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!

That Cadel Evans will be a draw card for next year’s Tour Down Under goes without saying. Not that the race needs one. It has been attracting bumper crowds for years, kicked along of course by Lance Armstrong’s ill fated comeback to pro-cycling in 2009. Armstrong is gone now, but public support for the race […]
The Livestrong cap should have tipped me off, but I wasn’t concentrating. I was too busy peering up the road, searching for the lights of the lead car through the gloom of a miserably windy and cold Victorian afternoon. Of the smattering of spectators leaning against the road barriers, the cap wearer had positioned himself […]
Garfoot versus Corset. It sounds like a clash from the past doesn’t it? Two cycling greats of the early 20th century going wheel for wheel, battling fatigue and sleep deprivation as they negotiate the last few kilometres of one of those epically long stages that the Tour de France was infamous for back in its […]
