Local Author Awarded UTAH WRITER OF THE YEAR
SALT LAKE CITY—Angela Scott was named Utah Writer of the Year at the League of Utah Writers awards ceremony, Saturday, September 14, 2013. The League of Utah Writers is nearly 500 members strong with 16 chapters across the state and has been going strong for 77 years.
"It's a great honor and more than humbling to be awarded Utah Writer of the Year. It is an incredible feeling to have my efforts recognized by those I highly admire," Scott said of the award. "The plaque is a visual reminder of how far I've come in a short period of time."
Scott also received a League of Utah Gold Quill Award for her young adult contemporary novel, Desert Rice, at this year's conference. The Gold Quill is the league's highest award in the General Fiction category.
Although it's not what Scott set out to be known for, she is best recognized as an author of zombie novels. What started as a simple writing exercise between friends has spiraled into a three-book deal with Evolved Publishing and has since received numerous awards. The first book in the series, WANTED: Dead or Undead, has been the recipient of the Kindle Book Reviews Best Indie Book Award, League of Utah Writers Gold Quill Award in 2012, USA Best Book Awards Finalist, and Second Place in the 2012 Sharp Writ Book Awards.
The Zombie West Series, which Scott refers to as a "young adult western romance... with added zombie mayhem for flare" has been received well not only in her Utah community but across the nation, and has even been picked up by readers in other countries.
"The zombie genre isn't dead yet," she joked."It is a popular phenomenon, from movies to television shows to books and even commercials, and I'm grateful to be a small part of it."
Angela Scott, who was born and raised in Utah, lives along the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with her husband and three zombie-loving kids. She received her B.A. in English from Utah State University, and is the award-winning author of four books with the fifth, Dead Plains, the final installment in The Zombie West Series, being published October 2013.
