In addition to having published poetry and short stories, Riley Scott has worked as a grant and press writer and a marketing professional. She holds a degree in journalism. A chunk of life spent in the Bible Belt has given her a close-up look at the struggles facing the LGBT community in Small Town, America, and she strives to bring these to light through her writing. Although she recently moved to Florida, she is a proud New Mexican with a passion for her partner (who, if you'll note, is listed ahead of green chile), green chile, dogs, and lively literature. She lives in Pensacola with her partner and two beloved dogs.
