VJ Books Presents Author Justin Scott! (aka Paul Garrison)
Justin Scott is the author of more than 30 thrillers, mysteries and sea stories including The Shipkiller, Normandie Triangle, and A Pride of Royals. Paul Garrison is Justin Scott's main pen name under which he writes modern sea stories (Red Sky at Morning, Fire and Ice, Buried at Sea, Sea Hunter, and The Ripple Effect).
Scott was born in New York and grew up on Long Island's Great South Bay in a family of professional writers. Before becoming a writer, Scott worked at a variety of jobs: he drove boats and trucks, built Fire Island beach houses, tended bar in a Hell's Kitchen saloon, and edited an electronic engineering journal. He holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in American history.
In addition to his Garrison pen name, Justin Scott has written mysteries as J. S. Blazer and Alexander Cole. He has traveled extensively while researching his novels. Scott says that he "has been fortunate to have had wise and generous mentors:Donald E. Westlake, Lawrence Block, Brian Garfield, Robert Ludlum, literary agent Henry Morrison, and his own father, whose westerns were the first books he read."
Scott is no stranger to critical acclaim. He has been twice nominated for the Edgar Allan Poe Award by the Mystery Writers of America. He is a member of the Authors Guild, The Players, and the Adams Round Table. Scott's glasnost mystery, The Widow of Desire, and his Hong Kong turnover thriller, The Nine Dragons, were both Literary Guild Dual Main Selections. Normandie Triangle was a Featured Alternate.
Reader's Digest presented a couple of his novels as "Condensed Books," no small delight as Scott has often said as the Digest was not only the most generous house in the publishing industry, but also threw the best parties, by far.
Justin Scott lives in Connecticut with his wife, filmmaker Amber Edwards.
Norwood Press is the sole publisher of Clive Cussler limited edition titles.
