Isaac Sweeney has been a writer for as long as he can remember. He was born and raised in Virginia, where he still lives today. He has spent the better part of his life honing his craft and trying to share the gift of words with others.
A firm believer in writing as advocacy, Isaac has made a lot of friends and a few enemies with some of his works. His writing is unapologetic, but still subtle and insightful.
"I was never supposed to be where I am today. In academia, the route to the tenure track has on it a terminal degree, publications in peer-reviewed journals, and other what-everybody-else-has-done things.”
So begins author Isaac Sweeney as he chronicles his unlikely path from a newspaper staff writer to his coveted tenure-track position in higher education.
After his father left his family, the author found a replacement in the unlikeliest of fictional characters - the gun-weilding, hard-cursing, cigarette-smoking John McClane from the movie Die Hard.
