About Me


A. Scott Zechlin — Website / Goodreads
Born and raised just north of Seattle, I am a Pacific Northwesterner at heart. I attended the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma for my BA in Creative Writing, where I also nurtured special interests in Gothic literature and pretty much everything related to the Victorian era. I later earned both an MFA in Writing for Children and an MS in Library and Information Science from Simmons University in Boston.

As a public librarian, I specialize in youth services and readers’ advisory. As an author, I gravitate towards YA and NA genre fiction with queer characters and lots of research. In addition to being a writer and a librarian, I am also a passionate teacher with experience delivering instruction in both academic and creative writing.

I write all of our book club prep and discussion question posts, as well as any reviews and recommendations. My friend Colleen is the other member of World’s Smallest Book Club.

My pronouns are she/her.
