Ginger Scott is a writer and journalist from Peoria, Arizona. Her debut novel, “Waiting on the Sidelines,” is a coming-of-age love story that explores the real heartbreak we all feel as we become adults throughout our high school years. The story follows two characters, Nolan (a Tomboy with a boy’s name) and Reed (the quarterback she wishes would notice her), as they struggle with peer-pressure, underage drinking, bullying and finding a balance between what your heart wants and what society says you should want—even if you aren’t ready.  The follow-up sequel, “Going Long,” is out now, and available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo and more.

Scott has been writing and editing for newspapers, magazines, and blogs for more than 15 years. She has told the stories of Olympians, politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals, and towns. For more on her and her work, visit her website at www.littlemisswrite.com.

When she’s not writing, the odds are high that she’s somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her 10-year-old field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Scott is married to her college sweetheart, whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).

What’s  Ginger Scott’s Inspiration?

“It’s impossible to settle on just one book or author. I’m inspired by Fitzgerald’s bravery in Gatsby and the raw honesty at the heart of Judy Blume’s coming-of-age story Forever. When it comes to more contemporary authors, I’m inspired by how real Curtis Sittenfeld’s book Prep is—this story doesn’t pull any punches in how it captures adolescence and young emotion, and that’s something I constantly reminded myself of throughout my writing process.”

What are Ginger Scott’s books about?

Waiting on the Sidelines

WaitingCover11-13

Nolan Lennox is a girl with a boy’s name, and she’s always been fine with that. Her great expectations for high school collapse on her when she’s teased and tortured by the cruel popular girl, who only makes Nolan’s wounds deeper by dating the quarterback and hometown hero who has stolen Nolan’s heart. Can Nolan strike a compromise between her own integrity and the boy she loves? And can she make him notice her before it’s too late?
 
Waiting on the Sidelines is a story of hope, honesty and those powerful, first true loves—the ones worth holding onto at any cost.

Blindness

20347484

It takes a while to know who you really are. And when you lose your way, sometimes it’s hard to find it again.

Charlie Hudson was on the verge of figuring that out when her dad—the only parent and friend she ever had—died suddenly. She was barely 18, and she was alone. So she went for easy—playing life safe, running away from a home that harbored nothing but bad memories and challenges, and loving a man who would take her away from it all forever.

It’s funny how chance takes over when you need it most. And that’s exactly what brought Cody Carmichael into her life. A former motocross super star, Cody was now happy to be living the blue-collar life, spending his days finishing up school and his nights under the hood of some classic car, just trying to keep everything his father taught him alive. Cody and Charlie were living parallel lives, until they finally collided. And the moment he smiled at her, Charlie knew he was the one who would change everything. But was she willing to take the risk?

Cody saw through it all. He saw her—all of her. But would letting him in be too much to take? And if Charlie let herself love him—really love him—could he love her back?

How We Deal With Gravity

918OrX5-oeL._SL1500_

When her son Max was diagnosed with autism, Avery Abbot’s life changed forever. Her husband left, and her own dreams became a distant fantasy—always second to fighting never-ending battles to make sure Max was given opportunity, love, and respect. Finding someone to fight along side her wasn’t even on her list; she’d come to terms with the fact that she could never be her own priority again.

But a familiar face walking into her life in the form of 25-year-old Mason Street had Avery’s heart waging a war within. Mason was a failure. When he left his hometown five years ago, he was never coming back—it was only a matter of time before his records hit the billboard charts. Women, booze, and rock-n-roll—that was it for him. But it seemed fate had a different plan in mind, and with a dropped record contract, little money, and nowhere to go, Mason turned to the only family that ever made him feel home—the Abbots.

Avery loved Mason silently for years—until he broke her heart…completely. But time and life have a funny way of changing people, and sometimes second chances are there for a reason. Could this one save them both?
