My Story So Far
Over my life, I have spent so much time musing over things that have meant something to me and to date most of this was replayed in the 2 bands I was in, Wide Eyed Wonder in the 90’s and latterly Polaroyd.
However about 15 years ago I started to play with writing, a few poems, keeping more serious journals and starting a book. My first 2 books remain in the locker needing much work but 8 years ago ‘On Ashover Hill’ was born and I found it took me over. I still walk in places named in the book and I am walking there with characters that I have created. They mean that much to me.
Books for me are like babies. They are born and they take time to nurture. I was so excited that On Ashover Hill came out and had such an effect on so many of you.
I was thrilled to then release ‘The Birthday Gift.’ The book begins with a Grandad and the link to ‘On Ashover Hill’ is made right away. However unlike that book which covered 103 years, ‘The Birthday Gift’ action takes place in under a year. It has the same hallmarks as my first published book of a story written in fact and added to by my fiction. There’s also a link to a recent Hollywood blockbuster which amazed me when I saw it. I was pleased that many of you enjoyed it as much as ‘On Ashover Hill,’ and that this book found a new audience.
Now I release ‘Being in a Band.’ It’s semi-biographical, totally silly, and I hope you love it and that this book too finds a new audience.
Finally, I have a few ideas on the go for my next project and will keep you posted.
Thank you so much for dropping by.

Pleasure & Passion
Sharing my words with you in a more direct form through the web site is a real pleasure for me and in particular, the journal and the blip mean a lot to me. You can see my photos on the blip gallery by clicking on the link above.
Books by Anthony Scott
I am a writer. I guess this sort of begins to explain who I am and what I am. What comes out of me is an extension of this desire, this need, to immerse myself in words. To date, I have written three novels On Ashover Hill, The Birthday Gift and my latest book to be released is Being in a Band.
On Ashover Hill
The Birthday Gift
The Birthday Gift, Anthony Scott’s emotionally gripping second novel with a story that sweeps through issues of love, of hope, of sorrow and of destiny.
