Sean loves to combine his love of sport and writing.
He played country football for 20 years in Victoria and Western Australia, along the way breaking, straining or tearing every bone, muscle or tendon in his body.
He recently won the Stringybark Australian Short Story History award for his depiction of the Aboriginal game of Marngrook and his work has appeared in various newspapers and anthologies.
He has covered recent editions of the Jayco-Herald Sun Tour and the Australian road cycling titles.
Despite a couple of second places in D grade club races he is still not quite as fast as Cadel!
