Nothing in her educational background or work experience influenced an interest in ancient Egypt as much as the confluence of three elements--"My father, Kermit J. Scott, loved to read about the ancient world. He had a special hero, Pharaoh Akhenaten, the first person in recorded history to set forth the concept of monotheism." Scott recalls being admonished by her father, to learn of the great thinkers of ancient times. "My father even named my youngest sister after Akhenaten's mother, the Great Queen Tiye."
A native of California, Scott received a Bachelor's degree at University of California at Berkeley and completed Master's degree coursework at California State University, San Francisco. Scott began a professional career as a teacher and has been a manager, a television and radio announcer. Most importantly, Scott has always been a writer, working for many years at the LOS ANGELES TIMES, she is now completing a book on Egypt.
