Scott is a monster hunter.
After a round trip around the universe, he has written Beyond the Knock Knock Door - his first contemporary fantasy novel for children. It chronicles the story of the Bowman triplets who stop squabbling long enough to solve riddles, dodge swashbucklers, fight a ferocious creature, and eat plenty of good stuff that dentists absolutely abhor.
Respected for his ability to get even the most reluctant readers to pick up a book, Scott has also written four novels for teenagers, including Boyz'R'Us, Raw, The Crush and The Never Boys.
When he isn't busy hunting monsters, he works as a sub-editor for The Australian newspaper or watches his footy team being smashed.
In 1999 he won South Australia's Young Journalist of the Year Award.
