|Sean Patrick Fannon and Carinn Seabolt|
Sean Patrick Fannon has been professionally involved in RPGs and interactive entertainment for the last 20+ years of his life. Starting in 1988, Sean began writing freelance articles and game reviews for small roleplaying game magazines and fan `zines. He then started writing books for the world-famous Champions RPG (at one point becoming the Continuity Director of the Champions Universe). Sean also wrote for such properties as the Shatterzone RPG and the Star Wars RPG, as well as Shadis Magazine, Adventurer's Club Magazine and Dragon Magazine for TSR.
Off and on, Sean's spent time in the digital gaming mines; sadly, most of the projects he was involved in went down the Development Hell Hole, but he gained tremendous experience working on them. He also got to see a huge amount of the country, living in such places as Los Angeles, CA; Raleigh, NC; Jacksonville Beach, FL; and Petaluma, CA.
Sean is the author of the hobby-defining The Fantasy Roleplaying Gamer's Bible, and is the creator and author of all things Shaintar (the epic fantasy setting for Savage Worlds). Shaintar: Legends Arise and an entire series of products in that line is scheduled to come out from Reality Blurs in 2012. Sean is also part of SilverMeet Studios and is the creator of the hobby-changing OmniVerse - a cosmological sandbox featuring the greatest creators, genres, and systems in gaming!
In addition to his writing and development work, Sean's been deeply involved in helping build the business of gaming; he spent a couple of years as the Events Coordinator and Communications Associate for GAMA, and he is now the Marketing & Communications Manager for DriveThruRPG. One of his proudest achievements so far as been his involvment in collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in support for Haiti, Pakistan (via Doctors Without Borders) and Toys for Tots, all thanks to the amazing community of gamers he reaches through DriveThruRPG.
Carinn Seabolt is a newcomer to the gaming world, but has already established herself as a force to be reckoned with. After meeting and handfasting with Sean Patrick Fannon, she immediately became immersed in both the hobby and industry of gaming, and has proven herself savvy and enthusiastic as a salesperson and presenter of ideas. She's become a part of the DriveThruRPG family, assisting in marketing efforts; content editing; program coordination; and customer service support. She's also done work for Fat Dragon Games as a sales and presentation representative.
Her latest and greatest achievement, however, is to become a founding partner of SilverMeet, LLC, for which she has been named President. She's also the Editor-in-Chief and Talent Pool Coordinator for the publishing arm, SilverMeet Studios. Working with many of the most respected talents in the industry, as well as the top up-and-coming creators, editors, artists, and others, Carinn is set to guide SilverMeet as one of the rising stars of the 21st Century gaming market.
