Andrew Scott Bassett was born in the deserts of Arizona and raised in Northern California with a fishing pole in one hand and a bobber in the other. Much of his writing comes from real-life experiences. In his debut novel, Fishing for Something, he recounts these tales using love, passion, human understanding, and, of course, a full tackle box.

One Woman's Journey Through the 20th Century
Released: February 2023
Genre: NovelsRosey had a front-row seat in a changing world, but she soon left her seat to push for change, real change. In doing this, Rosey showed her son, the author, the courage needed to fight the obstacles holding him back in his own life. Her life became his greatest story, the story he had to tell.
As she told her soldier husband, the man who broke her heart, “the point is, husband of mine, I never cheated on you, even though you and the Army left me alone for all those years. I spent more than half our marriage being more married to an idea than a man. I think you should say to me, thank you for your service, isn’t that what some people say to you, who respect what you went through in Vietnam? Well, I went through a lot here at home, and I think I deserve the same consideration.”
See history through a new set of eyes in The Rosey View Of The World, the new historical drama written by Andrew Scott Bassett. It’s a history lesson for our time as we witness the events of the twentieth century that shaped our world today. From the beginning of World War II, the Cold War that soon followed, and the war that tore our nation apart, the Vietnam War, it’s all here in this exciting new tale of one woman’s journey to empowerment. Rosey lived the civil rights movement of the 50s and ’60s, as well as the battle for women’s equality that came next, she did this all with her moral compass intact and her stiff British upper lip for the world to see. From the birth of Beatlemania to the king of rock and roll, to the dignity of Martin Luther King Jr., and even the hope of Kennedy’s Camelot, it’s all here in one amazing story.
Fishing for Something

When a letter with a mysterious request arrives along with the news of their father’s passing, the brothers are launched into a whirlwind fishing trip across America. But this is no ordinary trip. On this expedition John and Audie Barrett will be casting out for much more than they ever bargained for. The discoveries they reel in about themselves, the women they love, and even their father, will change their lives forever.
