Jonathan D. Scott

Jonathan D. Scott uses his middle initial not for the sake of pretention, but to distinguish himself from the hundreds of other Jonathan Scotts, many of whom have more talent than he does.

He is the owner of a small advertising and graphic design firm and lives a very ordinary life with two cats, two cars, two daughters, and one wife.

Many people would never suspect him of having a secret life as a writer, which is probably why his two published novels haven't yet made it to the NYT Bestseller list. (They are available from amazon and middletonbooks. com.)

His kindergarden teacher wrote that "he thinks he's in class not to learn but the entertain the others." Unfortunately, that's still the case.

Many of his short stories can be found in literary print and online journals.
