About this author

USA TODAY Bestselling author Jessica Scott is a career army officer, mother of two daughters, three cats and three dogs, wife to a career NCO and wrangler of all things stuffed and fluffy. She is a terrible cook and even worse housekeeper, but she's a pretty good shot with her assigned weapon and someone liked some of the stuff she wrote. Somehow, her children are pretty well adjusted and her husband still loves her, despite burned water and a messy house.

She's written for the New York Times At War Blog, PBS Point of View Regarding War, and IAVA. She deployed to Iraq in 2009 as part of OIF/New Dawn and is currently a company commander stationed at Fort Hood.

Most recently, she's been featured as one of Esquire Magazine's Americans of the Yea...more


I grew up unwrapping thousands of pounds of pastries to use in baits. My dad makes his living off baiting, guiding and hunting and has done so his entire life. My brother and I used to have to move drying skins out of the cellar way in order to bring wood upstairs to keep the fire going. While I personally don’t hunt, I respect people who do. Hell, they’re my family.

“Seeing how I've held your penis in my hand, I think that puts you firmly in the not a stranger category.”
Jessica Scott, Because of You

“She said nothing, refusing to meet his gaze. After a long moment, he released her.
“So that’s the way it is, then.” His words were not a question. The door closed quietly behind him, leaving her cold to the bone, hollowed out and empty. Leaving her alone. Just like always.”
Jessica Scott, Until There Was You

“I feel like I should have a formation and make the plantoon sergeants demonstrate how to put a condom on the correct way."

“Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard, don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like.”
Alan M. Dershowitz

Jessica Scott, Until There Was You

“He was a fool.
Claire Montoya was convinced she didn’t need anyone. That her way was the only way.
He kept walking.
Because only a fool would want a woman who would never let him in. He could touch her skin, touch her body, but she’d never trust him enough to let him touch her heart. Not the way he wanted. And he couldn't do that. Not with her. Her terms were unacceptable, her barriers too high.”
Jessica Scott, Until There Was You

“You can regret the end of her life forever. Or you can remember her and honor the life she lived.”

“So that’s the way it is, then.” His words were not a question. The door closed quietly behind him, leaving her cold to the bone, hollowed out and empty. Leaving her alone. Just like always.”
