Welcome to my online world. I’m Eugene C. Scott. Scroll down to read my published work.

I’ve scribbled, dreamed, and written words into stories since I was very young. After my father passed away when I was eleven, I also took deep solace in stories. The Light in the Forest by Conrad Richter in particular guided me. Its character True Son joined me on my long road to healing. Through him, I learned new ways to think and feel.

Stories can do that to you! Because of reading and rereading that novel and a myriad more, I learned and grew and set out to write stories that entertained, enlightened, and accompanied my readers on their long journeys in life.

I am currently working on a book titled Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws: A Journey through Fear to Faith as well as a novel titled Unlocking Eden’s Gate.

Consider the Aspens

Above me aspens climb the sky
Knobbly fingers intertwine
Creating a lattice of quivering lace
Painting yellow hue on cobalt face

Heart-shaped leaves collect the sun
Phosphorescence of the One
Throwing sparks of gentle light
Scattering dreams, kites in flight

Golden coins dance the swirling wind
Carefree, despite facing certain end
Laughing, landing done with toil
Surrendering to fertile soil

Leafless trunks now sway together
Dark eyes watchful of foul weather
Raising branches in hope bare
Regenerating for another year

Round me boles slant pale and stark
Picturesque, powdered bark
Touching their smooth, tender skin
Gaining God’s grace once again
