A.H. Scott

"It all begins between the ears." - A.H. Scott


Draped in freedom's spirit, A.H. Scott is a sizzling scribe of unveiling sensuality. Residing in the Northeastern United States, this writer is armed with pouting pen of passion and pulsating digits pounding against keyboard. Between this lady's manicured fingers, a snaggy stylus lacerates parchment and masticates digits against a misting keyboard towards a just climax literary longing.

 She's a new voice and vision of fiction dipping her toe into the pond of publishing. 

 Her writing and art is just an extension of the passion she feels for living. Every day alive can bring something new into one beings heart and soul. Art can change the world. Be it through words, or images. Sometimes, a mixture of both can get a person to think and ponder the larger meaning of being beyond just the skin which we all live within. It could be something as simple as a single tear on a beach. Or, maybe it can be as enormous as the universe beyond the stars. It all depends on where you sit in your own psyche.



                         - My Philosophy -




"As an author, I enjoy letting my characters and plots that I've created get inside of the reader's heads. I make a promise to anyone that rolls the dice and catches a glimpse of my work that you will never be bored. Your eyes, mind and soul shall be thrilled. This is my bond to you, the reader. No simplicity ever from A.H. Scott. Always complexity is my main intent on anyone who reads my work." - A.H. Scott

“I want the reader to be affected in two ways - above the neck & below the belt”. - A.H. Scott
"I don't write for children. I write for adults". - A.H. Scott
"I believe art should be as enigmatic as the artist who creates it." A. H. Scott

"Silence is acceptance. Acceptance is conquest. Conquest is a rainbow obscured by a black cloud of contempt".

- A.H. Scott

A.H. Scott Interviews 

Naomi Shaw Guest Interview With Author A.H. Scott -


What Inspires You? What Genres Do You Write?

I mainly stay in the lane of contemporary romance and erotica. Interpersonal relationships have always fascinated me. And, I don’t mean the purely physical aspect of two bodies. It’s that little engine of the heart & soul inside which makes my characters and storylines take shape.

Now, that’s just my tame stuff.


I’ve diversified into three new avenues using pen names. One thing which is different from me writing my mainstream fiction is that these other works are multiple titles in a variety of series.


The first is a 1940’s/1950’s detective series of books. The second is a hardcore series set in contemporary Italy within a Master’s dungeon. The third is a series of books based on a secret society that dances upon that tightrope of taboo.

And, of course, this lady who writes these daring tales isn’t going to spill the trio of names which I use to explore the naughty, devilishly dominant and unspoken side of fiction on the razor’s edge of controversy.

For these books, nothing is off the table of imaginations' universe. 

A piece of music, single word whispered or even an image can strike the lightning bug inside of my soul.


Steinbeck, Hemingway, Poe, Shelley, and many of the classics are on my bookshelf. But, nestled between the literary heavyweights are Sidney Sheldon, Ken Follett, Norman Vincent Peale, Stephen King and several other more contemporary writers.


Finally, one other author has really rocked my imagination – JACKIE COLLINS!!! Her works have been flashy, splashy, spicy and fearless. Now, that’s the juicy stuff that really makes my eyes tingle as I read her books.


Romance, adventure, action, mystery, philosophy and the whole ball of wax have passed my eyes over the years.


My brain’s always going. And, flipping the script in my own writing is something I find is quite intriguing. I mean challenging myself to get a different tone or plateau seems a road worth taking.


So, the genre may just be something which will surprise even me, when pen is placed to paper and fingers fly across the keyboard. I’ve already dipped my toe into a short Western. And, it was fun. But, there might be an idea which is coming over the horizon, which will surprise those who read my work in the subject matter.


Wow, think of this – no sex and mildest violence could be a new novel penned by yours truly. (possible - possible)....

.................what’s the greatest piece of advice you would like to pass on?
I would say that you should never give up. Oh, boy, how cliche is that? But, then again, it’s true. Never give up your dreams. No matter how many people close the door of opportunity in your face. Keep on pushing forward with whatever your heart may wish. Only you can make the change in your life. Try and try again. And, maybe one day you’ll be lucky enough to have your work seen by the world...............


Romance At Heart Magazine -

....What truly motivates you in general? In your writing?

When I'm writing something, I try my best to see where it will take me. Not just thinking about what someone who reads my work will think about it. Seeing how the plot takes turns and twists, is a great motivator for not even knowing how I'll let a tale end. I'll be honest with you - it's quite liberating to know a character can say something or take an action, which will even make me as the writer, change how this being I've created will proceed.

Where do your ideas come from?

I hope this doesn't sound too weird, but for me it is just as simple as closing my eyes and starting to see the vision or imagery of what I could possibly write down.

Do you feel humour is important in women's fiction and why?

