For over thirty-five years, Bev specialized in serving executives and managers as a leadership coach and organizational consultant. She taught organization psychology and founded The 3rd Act, a program whose mission supports positive aging. Moving into her own third act, she began a genealogical journey to uncover the details of her grandparents' lives. She concluded that the story needed to be told as fiction using the known facts as her framework. Sarah's Secret: A Western Tale of Betrayal and Forgiveness, Bev's debut novel, is the culmination of her long-held desire to tell the family story and confirm the whispered rumors about her grandfather.
Bev previously focused on publishing non-fiction work, including the second edition of Consulting on the Inside, which she co-authored with Kim Barnes, published in 2011. She has written numerous professional articles and contributed to 70 Things to Do When You Turn 70 edited by Ronnie Sellers and Mark Chimsky. Bev blogs on several sites, including her own, "The Writing Life" on www.bevscott.com.
Bev enjoys traveling, visiting with friends, reading and spending time with her grandsons. She lives with her spouse in San Francisco.
