Always interested in the arts, S.L. Scott grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and wiled her days away lost in a good book and the movies.

With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the worlds those characters lived in were actually the flawed ones. This dynamic of leaving the reader invested in the words, inspired Scott to start writing with emotion while interjecting an underlying passion into her own stories.

Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s

Hi Veronica, thank you for reading my book and for the thoughtful question.

Here's my take on their relationship: I wrote their scenes as if they hadn't had sex. It was something he was avoiding, but how does one avoid it when they're dating for months? So when a drunken conversation between them turned sexual, he avoided having sex with her by distracting her with something else she wanted - the key to his place. He was basically placating her. Not maliciously. I just truly believe he wasn't ready for that level of intimacy with anyone other than Grace, and deep down didn't want to. But he did care about Rebecca. He just took it slow - super slow - and she was patient enough in that area (all areas really) to stick it out with him and wait.

Thanks again and hope this helps the debate.

Fear of what I already know I’m willing to do for him.
Fear of what lies ahead when I find out that first name.
Fear of the trouble that’s wrapped as tightly as the leather across his shoulders.
Fear of everything he possesses.
Fear of never getting this chance again.
Without fear, I walk right into his life, hands shaking and starting to sweat.
