About this author

Born and raised in Beardstown, IL, Scott William Foley is a proud husband, father, and educator. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in English Secondary Education from Illinois State University, and his Master's degree in Reading from Illinois State University as well.

He also wrote the eighteen episode electronic serial, Dr. Nekros (2011-2014).

This is a strange book and I mean that as a total compliment. Strange is good. Unique is appreciated. Original is commendable. Pretty Deadly is all of those things, and more.
