Hello. I'm Scott, and I love to write books. I wrote my first novel when I was fifteen, and it wasn't very good. I kept writing a book a year all through high school and while I was in college studying Literature, one of my novels, "Jimwamba," was published by Flame Books. I was finally an indie novelist, and it's been a long climb from there. Now I'm older and live in Texas with my wonderful wife Erin, and I've never stopped working on my craft.

I care about books that are entertaining, but also books that make you think. I love quality literature and am always trying to craft something more than "just a story." I put a lot of depth into my writing because I want to attract readers who appreciate that quality in literature. 

Wattpad has been very good to me, and if you reward me with your fanship and votes, I promise to return the favor by bringing you more gritty, cerebral literature.

Don't forget to check out my webpage and add me on Facebook if you enjoy my work.

I'm looking for beta readers for my new novel, Keep the Ghost. It's complete, now, although I am still revising and editing. If you liked [sic], you hopefully will like this. Just PM me your email address, so that I can send you a copy. Very interested in your thoughts. 
ScottKelly commented on Deer - Reason Four - He Saw

Hey, this is a really clever one. I really like the way you opened the scene, with the flash forward that is very suggestive, but tells you nothing. You wrote this scene like it was the episode of a good television show, which I think is a good thing. It has a very definite beginning, luring you in - then the plot moves - then you finish with a cliffhanger. It's well-crafted.
