Alan Scott began writing seriously when he was young, finishing his first book, The Will of Our Times, when he was just 19 and attending Oswego State College in New York. He has continued writing when he could, penning poetry, essays, short stories, novels and an informational guide for kindergarteners written with Elise Scott. But teaching elementary school on Long Island, giving piano lessons and raising 2 sons, left little time for writing. ""I guess I got caught up in the crab-grass culture,"" he says. After retiring 25 years ago and moving to Wellington, Florida, it took several months before Scott ""got totally bored"" and realized he had to do something productive. A piano major in college he started giving piano lessons again and composing. He also went back to writing. He has composed the music for Cottage Theater Players' production of Risen. Scott also performed his own Rhapsody for piano and orchestra for the Palm Beach Music Teachers Association. For the past six years he has resided in Miami Beach, Florida where he continues to write.

One of the most powerful books of poetry I have read in a long time. Scott writes the way it is and his style is
right on the nail.Everyone should have a chance to read it.
