Lies

Born when gasoline was only 33 cents per gallon, Robert studied music at Colby College before turning to education. He completed a doctorate at the University of Northern Colorado, because at the time writing 300 pages that no one would read seemed like a good idea. He was named one of Prince William County’s inaugural Poets Laureate in 2014.His most recent novel, Emails from Jennifer Cooper tackles the myriad challenges facing women who choose divorce in middle age, and his first collection of poetry, 3:17 a.m. was released in 2015. Scott has been a middle school teacher, a high school assistant principal, and a principal. Heworks now as an AP Capstone teacher, so he rarely escapes his classroom. He appreciates visitors stopping by because they sometimes bring breakfast and news of the outside world.Scott is happiest when his students agree to trade their iPhones for a story or two from Edgar Poe.

He is a guitarist and a distance runner (rarely simultaneously) whose goals include running all the way across South Dakota. Sadly, he is only permitted three personal leave days, so he contents himself with lots of monotonous laps of Burke Lake instead. He distrusts multinational pharmaceutical and food production corporations but sometimes eats donuts as if they were invented yesterday afternoon.Scott has two children involved in school, sports, music, and theater. Most days one can find him taxiing about the region, a mini tape recorder in hand and a laptop under one arm. He drinks entirely too much coffee and often shouts at 24-hour news channels.
