Bill Scott


As a writer in love with the late Old West (post-Civil War to 1900), I plan more novels for that period. Appropriately to the characters of my first three books, I have Irish and Scottish immigrant blood, as well as a bit of Cherokee. I hold Bachelor's degrees from Washington State University and Brooks Institute of Photography, and am a former college instructor and professional photographer. I live near the ocean on California's Central Coast and am currently researching ideas for my next historical novel.
