“I have just never been afraid of just opening a mic and speaking. That’s never been my problem. You put me in front of a microphone and I’ll tell you a story or I’ll think of an anecdote or I’ll tell you a horrible joke or something.” ~ Shawn Inmon
“I’m one of those people who needs to be doing something. I don’t like to just take days off and sit around the house. I like to work.” ~ Shawn Inmon
“I hear this voice in my head, which I’m a typical writer, I hear voices, and the voice said, I have a story.” ~ Shawn Inmon
“Everybody’s needs are different, and I want to kind of focus on all the different ways we can find healing and we can find family.” ~ Shawn Inmon
“I think the day I die, there will probably be a half-finished Middle Falls story on my computer.” ~ Shawn Inmon
“I’ll tell you the hardest thing, the hardest thing is faith and trust in yourself. Uh, a lot of writers suffer from what’s called imposter syndrome, thinking I’m not really good enough.” ~ Shawn Inmon
“So I gotta continue to have faith to stop listening to that voice that says, Sean, you’re a crappy writer; you’re never going to write another good sentence.” ~ Shawn Inmon
Shawn Inmon is a small-town kid who dreamed of being a writer. Today, he is now a full-time author who lives in Tumwater, Washington, USA. He worked several dozen jobs—retail, real estate, traveling with the Unlimited Hydroplanes, crabbing in Alaska, morning disc jockey and station manager, and many others he can’t remember to list. These jobs gave him a wonderful base to write what he knows because he knows a little about a lot. He achieved his dream of becoming a full-time writer in 2016 and has never looked back. One reviewer called him “The King of Redemption stories.” Shawn says he doesn’t feel like a king of anything, but he does love a good tale of second chances.
He is the author of the ever-growing The Middle Falls Time Travel series, 18 books and counting, and The Alex Hawk Time Travel Adventure series. He is also the author of Feels Like the First Time, a bestselling memoir of growing up in a small town in the seventies, falling in love, and messing everything up.
He lives with his high school sweetheart—now wife—Dawn, two happy-go-lucky Chocolate Labs, and a slightly schizo cat named Georgie.
