An award-winning writer, Scott Alexander Hess's gritty debut novel Diary of a Sex Addict (JMS Books) made several hot read lists and was called “relentlessly erotic and divinely written” by Richard Labonte of Bookmarks. The book was made into a short film. His latest novels are The Jockey, set in prohibition era New York City, and Three Brothers, about the fractured relationship of a trio of men set in Hell’s Kitchen circa 1930. His fiction has appeared in Thema Literary Journal, and Omnia Revitas Review and his screenplay The Blood of Saints was optioned in 2010. He blogs for the Huffington Post Books Section, contributes to The Fix and has an essay appearing in a collection by Leslie Smith coming out March 2013 (Magnus Books). Scott is a MFA graduate of The New School.