Women have to not be so brittle. And, I know that's a charged word for many women to hear. But, it's true. Let romance and desire take you to a place of releasing those old ways. Women don't have to be placed in a box of conformity and frigidity. Fiction can take a female character from being just a docile lamb to being a tigress, if she can laugh at herself and even the circumstances that surround her life on the pages of a book............

                                             Hard Or Soft: As You Like It
                                                         A.H. Scott

Taking a page from the Bard of Avon's titled, "As You Like It"; I'm diving into the choppy waters of what drives the consumer to choose soft-core romance or hardcore erotica.

In some ways, it's almost like asking why do some people like plain vanilla and others can't get enough Cherry Garcia.

There is really no concrete answer to either question.

A consumer's sensibility in the arena of sexuality is truly the key. One thing that does intrigue me is how a person would purchase my more erotic works, if they had to do it in public. Then, for me, that's the question I'd like to know the answer to. Can a smiling grandmother with white hair and chubby cheeks stand in a bookstore and ask for something really naughty to purchase, without having the eyes of displeasure hoisted upon her?

Well, it depends on who the grandma is.

Or, that stone faced businessman (you know exactly who you are out there); the one that no one would ever guess is so wicked behind closed doors in what he partakes in. Would he be the one who would go to a bookstore and purchase one of my naughtiest tales of tempestuous desire and temptation, for all the other customers to see?

Well, if that man's balls were as big in the boardroom, as they are in the bedroom, he wouldn't truly give a damn. But, then again, society would look down upon him. And that would be no matter how high a successful man he was............



Molly's Erotic Meanderings -

......... The way I see things, Molly, X is just another letter in the alphabet. Just like 69 and 96 are just numbers. It all depends on what position they are placed. Down or up, those digits rock and roll, baby.

Hypocrites always use a high hand on things they think are beneath them, when they themselves are doing things less than stellar in their own lives. (In other words - put down your stone at someone else's glass house, before a boulder boomerangs into your own backyard)

X isn't a curse, Molly. It can be a liberating sign of not conforming to what critics and prudes in our society think isn't worthy of their 'virginal' senses.

By the way, don't worry about getting flak about the porn and erotica coin, Molly. A person who is willing to expand their own horizons of what artistic vision is does not attempt to create a caste system of what touches the reader's senses.

 In fact, the most intimate part that can be reached isn't that which tingles at the thought of images conjured before their eyes; but in their psyche..........



Toni V. Sweeney -

......As a writer, it would be so easy to make every man a standard lead. Of course, he’d be Man of Steel or Man Of Green. His chiseled muscles and perfect persona would get the readers all dewy-eyed with admiration. Similarly, creating a Snidely Whiplash character who snickers with a handle-bar moustache, while watching the locomotive moving towards the tied damsel on the tracks; can be simple.

Yet, as a writer, simple can be vanilla. And, I’ve always been partial to mint chocolate chip. So, here’s the scoop from my perspective.

A hero might not have that courage and confidence, which is seen at first. In actuality, a barely visible streak of yellow peppers a trail down his back. Oh, yes - I said it. The hero can be the coward.

"You cannot be a hero without being a coward." - George Bernard Shaw......

.........4)   What are the most important elements of good writing? According to you, what tools are must-haves for writers?Plot, characters, and location are good elements. A must have in today's world is access to the internet. If not, it will be a monumental task to be published for the world to see. Another tool is an army of books. Get as many research books that you possibly can. Then make sure you have your own mini-library of thesaurus, dictionary, et. al.  

5) What motivates you to write?    For me, writing is a stress reliever. No matter how hectic the day can get, there is always an ability to take pen to paper or finger to keyboard and let the words flow..........

(Originally published September 2007 - "Saucy September")

He wanted more.

Standing there, this woman was becoming a fidgety female of impending frigidity. "What do you want me to say?"

Planting hands on either side of this counter around her and taking a straddling stance, a steely voice pounced a response. "I want you to say 'yes.Yes, I want you with me.' I want to be satisfied and you want to be fucked. And you want me to be taken care of the same way as I am. Lady, that's what I want to hear, if this is what you really desire from me, as I from you."

Holding left hand to his chest height, she compressed against white cotton and muscle, while using a flirtatious twist of a few exposed hairs around a coral painted nail, "Yeah, I do, I-I do," nervously nibbling bottom lip, while exuding a whiff of embarrassment over responding to this yearning male with a glint of girlish torment.

Games of that sort were not in his bag of temptation's tricks. Realizing it was up to this blooming blossom to determine just how far this heated harvest would ascend: "Show me, baby. Show me," speaking to her as if he were an army drill instructor.

She wanted more.

Clasping his face in hands, she delivered a forcefully placed kiss of lip saturating craving to him..........

Today, when we hear a vigorous debate over the United States Constitution, it's mostly on the plain of The Second Amendment (the right to bear arms). Alas, it’s The First Amendment, which gives us all the freedom to express ourselves as we wish.
