She has encouraged by her father to become an author and she has been writing since the age of 9. Scott completed her graduation from the Southern California University. An early marriage and the birth of her son did not allow her to do much of the research work for her novels. Therefore, she had to stay at her home and write about whatever thoughts and imagination came to her mind. After struggling for around 12 years, she was finally able to get her novels published. Following that, there was no turning back for author Scott. Other than writing mystery books, author Scott enjoys horse-riding, cooking, yoga, and meditation.

Author Scott was born in San Diego, The United States, and grew up in an area located just to the east of San Diego, called as Jamul. Her parents gifted her first horse to her when she was just five years and it was at that time itself that she learned horse riding. At the age of nine, Scott realized that she had a great interest in writing. When she showed her first short story to her father, he praised her new found talent and since then, Scott has never stopped writing books and stories. Author Scott graduated with a bachelor’s degree in the subject of communications. Taking up journalism as a major subject at the university, Scott initially hoped to become a reporter. But deep inside her heart, the urge to become a fiction author was always there. But fate had something else planned for her. Scott became pregnant during the senior year of her college. As her son was born prematurely by 6 weeks, she had to stay at home and keep him under constant care. She would get a lot of free time by doing so, which she utilized to write her first novel. Author Scott contacted the Writer’s Digest and ordered a correspondence course for writing a book. During the course of the next 10 years, she kept on writing books, submitting them to publishers, attending workshops and conferences, etc. But, she faced nothing but rejections.
Scott never gave up on her hopes of publishing her own novel one day and eventually, she was signed by Jessica Faust from Bookends as a client in the year 2004.

The surreal and wonderful feeling enabled her to celebrate and enjoy that full night with her husband and a champagne bottle. In all, author Scott has written 8 mystery novels for the Berkley publication. Currently, she is working on her debut novel based on women’s fiction. Scott lives happily in her home located in San Diego, along with her supportive and loving husband, a couple of sons and a daughter. During her spare time, she likes to help the upcoming author. Scott has designed a learning program for young authors to teach them how to write stories. She has also developed a program for the older kids to learn how to write novellas. Scott has personally mentored a few students and says that it is a very joyful experience to watch the creativity of the young writers at work.
