About Sean Roney

Sean Roney can often be found in the far corners of whatever coffee shop happens to be nearby in his travels. Green MP3 player and purple earbuds at the ready, he’s reached an unmatched level of expertise in what he calls the art of keyboard destruction. However reclusive he may look, it turns out he’s more than ready to chat about random ideas, especially if the discussion takes a turn for the bizarre. It seems like the more strange, the better for this California author.

It’s that type of obsession with oddball ideas that fuels his stories. He’ll crunch away on his keyboard to the point one thinks smoke should pour out the sides of the unfortunate device. And in the end, he sits back and enjoys a celebratory refill of coffee. Another day, another story.

Never mundane and always freakish, this is the fiction of Sean Roney.

Beyond being the strangest coffee-drinker to annihilate a keyboard, Sean is a proud member of the indie author movement and an advocate of e-publishing. He has enjoyed writing fiction since he was a child, and because of the e-publishing revolution, is now able to share his stories with readers around the globe.

Sean writes a variety of fiction, with most of his writing falling into the Worldvoid Saga or Creation Shadows universes. Each series is intended as a stand-alone work, but they all fit into larger tales that span multiple worlds and timelines. These series include: Blue Gem, The Valley, and True Heart Nova.

Loved it even though it was strange.

Review by: David Blake on Oct. 06, 2012 :
Jason's character is well-defined, but I found the story-telling quite dull. The opening scenes are entirely composed of matter-of-fact descriptions and character thoughts, almost like bullet points with little or no attempt to make the text interesting or atmospheric. The story itself was lacking in invention at times: Co-worker's found a strange rock that gives him God-like powers, end of explanation. And how is this God-like being overcome? Well, that didn't seem particularly inventive to me either, but I won't spoil it for those who've not read the story.
Overall, rather perfunctory and left me unmoved.
