Sean Hoade is the author of 18 books, including the New Lovecraftian classic Cthulhu Attacks! and the literary-historical fantasy Darwin’s Dreams. He taught creative writing at the university level for over a decade and held dozens of fiction writing workshops since then. A fixture at Salt Lake FanX since 2014, Sean loves to talk about dramatic structure, characters, dialogue, and any other aspect of fiction writing you can think of. He also writes a mean spontaneous haiku — ask him for one if you see him! — and has performed this trick of creativity at multiple charity events. He lives in the wilds of Las Vegas, Nevada.
