About the Author
Best Selling Kindle Author of The Old Man and The Princess (Now optioned to be a major motion picture)
Sean is an author from Edinburgh in Scotland. He spent most of his childhood and teenage years on the move with his Scottish and Irish Parents (No, they weren't bank robbers ) growing up in the likes of Cyprus, Germany, Wales, and England, as an army brat.
With a keen interest in both reading and writing, he was diagnosed with the travel and writing bugs very early on in life. Now, writing, traveling, reading, cinema, and Scottish football (Supporting the mighty Hibernian FC for his sins) are his main passions in life, along with cooking, yoga, meditation and health, and fitness.
His main inspiration for writing today comes from living in such a beautiful, charming and hauntingly, Gothic city, such as Edinburgh. An awe-inspiring wee city that has given Sean so much amazing inspiration to write the more time he spends there.
At this moment Sean is working on a couple of screenplays adaptations of his books. one of which - The Old Man and The Princess - made the final of the Nashville Film Festival Screenwriting Competition 2018 and has since been optioned by an award-winning Director /Producer team.
So far Sean has 15 self-published works of fiction -
