to be bad for a while. We all start there. But keep going. 🙂 You can do this!
