The Origin Story of a Best Selling Author

Every Great Story
Begins With Nothing.

Bestselling author Sean Platt might have never started writing if not for a gift from his wife on his 30th birthday. She bought him a Macbook, and told him to get started doing what she knew he was supposed to do.

Writer Dad is a love letter to Cindy, Sean’s family, and the craft of writing. It chronicles his first painful but necessary years, through his eventual success as a bestselling indie author.
