Finley Scott


Finley Scott was born and raised in the American South, where the weather is hot and the music is hotter, where storytelling is a regional past time and people still believe in things that go bump in the night.

Southern cities have a feel and a vibe all their own. The ghosts of the past still haunt the back alleys and waterways, and not-so-mythical creatures populate the cities- if you know where to look.

If you're in Memphis, New Orleans, Atlanta, or Little Rock- you'll find Finley's characters, and sometimes even Finley herself, walking the streets, drinking a beer, or catching a show.

So grab a glass of sweet tea, or something stronger if you're so inclined, and settle in. It's story time.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Arkansas. Almost all of my stories are set in the American South. There's such a different culture here-- food, music, art, literature, and especially superstitions. Living in central Arkansas, I'm around three hours from Memphis, six hours from Dallas, Nashville, Kansas City, and St, Louis, and about eight hours from Atlanta and New Orleans. Each of the cities has a different feel, but they are all united by a feeling of "Southern-ness," even though Kansas city and St Louis are more midwestern. There's a mythology in the south that lends itself to great fiction.
Describe your desk
I have- for the first time in my life- a desk. I've been writing for years, but my "writing space" has always involved a lap tray and a corner of the couch! My desk is small, about two and a half feet across. The main writing surface is about 18 inches deep. It holds my laptop, a notepad, and a few fountain pens. There's a small shelf along the back, and it holds several bottles of fountain pen inks (I write my first drafts my hand), a jar of Pepper Imps and a Honeydukes jar of Sherbert Lemons (from the Wizarding Word of Harry Potter), and Moriarity and Gerard Way Pop Vinyls.
