Who Is Scott Meehan?
Scott Meehan was born on October 19, 1958, in Baltimore, Maryland. His parents decided to become missionaries in 1966, which started his diverse cultural living through seven states, four countries, and thirteen different schools. He joined the U.S. Army in 1980 as an enlisted private and retired twenty-five years later in 2005 as a Major. He deployed to Operation Desert Storm (1991) and did three tours to Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) (2003-2004), (2005), (2006-2007). Throughout his career, Meehan remains devoted to family, Christ, and God’s word.
Meehan graduated from Southeastern University in 1989 and completed ROTC at Florida Southern the same year. He received a MA Degree in Computer Resources and Information Management in 2000 and a MBA degree in Business Administration in 2017.
In 2009, Meehan self-published his first book, Prince of Babylon, which he co-authored with Robb Hawks. Two years later in 2011, he self-published his first solo book, an autobiography, Stone In A Sling: A Soldier’s Journey. The following year, he re-published Stone In A Sling and his first novel, Eternal Eye through iUniverse (2012). More novels soon followed, including Love in the House of War (2013), Flame in Paradise (2014), and Millennial Girl (2015). Eternal Eye, now self-published as Duty Recall, is a time travel novella where a lone surviving military officer of a downed C-5 in Iraq returns to 1991 to find everything moving on the same course as he previously remembered. Faced with the risk of altering the course of history and self-implication, he tries to prevent the Oklahoma City bombing.
Meehan continues to write and be involved in stimulating projects. He taught seven years at local colleges, supports numerous mission projects and founded PTSIO, which stands for Post-Traumatic Stress In Order. Scott’s mission is to guide veterans into telling their own story while desiring to see veterans and their family members discover the uncompromising truths of Scripture intellectually. His greatest passion is to make the Bible feel accessible and relevant by expressing his personal experiences of faith and practical applications in today’s diverse world.
