Sean Sweeney’s love of reading began in 1988, when he was handed J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic The Hobbit, and was given a needed boost with John Grisham novels and the Star Wars Expanded Universe. His passion for writing began in 1993, as a sophomore in high school, when he began writing sports for his local newspaper. Born and raised in North Central Massachusetts in 1977, Sweeney has written for several newspapers and radio stations. When he is not writing, he enjoys playing golf, reading, watching movies, enjoying the Boston Red Sox, the New England Revolution, Arsenal F.C., Gold Coast F.C., and playing with Caramel The Wonder Cat.
Who are your favorite authors?
I have quite a few. R.A. Salvatore, Kevin J. Anderson, Professor Tolkien, Jim C. Hines, Michael Connelly. I find that lately, I'm not reading as many traditionally published books. I'm finding them to be detail-less crap. Those five, I know I'm getting quality.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The drive and desire to create new worlds and stories. That, and my wife needs me to make her lunch before she leaves for school.
