SIDELIGHTS: Scott Nicholson told CA: "I often write about matters of faith and the strange workings of the human heart. I work mostly in the genres of suspense, horror, and fantasy, with a little science fiction and mystery on the side. Nothing is more fascinating to me than people, so all of my fiction is character-oriented. My goal in life is to someday tell the perfect story."
