Scott Reed


Scott Reed was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1966. An avid reader as a child, family and career led him to the transportation industry.

Scott is a Cum Laude graduate of the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science in Management. He has spent the last 20 years in the automotive industry. He began writing professionally three years ago covering the Oregon Ducks for Duck Sports Authority, the Oregon affiliate of the network.

His first novel, Middle of Nothing, comes from many incarnations of a concept developed some years ago and represents a philosophic look at how men relate to the changing world.

Scott entered the United States Marine Corps after high school to help pave his way to college. While writing has been a part of him from a very young age, he had children (now 25 and 22) while in college and chose to postpone writing as he worked to educate his children. He is currently working on his second novel with some concepts for a couple of additional projects.

A muse struck and he enjoys the process of writing immensely.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always wanted to write a novel. The first book, middle of Nothing, was inspired over many years and took many forms before it all came together.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Right now it has given me a platform. As I looked for traditional deals, it seemed all too strange that writing is the one medium where the artist has no ability to get his work in front of others. There are always local clubs to support musicians, and galleries for painters. Where was the writer to go?
