Hi, I’m Sean Gallagher. I’m a teacher living in Portland, Oregon. I am a fan of writing, gardening, and camping. I’m also interested in technology and Civil 3D. You can visit my website with a click on the button above.

Sean Gallagher is husband to Monica, father to Rune, brother to Alan, environmentalist, engineer, and author of the upcoming historical fantasy novel, Mysts of Mythos. For examples of his work, and a summary of the kind of story that you will find in Mysts of Mythos, please check Sean’s website On Twitter he is @Faolan. On Instagram he is @mystsofmythos. He also contributes to the Epic Fantasy Writer blog which can be found here:

Sean grew up in Syracuse, NY, attending first Delaware Elementary, then Shea Junior High and finally George W Fowler High School. In the summer between his sophomore and junior year of high school he moved with his family to Bend, OR where he attended Bend Senior High for his final two years of high school. The natural beauty of Oregon impressed him so much that Sean has considered himself an Oregon native ever since.

After meeting his future wife, Monica, at an SCA event in 1995, Sean moved to Portland to be closer to her and go back to school. He attended first Portland Community College and then Portland State University pursuing a degree in Civil Engineering. Sean graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering in March of 2002 and attained his Engineer-In-Training certification in May of 2003.

Throughout his childhood Sean was interested in fantasy and science fiction, reading The Lord of the Rings by the age of twelve. The first book that he ever picked to ‘purchase’ on his own was Taran Wanderer by Llloyd Alexander, the fourth book in Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain series. As he grew older Sean became influenced to a greater extent by his father, Jack, an amateur historian with more knowledge than most history professors. Sean gained a love of history and began to read alternate histories for enjoyment. This led to his idea of a fantasy setting based on real history and his creation of the world of Mysts of Mythos.
