Scott Alexander is a self-confessed Valley Boy and Native American, from the El Lay burbs. Once nominated for a Pulitzer, he eked out “a major list of minor publications” incl.: Parnassus, Paris, and Chiron Review(s); two poetry books of which Litany won the Masters Literary Award; a screenplay to which he’d rather not admit; a story collection, The Crow Wars, currently optioned by Titan Press – and a novel, Orange Messiahs, which can be previewed at Bookrix.com
A once Hollywood agent, Scott “interviewed many good liars but few good actors.” He also built several houses with his own hands. And for mid-life crisis, he garnered two “useless” graduate degrees,” then served a stint as a professor of Writing Studies in an ex-Soviet republic.
More tangibly, Scott recently helmed a popular writers club where, in five years, he helmed sixty of the most well attended and critically acclaimed little literary events in SoCal.
