About Scott McKay
Scott McKay is a New Media entrepreneur and publisher of TheHayride.com, a news and commentary site devoted to Louisiana and national politics and policy.
Scott McKay, who posts under the handle of MacAoidh, is the founder and publisher of The Hayride. Some have called him Louisiana’s most prominent and long-standing conservative pundit, but Scott isn’t limited just to pontificating on Louisiana topics.
You’ll find his writings at The American Spectator, where he has a weekly column, PJ Media and RedState, among other sites. You can also see him being interviewed in some YouTube videos.
In the fall of 2019, Scott published his first novel, Animus: A Tale of Ardenia.
A veteran of sports and political journalism and punditry, in 2019 Scott McKay branched out into fiction with Animus: A Tale of Ardenia, the first of four books in the Tales of Ardenia series.
Scott’s writing career started all the way back in 1997 with the launch of Purple & Gold, a sports magazine devoted to college athletics at Louisiana State University.
Over the eight years Purple & Gold was in existence it grew to over 15,000 subscribers and was known as one of the most comprehensive, well-written, and insightful college sports publications in America.
Following a five-year hiatus from writing while pursuing opportunities in sales and entrepreneurship, Scott returned to the written word with the launch of The Hayride, an online publication devoted to Southern politics and culture.
It was through that site’s coverage of the life and political events in Louisiana and elsewhere that Scott found the inspiration to begin a second career as a fiction author.
Animus: A Tale of Ardenia, published in September 2019, is the opening salvo in a sage of love, hate, war, peace, civilization, and savagery intended not just to entertain but to provoke thought about good and evil and the border between the two. Scott lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
