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!

What a round of footy! While Round 3 of the AFL may have been a tipster’s dream, the action on the field was anything but predictable.
When Magpie Travis Varcoe cannoned into Brisbane’s Tommy Rockliff during the third quarter of last Saturday’s game, it looked as though the new Lions’ skipper was down for the count.
It has been well over 100 years since Bob Rush’s playing days for Collingwood came to an end.
Some people have been suggesting Mick Malthouse is the greatest coach of all time, and if longevity is the measure you use to quantify greatness then they might have a point.
When West Coast’s Eric McKenzie and Bulldog Tom Liberatore had their seasons ruined by crumpled knees in the first round of AFL practices matches last weekend, many began questioning the worth of holding a pre-season competition at all.
While Mick Malthouse once preached that it was ok for the ox to be slow because the earth was patient, he obviously doesn’t think the average footy fan possesses the same tolerances as our gentle planet.
