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.

ScottKelly commented on [sic] - 23. Aftermath

I suppose I feel like I put a lot of myself into my books - so it's a bit weird in a way, in that I think someone who read [sic] could guess a lot of things about my personality or life. But I know absolutely nothing about them, of course, since most readers don't leave any kind of trace.

I have read your book sic more than a dozen times and each time it hits me in a different way. Really speaks to me and I always tell people it's one of my favorites and they should read it. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to read more from you.

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 !!
