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.

I've just released a brand new young-adult novel called Keep the Ghost. It's about pseudocide, about faking your death to figure out what's underneath your name. If you liked [sic], I promise you will love this. The first quarter of the book is here on Wattpad, but the entire novel is up at Amazon.com as an eBook for $5.
