A Colorado native, Scott divides his time between the Rocky Mountain communities of Evergreen and
Grand Lake. He is the author of several novels and plays.
He was the recipient of The Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Colorado Gold award for best general fiction
and won the Steven Dietz Original Playwriting Competition in 2005 for his full-length play, Someone
Else’s Life, which was subsequently performed in Denver the following year. It was reviewed in the
October 29, 2006 edition of Variety, which stated, “Gibson’s work professes nothing more than to ask
questions about our lives. He builds the stakes without the gratuitous, heavy-handed devices that seem
to be the modus operandi these days, relying instead on the hidden and unspoken.”
His short play, The Last Good Day, was a winner in the Long Island Public Access Television Original
Playwriting Competition and was filmed for broadcast in June, 2008, with subsequent airings in
Connecticut and California.
In March and April of this year, his play The Kitchen Fairy was performed at Theatre Three in New
York. Additionally, his works have been performed in Seattle, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego,
Albuquerque, Colorado Springs, Dallas, Houston, Tampa, Manhattan, St. Paul, and Evergreen.
He is the author of five novels, including A Year in Stucker’s Reach, of which Kirkus Discoveries said, “In
his long but surprisingly engrossing novel about rebuilding lives after traumatic loss, Gibson brings a
small Colorado town to life without sentimentality or condescension. …There is nothing cutesy or quirky
about these characters, yet their nuanced decency is undeniably powerful.”
In his free time, Scott is an avid hiker and jogger, and volunteers with The Rocky Mountain Repertory
Theatre in Grand Lake and with various local animal shelters.
