Scott B. Pruden is the author of Immaculate Deception, a satirical, near-future thriller set among the beaches of South Carolina. When he's not doing things like fiddling with blogs, he's working on freelance assignments from corporate clients and magazines and working on his next (as yet untitled) novel, which promises to be just as odd as this one, only in a somewhat different way. Think of it as "Fringe" and "The X Files" meets "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."
Scott was born in Camden, S.C., and split his pre-teen and teen years between Summerville, S.C., and Wilmington, Del. He graduated from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina and had a 15-year career in the newspaper business, making his way around the Palmetto State, Delaware, Arizona and southcentral Pennsylvania. He now resides in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, Pa. He narrowly escaped the newspaper industry in 2004 to become a full-time freelance writer and novelist.
He loves talking about writing, publishing and generally shooting the bull with readers and other writers. He writes about writing and indie publishing at scottpruden.com. Feel free to like his Facebook page or follow him on Twitter at @ScottBPruden.
