About this author



Sean Sweeney’s love of reading began in 1988, when he was handed J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic The Hobbit, and was given a needed reading boost with John Grisham novels and the Star Wars Expanded Universe in the 1990s. His passion for writing began in 1993, as a sophomore in high school, when he began writing sports for his local newspaper. Born and raised in North Central Massachusetts in 1977, Sweeney has written for several newspapers and radio stations. Since then, Sean has written eighteen novels along with a handful of novellas and short stories.

When he is not writing, he enjoys playing golf, reading, watching movies, enjoying the Boston Red Sox, New England Revolution, Arsenal F.C., and the Gold Coast F.C.

Sean lives in Bolton, Massachuset

In my novella An Invitation To Drink... Or To Die, one of the minor characters is a chef. In the scene in question, he is preparing that night's dinner: a crock pot pork chop dish.

That's the dish I want to share with you while you sink your teeth into Travel Agent today. I made this dish for my wife when we started dating, and this is usually a Tuesday staple here on the Farm.

Sean Bracing for more snow this weekend. Uncle!

Besides, that gives me more indoor time, and time working on my next project.


message 51: by Sean

Sean Reader:

Sean Sweeney had me sitting on the edge of my seat, chewing nails, giggling at Snapshot and Scouser, and then tears!!! ‪#‎TravelAgent‬ ROCKED!!!!!!!


message 50: by Sean

Sean More snow over the next 48 hours. I wonder if I build an igloo if I can get a WiFi signal in there.....

Taking the weekend to recharge, which is also known as doing everything my wife tells me to do.


message 49: by Sean

Sean Working on the subplot today.


message 48: by Sean

Sean I think--think--I'm halfway through the outline for JJ7. More work today.

In unrelated news, it won't freaking stop snowing. I'm going to tie a white t-shirt to my shovel and stick it in the snowbanking out front.


message 47: by Sean

Sean Received a note from a reader who just started TRAVEL AGENT today: "So far so GREAT!!! But what else would I get from you?!"

And two five-star reviews so far.


message 46: by Sean

Sean Printed up my notes last night and today started outlining the story. Got through four chapters today.

This will be a multi-day endeavor, I think.

Sold a BUNCH of TRAVEL AGENTs so far. Keep 'em coming, gang.


message 45: by Sean

Sean Another couple of pages of brainstorming to do in JJ7.


message 44: by Sean

Sean Back into brainstorming mode for JJ7. Will be doing this most of the day, and will be for the next couple of weeks, I think.

But you never know!


message 43: by Sean

Sean First round of shoveling done... is 11 a.m. too early to tie one on?


message 42: by Sean

Sean First reader review for TRAVEL AGENT is in; it's amazing how it takes a month to brainstorm/plot, three months to write (thanks, weddings and World Cup), then the editing process.... and the first reader breezes through it less than 24 hours.

"He's done it again! Great read, another awesome installment in the Agent series. Some unexpected twists and a great ending. Can't wait for book 7!"

5 stars by the reader on Amazon.


message 41: by Sean

Sean Life. Is. Bleeding. GREAT.


message 40: by Sean

Sean So TRAVEL AGENT, the newest Jaclyn Johnson novel, is now available!

US Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Travel-Agent-Th...

UK Kindle: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Travel-Agent-...


message 39: by Sean

Sean OK, in a re-writing hangover after a long day today. Possibly writing a blog tonight or tomorrow morning on my observations.


message 38: by Sean

Sean Through the battle scene, up to where Radamuck and Co. meet Kirkrik Dannell. And now to get to the scene where Grumpet makes his first appearance.

Scary to think that I've added so much content to this story.


message 37: by Sean

Sean Awesome writing day this morning: 2,332 words. Should get to the first major battle of the book tomorrow.


message 36: by Sean

Sean Had planned on a bit of writing before shoving off, but I think that will wait until we get home... or even tomorrow.


message 35: by Sean

Sean Happy 123rd birthday to Professor Tolkien. Alas, twelvity-three years is far too short a time to spend among such excellent and admirable hobbits. I know half of you half as well as I'd like, and I like less than half of you half as much as you deserve.


message 34: by Sean

Sean First book of 2015 sold yesterday was THE LONE BOSTONIAN, followed by REDEEMED, TURNING BACK THE CLOCK, SIDETRACKED, and AN INVITATION TO DRINK...OR TO DIE.

So we're starting the new year on the right foot.


message 33: by Sean

Sean A Happy New Year to everyone from Jen and I. We're currently on Cape Cod; coming home tomorrow. Short visit.

Working on the plot outline to JJ7, but I may work on the re-write in a bit.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas.


message 32: by Sean

Sean So Foster's book is out. It's pretty good, so check that out. THE LONE BOSTONIAN is out for me, check that out.

