Who Am I?

Dec102011_1sqMy name is Scott Semegran and I live in Austin, Texas. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in English. I'm a writer, a cartoonist, and a webmaster. I am a Kindle bestselling author. I can also bend metal with my mind and run really fast, if chased by a pack of wolves. This web site is here to entertain you with my fiction work, blog, comic strips, and cartoons. I hope you enjoy my creative work.

If you like novels, then look for The Meteoric Rise of Simon Burchwood. On his way to New York to celebrate his impending literary success, Simon Burchwood is the prototypical American careerist. But a quick detour to Montgomery, Alabama to visit a childhood friend sends Simon on a bizarre journey, challenging his hopes and dreams of becoming a famous writer. This is a character study that delves into the psyche of a man who desperately tries to redefine himself. Is Simon pompous? Yes. A jerk? Yes. Will you like him? Absolutely! "The book is told entirely from Simon’s viewpoint. Simon is not a very likable guy; as a matter of fact, he is a self-centered, pompous jerk. But for some reason, it’s pretty fun to be inside his head, mainly because he is an inadvertent, oblivious jerk... you will learn Simon’s views on smoking, cleanliness and going to the bathroom, just to name a few. There were times that I laughed out loud... A very good novel that was humorous throughout." 4 and 1/2 Stars - Red Adept Reviews. The Meteoric Rise of Simon Burchwood is available through Lulu.com and Amazon.com in paperback, as well as various eBook retailers. Check out my Books page for links to buy and download my novel or search for it in your eReader's book store. This novel was inducted into the Indie eBook Hall of Fame and also named one of the "5 Best Summer Indie Beach Reads" by the Huffington Post.

Just finished a short story I've been working on for a few months. Now I'm going to let those 12,254 words marinate a week before I edit. :)

I'm a 25 year Austin resident, a big music lover, I work downtown, and I support all things Austin but this needs to be said: fuck SXSW.

Waited too long to buy Texas Craft Brewers Fest tickets. It's now sold out. Oh well, I'll drink craft brew at home with the wife. Prost!
