Sean was born and grew up in Montreal, Quebec. After receiving a B.Ed. and a B.A, he taught just about everything from English and Math to Astronomy and Geography. Before settling in Ontario, Sean and his wife, Sylvia, traveled extensively throughout North America and Europe, studying art, architecture and history. After the birth of his daughter, Maggie, he began writing and illustrating stories for, and with, her. Creating the stories was so satisfying that he decided to pursue it professionally. Having taught art and illustration in secondary school for twenty years, Sean recently left teaching in order to devote more time to writing and illustrating books.
Sean was elected President of CANSCAIP in 2009, after serving as Vice President for two years and as Illustrators' Rep for several years before that.
Sean's most recent book is "Kazaak!" (October 2010) Fitzhenry & Whiteside Publishers.
Sean is currently editing his first novel "Rough 'n Tumble" (working title).
