Apple Ardent Scott has been telling stories since her childhood. She grew up the daughter of a Southern Baptist Minister and both enjoyed and endured moving in and out of several states, cities and subcultures until settling in the Midwest in her late 20's. Her first published piece was a poem, complete with misspellings, in her 2nd grade paper. From there, she gained the confidence to write many more poems, songs and stories. Her favorite genres are horror and thriller, so it's only natural that she migrated toward the dark side of fiction. She gains a great deal of satisfaction by making others squirm.
