S. E. Fearon

Biography

Although I was born in the United Kingdom I am for all intents and purposes a Kiwi. My family immigrated to New Zealand shortly after my first birthday and we have been here ever since. Growing up I had a wonderful childhood full of imaginative play and make-believe worlds and, to be perfectly honest, nothing much has changed. I am still as much a day dreamer as I ever was. It is this overactive imagination that has led me into the world of the novelist.

As a writer I am influenced by many things, art, music, films, books, and some of my favourite stories are Japanese animations. I drink in the heroines of Studio Ghibli and lap up the imaginative worlds of C. S. Lewis, I revel in the complexities of J. R. Tolkien and Fuyumi Ono and I laugh out loud when reading Douglas Adams and William Goldman.

When I am not being a writer I am a hobbyist and a gamer, collecting articulated figurines from Japan and spending hours role playing in the world of the Elder Scrolls.

As for my qualifications I have a certificate in Performance Drama, a Bachelors Degree in Human Service with Disability Studies as my major, and a Graduate Diploma in Creative Practice.

All in all I suppose I am a bit of an eclectic eager to try my hand at anything creative and enjoying life regardless of what anyone might think.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I've written stories since I was a small child, granted the first few books I made were nothing more than hilarious drawings and story lines such as Mat hit Dan with the bat and Dan got Mad. I've moved on since then and I actually wrote my first novel when I was in high school, but sadly I lost the draft for it. During my university years I didn't do any writing outside assignments and so it has only been in the last two years that I've picked it up again.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well I've actually got a few books, some waiting in the wings, others being written, and more still in the developmental stage. So I've got everything from a romance based in an alternative 1920's to a science fiction involving travel between two worlds and governmental conspiracies, and of course my favourite genre fantasy involving magic users and prophecies. So I have plenty to keep me busy and plenty for you to look forward to.
