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!

The alarm sounds at 6:15am. The boy drags himself out of bed. It is cold but he doesn’t care. His footy jumper is carefully laid out on the end of his bed. He admires it for a moment, a brightly coloured maroon and gold design that is pleasing to his eye. He especially likes the […]
We all knew that Australia’s track cycling star Anna Meares would be one of the athletes to watch at the Glasgow Commonwealth games. Her performances over the years have become the stuff of legend. From her battles with English rival Victoria Pendleton, to her comeback from a broken back, to her ability to leap tall […]
No matter what Richmond’s Ty Vickery achieves throughout the remainder of his career, he will always be remembered for the sickening hit he inflicted on retiring West Coast favourite Dean Cox last Friday night.
