About

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 loved your book !! I'm always looking for mystery or suspense books, but never find a book that really hooks me to it. And your book was just what I needed, I couldn't stop reading it. It really makes you think about the decisions you make in life and if they are the right ones. 5 stars !!

I just wanted to say that I think you're an amazing writer, and I definitely hope to see more of your work around.
      
      Out of your books, my favourite would probably be Frightened Boy. It got me hooked from begin till end, though the ending was a bit, eh, difficult. I still don't exactly get what happened in the last chapter but that doesn't matter because it was awesome.
      
      So anyway, I'd love to read more from you, I really like your writing style.
      Also change back to past tense pls!
