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!

Jezza’s speccy, Leo Barry’s mark, Michael Long’s goal. They are moments of brilliance that we all know and love. Like pop stars who have become so famous that they only need one name, these passages of play need only a proper noun and a verb to be instantly recognisable to footy fans everywhere. No further […]
The Sydney Swans are on the verge of winning their third premiership in 10 years. It has been a remarkable effort from a team which has refused to bottom out and slide down the ladder to rebuild. While many will argue that salary-cap concessions associated with the controversial cost of living allowance has given the […]
“Connor has gone to heaven. He is in peace now.” It was the message we didn’t want to receive, although we knew it was coming. My son’s best mate had just died from an inoperable brain tumour. He was only eight years old. The news was relayed to me while I was on a break […]
