Get to know Sean...
Birthday? One December too long ago to mention
When did you start writing? As a teenager.
When and what and where did you first get published? My first publication was in Musings, the Massey University Literary Magazine, while I was studying at the university in my early twenties.
What themes do you like to write about? Where humanity is headed, and why families can be so tricky to navigate.
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work?
Mervyn Peake’s Ghormengast books stayed with me for a long time because of their wonderful, dark and decaying world. Geoffrey A. Landis’s novella “The Sultan of The Clouds” is another, with a remarkable world and tense action. I do find myself trying to create rich worlds, with quirky characters.
