Award winning author, Scott Thompson, grew up in Georgia, and it is the South that has inspired his stories. Through fiction he explores love, friendship, and family, and how tragedy and life events affect these relationships.
Thompson’s favorite poem is “A Rolling Stone” by Robert W. Service. In this poem of freedom and exploration Service writes “I want to see it all,” and that sums of Scott’s life: He wants to see and do everything.
This seeking has brought him to more than a few adventures that find their way into his fiction. What he’s discovered through his exploration is that there is more magic in the universe than we can imagine. But he truly believes that we’re offered glimpses into heaven almost daily if we’ll take the time to look, and through his book, Eight Days, he explores some of the glimpses that make it worth living.
Thompson lives in Colorado with his family. His work can be read in regional magazines, in his short stories, and in his first novel, Young Men Shall See. Thompson is a founding editor at Grand Central Review.
Scott Thompson is a Georgia author now living in Colorado. His writing can be read in regional publications, short stories, and in his novels. His latest novel, Eight Days, follows a man after death into eternity.
Award winning author Scott Thompson grew up in the South, a region that influenced his first two novels greatly. In Young Men Shall See he studied the effects of the racial divide on the youth of the 1980s, and how two races, who were together geographically, but divided socially, learned to accept one another. In Eight Days, a novel about life and the afterlife, we followed a man as he faced his reckoning, a process of reviewing one’s life before moving to eternity. Thompson’s writing often digs into what makes us human, and how we become better people through adversity and challenges.
Thompson’s writing has been published in various magazines and has been featured in short story publications, an anthology, and online. He is a founding editor of Grand Central Review, and worked closely with Pulitzer Prize nominated author Richard Monaco. Thompson now lives near Denver with his family.
