About the Author

Scott was born in Romford, Essex in 1956. His writing career was kick-started after he won first prize in the Sunday Express Short Story Competition. Scott divides his time between writing, IT contract work and drumming. He has recorded with internationally renowned rock band ‘Jethro Tull’ and appeared in concert with 70′s popsters ‘Mungo Jerry’.

Scott has recently published his sixth novel, the third in the popular DCI Brendan Moran crime series, entitled ‘Death Walks Behind You’. Scott lives in Berkshire with his wife, Katherine, his two youngest children (Tom, 17 and Emily, 16) and a Cocker Spaniel named Archie. He is a committed Christian (Scott, not Archie) and is actively involved in his local church in Reading.

Scott was long listed for the Times/Chicken House Children’s Novel Competition for ‘The Ley Lines of Lushbury’ and won the Sunday Express Short Story Competition a few years back for his historical entry set in the English Civil War (you can view the Newspaper). ‘The Trespass’ is an Amazon top 20 Bestseller.
