Featured Interview With Sean Michael Paquet
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am an author, investigative journelist and freelance writer. I am also a retired Air Force Master Sergeant with 24 years of active service. After I retired from active service I operated as a private defense contractor in the Middle East. I was raised in a small town called Carplake located in the northern most part of the lower peninsula of Michigan. I am now living in a village called Pinili in the province of Ilocos Norte in the Philippines. I have two dogs, and a whole farm full of livestock.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I was five years old when I started reading. I was writing poetry and short stories by the time I was seven.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My two very favorite authors are R.A. Salvatore, and Luis L’amour. My favorite genres span everything from science fiction to westerns. My inspiration comes from hundreds of religious, metaphysical and spiritual writings from around the world. I guess you could say that a higher power inspires me to write.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
A young warrior who can speak to spirits and animals; gifted with an inner sight no one understands.
A Sabretooth oathbound to protect him.
An orphaned Polar Bear with undying loyalty.
A soldier from an Earth in its last days.
A giant from a distant past.
A Raven who spies upon the doings of men.
Beings who wield cosmic power with mere thoughts and experiment with whole worlds in order to create a Utopia destined to fail.
All pieces in a game of secrets and intrigue played by a mysterious artifical lifeform.
A Game of Gods at its very core is a book about second chances. It is about forgiveness and acceptance. My story took two years to write, but the bulk of it was written between June and Decembee of 2019. During this time I went through a very traumatic Spiritual Awakening that had seperated me from everything I had once stood for and identified with.
