Scott Russell DuncanScott Russell Duncan

Russell Scott Duncan was born in Los Angeles, California. He taught himself to read and write at age 3. He grew up in a small town near San Diego called Ramona and also in Dallas, Texas. He speaks some Spanish but is not fluent; his family, however, tends to speak Chicano English. After high school, he studied at a junior college called Richland College in Dallas, Texas. From there, he attended University of North Texas where he double majored in drawing and English. He then taught English in China, and returned to the United States to attend graduate school at Mills College in Oakland for Creative Writing. There he was given the opportunity to study with Cristina García and Carlota Caulfield. He has written numerous short stories, his preferred genre, but is currently working on a novel called the Ramona Diary of Scott Russell Duncan. A chapter is published in the 2012 summer edition of Border Senses. He is a writer today because he tried it once and got hooked. Much of his writing is labeled as "ethnic literature" but he considers it simply "literature." He is inspired by a good flash story, the ocean, disturbing art, the desert; things he says that make you want to run and stay at the same time. He is a vegetarian and is married. He and his wife have no children (yet). He enjoys hiking, camping, kayaking, Twilight Zone. He hates traveling but enjoys going places.
