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 twenty-eight 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.

@Goose73 All good points, thanks for your insight. Particularly in the beginning of the novel, Jacob is definitely guilty of what you're saying. I...

You're quite good at this. Some of the best composition I have seen on Wattpad.

I like this.

Thanks! I don't think it is right for every book. In fact, it's quite a rare way to write. However, in this book (and my next book) I have used...
