Biography

Here's my story...

Former military, process server, private investigator, and teacher. I live in the hills of Colorado with my wife, sons, a ferocious dog, and the gentle spirit of her predecessor. I am still grieving the death of Robert B. Parker and his wonderful creations who seem more real to me than many actual human beings. It has been difficult to get my mind around the death of not only Parker himself, but the passing of Spenser, Susan, Jesse, Hawk, and all the others who have been part of my life for so many years...peace, Robert B. I can still hear your typewriter clacking away...

Another of my favorite writers is Max Allan Collins. His Nathan Heller books are the best in the genre. The amount of research that man does for his books is, well... frightening.

That's all I have to say about myself for now. Peace, sd

Smashwords book reviews by Sean Dexter

  • Hearken Unto Me on April 29, 2015

    Over the last few years, the publishing industry has changed dramatically. With the advent of on-line publishing, independent authors now have a platform from which to showcase their work. Granted, there are some terrible novels out there—the same, however, can be said of the brick and mortar shelves of Barnes and Noble and all other major book retailers. I spend a lot of time searching for independent authors who have met the high standards of traditional publishers—or surpassed them. This is one of those books! It tells the story of a heart-broken and personally tormented priest (Father Terhune) who is searching for the ultimate answer by stalking the ultimate evil. He is by trade an exorcist—and yes, the Catholic Church actually does have such priests. It has mystery, suspense, and the walking dead. Its main genre is horror, but like all good books, it transcends a single genre. As a side-note, the book offers a wonderful historic insight into the plight and trials of Native Americans in this country. Hearken Unto Me will scare you, educate you, and keep you guessing until the end. THIS IS A MUST READ!
