Three Days and Two Knights
Scott Davis Howard
Scott holds an MA in British literature from the University of Montana, Missoula (2008), is an Agnes Meyer Teacher of the Year nominee, and was a semifinalist in the 2014 Norman Mailer Writing Contest for Educators. He spends his days regaling his 12th grade students with thrilling tales about Beowulf, Sir Gawain, Macbeth, and Dorian Gray, and his nights ferrying his offspring between the soccer field and Cub Scout meetings. In his rare moments of quiet (when the children are eating snacks in the van, spilling crumbs all over the carpet), he wonders when and how he became a soccer mom. He wrote the original draft of his debut novel, Three Days and Two Knights, on an outdated laptop, standing in his kitchen with an infant strapped to his chest.
