HAVE A NICE TRIP?
SEE YOU NEXT FALL!
Attending their daughter's wedding in South Africa promised to be the vacation of a lifetime. But first, they had to face the treacherous gauntlet known as modern day travel. Join this hapless, sometimes helpless couple as they brave their way through a never-ending obstacle course filled with such hazards as flight delays, the purgatory of layovers and an incompetent, uncaring air carrier that treats its passengers worse than their luggage. Waiting for them on the other side of the world are an honest-to-goodness safari with amorous lions and elephants with anger issues, a life-affirming visit to a South African school and an anxious bride and groom, standing patiently at the airport with a sign that reads: "WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG? "
PLEASE HOLD THUMBS: A NOT-SO-ROUND TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA, a true tale of turbulence and triumph

Scott’s first book, the non-fiction memoir IN THE DARK: A LIFE AND TIMES IN A MOVIE THEATER, was published in 2003. This was followed by a collection of original comedy sketches entitled NOW THAT’S FUNNY!, his first novel, RED ASPHALT, the travel journal, PLEASE HOLD THUMBS: A NOT-SO-ROUND TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA and his latest, SONG OF THE CANYON KID, a western comedy romance.
