Sean Elwood is a 30-year-old writer who has a knack for everything horror. He started writing short stories as a kid and soon developed a love for screenwriting at the age of 14. From then on, he continued to write both short and feature screenplays as he perfected his writing, and soon attended the Art Institute of Austin to earn a degree in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production. He has also self-published an anthology of short horror stories, AfterLife AfterDeath: Stories for the Dark

Sean's strengths include building suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat, painting a detailed picture with his writing, and scaring you senseless. His writing will stick with you long after you've finished reading, sending chills down your spine and thrills through your mind. If you have a love for horror, you've found the right writer.

While he writes for a hobby, Sean's goal is to have at least one feature screenplay produced in his lifetime.
