Western Short Stories Bio. of Scott Gese

Scott Gese aka Christopher Scott

Scott was forced to start writing seriously at age fifty. Up until that point, a grocery list was his biggest writing achievement. 

In 2006 he started this website to promote western authors and their work. It's currently enjoyed by over 160 countries worldwide.

It was his need to add content to the new site that forced him to start writing short stories.

Since those early days, Scott has written books, blog posts, magazine articles and hundreds of short stories. He even wrote a newspaper column for awhile. 

You can find many of Scott's short stories and western articles scattered throughout the pages of this site.

Scott also enjoys Photography. You can find his writing and photo portfolio HERE>>