And I'm trying to stay in the zone regarding the re-write... but I may need a new car, so... yeah.


message 31: by Sean

Sean THE LONG CRIMSON LINE = First draft, complete.
TRAVEL AGENT (Jaclyn Johnson No. 6) = Off to betas.
THE OBLOERON TRILOGY = About to be re-written from scratch.

Yep. From Scratch.


message 30: by Sean

Sean Deep into the third draft. More today, surrounding a dentist's appointment.

Hey, if you're into Urban Fantasy, make sure you check out Foster Haskell's work, especially the forthcoming Apprentice of the Rain. He is my wife's cousin, and he's absolutely brilliant.


message 29: by Sean

Sean 34 pages into the revisions. Jotted some notes down for a second new scene. Coming along, making it a better book.


message 28: by Sean

Sean Just finished the first major edit of INCINERATION--but I think I have a better title for it. I'll input changes tomorrow, brainstorm a scene that I'll tag on to the end of Ch. 1, and then possibly write another scene at the end. It feels too short at the moment, but we'll see how it goes. May send to an alpha reader to get recommendations on additions.


message 27: by Sean

Sean In the midst of editing INCINERATION. It's better than I had originally given credit.

Happy Book Day to Rick Chesler.


message 26: by Sean

Sean Google Play will be the death of me.


message 25: by Sean

Sean Well, I've ignored Goodreads for way too long.

Hello there! I'm currently working on a new book, entitled INCINERATION. I'm about 16,000 words into it, and it's coming along very well. Seven chapters in.

First book sold of the year: a copy of Redeemed. Makes me a happy author.

Check in soon.


message 24: by Sean

Sean Finished writing PROMISES GIVEN, PROMISES KEPT today. A bit shy of 21K, a little more work to clean it up of course... but the first draft, she is done.


message 23: by Sean

Sean i can see the end of this novella.... and it is good.


message 22: by Sean

Sean Hi all, I'm still alive. Working on a new Jaclyn Johnson novella right now. Coming up on 14K.


message 21: by Sean

Sean And done. 140,177 words. And I'm spent.


message 20: by Sean

Sean 130,070 words. I think 135K by Wednesday evening sounds like a rather good goal to reach, don't you?


message 19: by Sean

Sean Got to 122,002 words today. Either tomorrow or Saturday, I'll make it to 125,000... and even 125,225. That last figure represents what will be the longest book I've ever written.


message 18: by Sean

Sean Just did some math. DOUBLE AGENT ended up being 125,224 words when it was all said and done, my longest novel ever. That said, I only have 8,320 words to go in REDEEMED to tie that number. And with the pace I'm setting... I could have it by this weekend. Three days' worth of work if I stay focused.


message 17: by Sean

Sean 3,135 words today. Brings me up to 116,904 words in the project. Another day like today, and I'll be at 120K tomorrow.


message 16: by Sean

Sean Hi gang.

Going to hit 115K on REDEEMED today. Spent a good portion of yesterday afternoon sketching out the next 12-13 scenes, which should help me breeze through most of the rest of the book, but now I can see the end a little more clearer.


message 15: by Sean

Sean I will crush 110K words in REDEEMED tomorrow.


message 14: by Sean

Sean Sitting at 106,652 in REDEEMED, and I think I wrote the last sex scene of the book. 34 chapters finished.


message 13: by Sean

Sean If you're interested, KindleObsessed.com did an author spotlight on me today: http://www.kindleobsessed.com/sarcasm...


message 12: by Sean

Sean Just deleted about 70-someodd books from my Kindle, and just updating the device as a whole.


message 11: by Sean

Sean ‎1,550 words by 10 a.m.? Yeah, I'll take it... stopping there. 33 chapters done. 103,600 words total for the project. 20,050 words in 2013. The only question is do I write tomorrow, or take tomorrow off?


message 10: by Sean

Sean 1,550 words for today. At 102,050 words for the project. 18,500 words since January 2. And since I didn't write last Friday, I'm thinking that 1,500 words tomorrow will be a nice way to cap off 10 days of solid writing.


message 9: by Sean

Sean Now... what to read next? So many books on my Kindle, so little time.


message 8: by Sean

Sean Wrote 1,500 words... cats are napping, dinner is simmering... might as well do a little reading today. Karen Cantwell, look out!


message 7: by Sean

Sean 100,000 words... take a seat. You've been vanquished by my mind.


message 6: by Sean

Sean With a 98-book Apple update, I crossed 4,000 books sold in 2012. I am beyond blessed, folks. Beyond blessed.


message 5: by Sean

Sean Been working hard over the past week on REDEEMED. I'm now at 95,550 words. 12,000 words written in the past seven days (I took Friday off).

This book is going to be EPIC, people. EPIC.


message 4: by Sean

Sean Simon wrote: "Hey matey."

Hi Simon. How's things?


message 3: by Sean

Sean 2,100 words today, up to 87,350 words in the project. I felt like I wrote some solid stuff today. Posted some of it on Facebook.
