This originally started as the biography entry on my profile in this forum. I figured I would share a little about me and why I want to write.
My name is Sean. I was born and raised in Nebraska. My father was enlisted in the US Air Force and my mom was... well, mom. I enlisted into the US Army after high school and have been around the world more times than I can remember and in combat more times than I can forget. I have a half-brother who I will probably never know and is one year older than my oldest child, and an older sister. I have three children, two dogs, three cats, and one horse. And, of course, I have a wife. I love my God, my family and my country. (Yes, in that order.) I am happy and humbled to be who I am and where I am. I like to think I have a large enough imagination for the both us; Lord knows it's gotten me into more trouble than I'd like to admit. And that's why I want to write. I want to write because I believe I have an affinity (albeit unrefined) to describe and convey the human element in words. I feel I can contribute with my writing because writing has always been a part of my life. From the first summer I told my mother I was bored and she told me to read a book. Of course, I couldn't choose my own novel, I was only eight. So my mom chose two for me. Richard Bach's Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Bram Stoker's Dracula. After those, I couldn't put a book down. People have lived and died in my stories. Impossible events and great adventure have befallen the many characters I have brought to life. Unfortunately, I've never shared their stories. I hope this endeavor will enable me to finally put their lives and their stories into written words for the enjoyment and hopefully, the betterment of whosoever turns the page.
