Sean T. Poindexter
Sean was born in Mesa, Arizona, but has spent most of his life in Missouri. Sean has a B.S. in Sociology from Missouri Southern State University, and a Masters degree in Criminology/Criminal Justice from Pittsburg State University. He is the author of the urban fantasy series The Dragon’s Blood Chronicles, and Moth, the first book in a series of paranormal mysteries. Exiles of Forlorn is his first YA novel, as well as his first foray into traditional fantasy.
His literary influences include H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, George R.R. Martin, J.R.R. Tolkien, Mark Lawrence, and R.A. Salvatore. Sean has been writing his entire life, but was inspired to begin writing professionally in 2008 after watching a terrible–albeit, popular–vampire franchise film. Sean was so annoyed with the film that he entertained himself by imagining dragons killing the vampires, which went on to inspire his first novel, The Shadow of Tiamat, the first book in the 4-part Dragon’s Blood Chronicles.
Sean lives in the Lake Ozark region of Missouri with his wife Amanda and several cats. When he’s not writing, he enjoys reading, watching films, playing Xbox and collecting firearms.
