Scott Forbes Crawford - Novelist, Historian, Author

Scott Forbes Crawford

When at age eight Scott moved with his family from Washington, DC to Tokyo, a new world of
discovery and challenge opened to him. Enchanted by Japanese culture as a boy, the spell of
foreign lands only deepened when as an adult Scott settled in Beijing, where he became an
author (and a father).

Scott is the author of the novel Silk Road Centurion, The Han-Xiongnu War, 133 BC–89 AD: The
Struggle of China and a Steppe Empire Told Through Its Key Figures, and numerous fantasy,
adventure, and mystery short stories. He’s also an award-winning poet. With his wife Alexis
Kossiakoff he wrote the forthcoming historical fantasy novel The Phoenix and the Firebird.

Scott and Alexis live in Japan with their daughter.
