Greetings to you! I'm a journalist, blgoger, poet, and author in various genres, most notably crime fiction, although I also write speculative fiction, romance, and non-genre stories. I'm incredibly honored that my stories have won the Dillydoun Flash Fiction Prize, SMFS Derringer, Noir Nation Golden Fedora, and Gemini Awards. I've also been longlisted for the New Writers Flash Competition and Fish Short Story Prize; shortlisted for Flash 500 Quarterly and Anthology Magazine short story awards; and chosen as a finalist for the Pulpfictional Flash Contest and Tucson Festival of Books Literary Competition. My Scott Drayco novels have been a featured Library Journal pick and finalists for Shamus, Silver Falchion, Daphne, and Foreword Book Reviews Awards. If you've already purchased one or more of my books, thank you so much! If not, hop on over to and check out all the latest publications and news. But if you'd also like to buy me a virtual cup of coffee, I would be incredibly grateful. Your support helps keep the lights on and all the Scott Drayco stories and blog posts coming.
