My name is Scott Claus but in my artistic pursuits I usually go by "S. Claus." I think it's rather catchy, I like that it leaves a person guessing who--and WHAT--I must be and, well, I think it's funny!
Some years ago when I was trying to get my tween-fantasy novel published (cough...still am...cough) I attended a huge (and, cough, very *expensive*) conference for aspiring writers in the children's book genre. A published author whose name I have unfortunately forgotten gave a brilliant speech at this conference and shared a quote I liked a lot, it went something like this:
"No one is interested in your life story/ not even your closest friend/ the only thing anyone really wants to know/ is when your story will end."
Hopefully I can provide biographical information that will be of use beyond just a listing of my personal details...I hope to inspire and inform...at the least I'll try to entertain!
