Scott is the author of the novel Star Liner (2018 Copypasta Publishing). He has also published several nonfiction articles. He received a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from Idaho State University. He is an avid reader of all of the subgenres of speculative fiction, as well as history, other nonfiction, or anything else that strikes his fancy. Over the years he has developed a love of writing for the fun of it. He writes a weekly blog at: https://scottbranchfield.blogspot.com. As an adult he rediscovered his fondness for acting. He enjoys performing in his local theatre companies and even occasionally writes plays for them. He currently works as a cartographer for the county which forces him to be a part time historian because maps tell stories and are themselves based on stories. Scott lives with his wife on the Oregon Coast.
