Scottish Author/Screenwriter.

Best Selling Kindle Author of 'The Old Man and The Princess' (Now optioned to be a major motion picture)

Sean is an author from Edinburgh in Scotland. He spent most of his childhood and teenage years on the move with his Scottish and Irish Parents (No, they weren't bank robbers ) growing up in the likes of Cyprus, Germany, Wales and England, as an army brat.

With a keen interest in both reading and writing, he was diagnosed with the travel and writing bugs very early on in life. Now, writing, traveling, reading, cinema and Scottish football (Supporting the mighty Hibernian FC for his sins) are his main passions in life, along with cooking, yoga, meditation and health, and fitness.

It was only a year or two back that I suddenly released how easy it was to just leave that particular scene and move onto the next one, or a scene further along in the book that I could actually write about and had burning ideas for. For some bizarre reason I didn't realize until that moment that it was actually possible to come back to that scene later on, further down the line. The rough first draft of a book doesn't have to be written in chronological order. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you're having trouble writing chapter 5 then just go and write chapter 14 instead.(less)

“Better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all.”
Sean-Paul Thomas, The Universe Doesn't Do Second Chances

“You know those particular stand out beauties you see once in a blue moon walking by themselves down the high street on a Saturday afternoon or sitting on a park bench all alone during their lunch break in the middle of summer, who immediately catch your eye, looking utterly bored out of their minds and just begging for some single handsome stranger to come and distract them away for twenty minutes or so from their mundane and repetitive daily worlds. That special girl who right away tugged so hard on your heart strings that your blood turned to ice and your soul melted to its very core because you knew she was completely your type without even having spoken to her. All you had to go on was a gut feeling and that special crazy something about her that spoke to every inch of your fibre and being and said this girl is the one for you, my friend, if you would only step up to the damn plate, put all your fears of public rejection, humiliation and inhibitions behind you and gather the courage, will power and determination to go and get her. That rare, radiant and beautiful Angel who caught a glimpse of you, too, and smiled back at you in turn while you were within their proximity but, alas, you had absolutely nothing to say to them in that moment. Nothing. No simple magic words, no charming chat up line, just a blank frozen mind and a stuttering tongue. But in reality, just to say one word, utter one stupid, tiny, silly little insignificant syllable would surely have been a million times better than saying nothing at all and living a life full of regret of not acting in the moment. And then poof, just like that, she's gone forever, out of sight, but never out of your mind.”
Sean-Paul Thomas, The Universe Doesn't Do Second Chances

“Better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all. Whoever came up with that phrase I wanted his greasy head on a silver platt”
