Earl Sewell was born in Chicago, Illinois and earned his degree in fiction writing from Columbia College of Chicago. Later, Sewell pursued his dream of becoming a published author. However, after receiving over forty rejection letters from New York publishing houses, he gave up on idea and in 1990 entered Corporate America.
Nine years passed before Sewell realized that he wasn’t living up to his full potential. His passion for writing was so overwhelming that he found it impossible to ignore his calling. He decided to take a leap of faith and start his own publishing company which he named Katie Books, after his late mother. He published his first novel in 1999 and sold several thousand copies of it locally. By 2001 he had a solid following and New York publishing houses were eager to purchase the rights to his work and distribute it nationally.
Sewell has written a total of seventeen novels over the past eleven years. His books have held steady positions on regional bestseller lists and have been featured in many publications, such as The Washington Post, Publishers Weekly, Upscale Magazine and Jet Magazine.
