His story-telling abilities have been refined in a variety of writing fields. With over two hundred published articles to his credit, he has also written daytime television, edited Western fiction with sufficient panache to win the prestigious Golden Spur Award in four consecutive years (roughly equivalent to the Nebula or Hugo for Western fiction), and has written several SF short stories, notably "Distress Signals" (with Katherine Kurtz, in The Fleet: Crisis, ed. David Drake & Bill Fawcett, Ace, 1991), "Deadfall" (in Battlestation Book Two: Vanguard, ed. David Drake and Bill Fawcett, Ace, 1993) and "1941" (in Tales of the Knights Templar, ed. Katherine Kurtz, Warner Aspect 1995). February 1993 saw his debut as a novelist, with the publication by Roc of Knights of the Blood (formerly known under its working title of "Nazi Vampires from Hell"). It was soon followed by a sequel, At Sword's Point.
In the mould of the Victorian Renaissance man, this one-time honorary Consul for Poland has raised Lipizzan horses, races Can-Am cars, worked as a mounted police officer, served as a reserve Army officer (without pay), and has little patience for those who say they don't have time to do the things they want to do.
In addition to his writing and story-telling activities, Scott's interests also run to vintage motor cars, Scottish and Irish castles, heraldry, military history, arms and armour, Chivalry (past, present and future), the Divine Right of Kings, the motion picture industry and the advantages of being selectively intolerant.
Scott is married to author Katherine Kurtz.
