Scott Magnuson


Author, Scott Magnuson has been doing two things longer than most: Working in bars & restaurants, and drinking & drugging. An addict at 14, Scott got his first job in a bar - an industry that would allow him to focus on his first true loves, drugs and alcohol. It was a good life, for a while. Evading the law, skirting the consequences of his actions, and leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. His world finally started crashing down around him 18 years later, and he was on the verge of losing his family, his business, and himself. That was July 12, 2011. Now, with several years of recovery under his belt, Scott is continuing his career in the restaurant industry, and is dedicated to helping others out of addiction's darkness. He is also the president of the CHAMPS, the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce. --- Shaaren Pine has been learning the ins and outs of the restaurant business since starting her first restaurant job in 2005. Now, as a manager and business owner, and with help from her Earlham College education, she is committed to bridging the gap between business and community, and changing restaurant culture. Shaaren is also passionate about adoptee rights, and advocating for the families of addicts. She writes about her adoption from a social justice perspective, and about addiction through a spousal lens. Together, Scott and Shaaren run two businesses, have created a non-profit*, serve on two boards, and are raising their daughter, Ara. They live in Washington, DC, and this is their first book, a memoir titled, Torn Together.
