Sean Wheaton tries to write everyday, and he usually succeeds. He teaches writing, rhetoric, and literature at several schools in the Portland metro area, and he loves being in the classroom almost as much as he loves the focused ease of a good writing session. He lingers over well-wrought sentences and absorbs vivid metaphors. He loves writing taut sentences to shape the gunk that surfaces from the well of his imagination. “The transformation,” he says of this process, “always surprises.”
Sean is actively looking for representation for his first novel, A Phenomenal Nothing, but in the meantime he writes and revises short stories and the occasional poem.
