Author


 

Laura Lis Scott is the author of The Candidate's Maid books, as well as the upcoming science fiction space opera, Half the Sky.

Laura has BA from The University of Chicago and an MFA from Columbia University of New York, and has taken courses at UC Berkeley, UCLA, and HB Studio in New York. She has studied with Brian Moore, Wayne C. Booth, Jascha Kessler, Richard Stern, Frank Daniel, Salem Ludwig, Brad Dourif, Ralph Rosenblum, Bedrich Batka, Vojtěch Jasný, John G. Avildsen, Francis X. Kinahan, Riccardo Levi-Setti, Monte Lloyd, and Andrew Sarris.

Over the years, Laura has waited tables, delivered campus mail, driven a truck (more like a van), wordprocessed business and legal documents, written and produced videos, produced B-movie trailers, directed television, designed and developed websites, edited magazine articles, created logos, blogged amateurly (often amateurishly) and professionally, co-founded a few companies, served on non-profit boards, raced cars (on actual racetracks – street racing is dumb), and written a handful of stories. She has lived in New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles; now she lives in Colorado, where the sun always shines, even on the cloudy days.

The Candidate’s Maid is her first novel. Before that, she just shouted at the television.
