Scott Howell is a native of Redlands, California and continues to maintain ties to the home country by running in the annual "Run through Redlands" 10K run.  His transition to Orange County began when he attended UC Irvine and earned a B.A.​ in history.  Then, following the advice of Herman Melville, he decided to see the watery part of the world by touring the Atlantic with the United States Navy.  No longer desiring to be called Ishmael, he returned to UC Riverside and finished a MA and Ph.D. in history.  Ultimately, posing as an authority on Colonial America and England, he was able to reenter Orange County in the guise of a historian.
