M.J Scott is a RITA® Award nominated author. She is an unrepentant bookworm. Luckily she grew up in a family that fed her a properly varied diet of books and these days is surrounded by people who are understanding of her story addiction. When not wrestling one of her own stories to the ground, she can generally be found reading someone else’s. Her other distractions include yarn, cat butlering, dark chocolate and fabric. She lives in Melbourne, Australia.

She also writes contemporary romance as Melanie Scott. http:www.melanie-scott.net


Another interesting year in the world, about which maybe the less said the better. But thank goodness there are always books to provide distraction, entertainment, information and joy.

“He was so full of life and confidence part of me wanted to slap him. But another part wanted to let him show me how to feel like that. That part made me want to slap myself.”
M.J. Scott, Shadow Kin

“I wasn‘t talking to Simon. Talking might lead to something foolish like wanting to kiss him again. Or punch him. One of the two.”
M.J. Scott, Shadow Kin

“In that case, maybe you‘d be so kind as to leave me alone and let me sleep?"
"I want to talk to you."
Lords of hell. More talking.”
M.J. Scott, Shadow Kin
