Ronnie Scott is a writer, editor, historian, researcher, tutor and tour guide. Not, of course, in that order and very seldom all at once. I have been self employed for 20 years, working mainly in corporate communications for well-known names in the public and private sector.

As a writer, my most prominent by-lines have been in Hello! magazine and the lesser-known but just as influential Bite Me magazine. I have also written for newspapers, corporate videos, slide presentations, the web and interactive media. I have also ghost-written speeches and magazine articles.

I have a BA in English literature and Sociology, an MPhil in Scottish culture and a PhD in Scottish history (my research topic was the origins and development of the Glasgow Necropolis, 1825 to 1855). I have written Death by Design: The True Story of the Glasgow Necropolis (Edinburgh: Black & White Publishing, 2005), and edited Tommy’s War:  A First World War Diary, 1913-1918 (London: HarperPress, 2008), Tommy’s Peace: A Family Diary, 1919-1932 (Edinburgh: Mainstream, 2009), and The Real ‘Dad’s Army’: The War Diaries of Colonel Rodney Foster (London: Penguin Viking, 2011).
