Hi, I’m Sean. I live on the seacoast in New Hampshire with my wonderful fiancé. By day, I work in sales and marketing for an IT company. By night, I write. I started writing when I was fourteen or so, and in 2008 I graduated from Emerson College with a degree in Writing, Literature and Publishing. The years since have been busy—working full time, moving our life from Boston to NH and heavily renovating our new home, being a devoted dog dad, and a whole lot more. Through all of it, I always found the time to write—and I always will. 

I completed my first major project about five years ago, a sci-fi/fantasy novel called One Hundred Million Faces. I remember how excited I was, the sense of accomplishment I felt after bouncing from unfinished manuscript to unfinished manuscript. The story just flowed from me, and my passion for the characters and the world I created carried me to the finish line.

Sadly, my enthusiasm did not survive a sixteen-hour flight to Thailand. It was then that I began to dive into my first real edits—and boy did it need them. The structure was there, but as any writer can tell you, your first pass rarely survives your own criticism. So, I dug in my heels and began rewrites. I don’t think a single line was untouched. I probably wrote the same book three or four times over. Then I let a friend read it (thanks Megan) and went through another round of rewrites inspired by her critiques and suggestions.

At this point I was ready to get it out there. Unfortunately, publishers weren’t. I think about ten passed on it, which was a bummer but no real surprise considering it was an unsolicited manuscript from an unpublished author. It was what I expected since penning my first query letter. Agents were no easier to come by given my lack of presence in the publishing world and no shorter published works or essays to reference. So, it just sat there for a couple of years while I moved onto my next project (which is going well!).

Yet I got to a point where I could not let it sit anymore. I love this project and believe in it enough to get it out there—and my future projects can only benefit from having it visible. Therefore, I have decided to move forward and self-publish. It’s not the path any writer dreams of taking, but it’s better than letting my work sit unread, as if it didn’t exist in the first place.

I’ve always been an introvert and a private person, so the thought of getting my work out there is pretty terrifying, which has motivated me to do it right. I have dedicated a section of this site to One Hundred Million Faces, with a synopsis, character profiles (along with sketches by the insanely talented Sam Robichaud), location summaries, and in the coming weeks I will be posting the first chapter in its entirety.

Release is planned for Summer 2023, and an exact date and pre-order link will be posted shortly. Also, check out my blog for an explanation on my pen name, and keep checking back for updates. I have never been much of a blogger, but I have a lot of thoughts about why I write and how I write and my love of the sci-fi genre.

I can’t thank you enough for your time, I genuinely love this book and cannot wait to share it with you.
