Scott Doornbosch died peacefully at his home in Tinley Park, IL on July 27, 2012 at the age of 60 after a long and brave struggle with cancer.
Scott published his first book, Basic Black -- A Tony Black Mystery in June, 2011 and won a Lovey Award at the 2012 Love is Murder con for Best First Novel.
"I never thought about being a writer until about 8 years ago when I was sitting on my deck having a glass of wine and an image kept popping into my head. I decided to write it down and found myself still writing after 6 hours. Of course it was the beginning of a story so I had to go back and write some more the next day. After 14 days my first book was finished."
~~ Scott Doornsbach
