Sally Scott wrote her first novel as an 11-year-old. It was a Famous Five pastiche and every word was precious. She kept writing cosies until an arts degree led to experimentation with short stories, none of them publishable, but joyous to write. Then 'adulting' happened and creative writing gave way to a career in academia, jobs as a weapons systems contractor and her own business development consultancy. Fromage is the first novel in the Alex Grant series. Sally is currently working on the second book, Oranges and Lemons.
