Career is no horror story

FORMER Bundaberg resident Adrian Scott could be one of the most prolific writers to emerge from the region.

Now living with his wife in retirement at Caboolture, Mr Scott has written 20 novels and is working on his 21st.

He has had five novels published so far online at Renaissance e-Books, all in the horror genre and most centring on a family of werewolves.

Some of his output can be put down to his discipline and the hours he works.

“I work every night from midnight to five in the morning, which I suppose is appropriate for a horror writer,” Mr Scott said.

“It’s the best time of the day to work, as there are no disturbances from traffic or callers, and I can get three to five thousand words written in peace.”

Mr Scott taught at Bundaberg College of TAFE in the mid-1980s as a creative writing and journalism tutor.
