I was born in Portland, Oregon in 1951 and grew up in Sandpoint, Idaho. I’ve earned degrees from Stanford University and the University of Washington, and have worked—full– or, as currently, part–time—as a lawyer since 1976.

My interest in creative writing predates the start of my first novel, Beyond the Sand Creek Bridge (2012), which was thirty years in the making. At present, I’m pleased to be riding a robust wave of creative energy. It has been a long time coming, but it’s here now, and I feel blessed to have the time and capacity to make the most of it.

Sid Tafler Scott,
"human beings—all of us—are both different and the same (we are made up of both human differences and human “samenesses”); that, when we encounter one another, we are (for very natural reasons) drawn to and mesmerized by the human differences we see in “other” (including some that we share)"
I find this an interesting--and different--take on the theme of my memoir Us and Them, which is about learning to deal with people's differences as a child and adult. Thanks for this new insight and for inspiring me about your 30-year journey to publish your first novel. I'm dealing with frustration after "only" 4 years.
