Sebastian Chase


Sebastian Chase is a Navy Veteran, former programmer, and surgical technician.

He grew up in a military family, which led to extensive world travel, including living for two years in Iran when relations were better with the United States. He has also toured Western Europe, Eastern Ukraine, Iraq, and the United Arab Emirates. Stateside, he grew up in Virginia, California, and Washington State. He now calls Denver, Colorado home where he lives with his wife and son in the shadows of the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My curious nature led to the writing of Venom of the Gods. I had watched several vampire movies, read many modern vampire novels, and then went back to reread Bram Stoker's Dracula, and nowhere was there a believable origination story for these popular creatures. Where did they come from? How did they get their powers? What do they want? While I admire Mr. Stoker's story, I also wanted to get rid of (or give reason for) some of the vampire weaknesses that I thought a little silly. With their speed, strength, and ability to fly, I see vampires more as the original superheros than as garlic and wood stake fearing creatures of the night. Having lived among humans, I also envisioned them with life dramas and dilemmas of their own, which gives them a human aspect people can better identify with. Even gods worry about those they love.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always written for fun. I have handwritten 20,000 word short stories from the bunk of a Navy frigate (sadly, many of those are lost in time), to thousands of poems and song lyrics. With the explosion in eBooks, it seemed a natural extension to start putting my work online for others to enjoy. Another benefit, when my water heater busts in the middle of the night, I won't lose years worth of work when the box containing them gets soaked and the ink runs (really happened).
