Hi, I've been interested in writing since I was five years old, and have written poetry and several short stories. It might interest you to know that I have a degree in Molecular Biology (an M.A.) and 50 credits out of 60 towards my PhD in Biology. Furthermore, I am accredited by the American Translator's Association for German to English translation and have worked for many years as a freelance translator. Translating from German to English has honed my writing skills. I'm also highly proficient in art - drawing and creating sketches.

Scott Westmoreland received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Illustration from Cal State Fullerton in 1991. He immediately served as an artist/designer for the entertainment industry---creating original posters, programs, brochures and multi-use images for major theatrical productions nation-wide, including the Broadway stage. Scott served as a comprehensive artist for motion picture advertisers including Cimarron/Bacon/O’Brien, and Think Spa, as well as a regular contractor for the Walt Disney Company and MCA Universal. From 1996 to 2001, he was a salaried staff artist for Disney, designing and illustrating countless marketing, merchandising, and collector edition pieces, as well as conceptual and developmental campaigns for (then CEO) Michael Eisner. In 2002, he concentrated his efforts in the fine art arena, signing with major publishers like Sagebrush Fine Art, and Greg Young Publishing, who print his beach, tropical and surf paintings, and subsequently license the art for products (currently some 150) including calendars, puzzles, wallpaper and murals, clocks, 3-D sculptures, coasters, tapestries, pillows, tin signs, clothing and much, much more. An international Best-Seller, his work has been seen on television shows like Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana”, NBC’s “Friday Night Lights,” ABC Family’s “Knock First,” Fox’s “Trading Spouses,” “Visiting…with Huell Howser,” HGTV’s “House Hunters International,” ABC News, as well as feature films like “Hop,” and “Snow Buddies.” Scott has graced the covers (and featured articles) of publications like “Art Business News,” “Décor,” “Orange Coast,” and “Total Art Licensing.” In addition, he publishes his own limited edition signed and numbered works (giclee on canvas), for sale in galleries and fine home furnishing stores. Scott has an extensive background in the arts, having also been a professional actor in film, television, and on stage. His latest venture is as a published author, where his debut novel, Bounty for Booth is available on Amazon.com. He resides in Southern California with his wife and two children.

Writing is my life. I keep journals and do creative writing groups at my son's school. I encourage my own children to write and express their feelings with words. I believe that words and expressing your thoughts is a tool that no one can take away from you. It is the core of your individuality. I live in Texas currently, but I am looking to relocate to a colder climate state. I have a wonderful husband and family, I am very blessed.
