Sean T. Poindexter
We’re pleased to welcome Sean T. Poindexter to the show. Maer is doubly pleased because Sean is the first author to be published through her publishing house, Ellysian Press. His work is evocative, believable, and can be very chilling. Moth is his most recent novel. It’s a literary gem disguised as a Paranormal Mystery, complete with monsters – human and supernatural.
Sean T. Poindexter
Though born in Mesa, Arizona, Sean has spent most of his life in Missouri. After college, Sean went into social and investigative work, primarily with disabled adults and seniors. Sean’s background in sociology, criminology, and philosophy and his experience as an investigator for the State of Missouri, are heavy influences in his writing.
While Sean has been writing most of his life, he did not consider doing so professionally until he was inspired by a terrible vampire movie. During the film, Sean amused himself by imagining the vampires being attacked by a dragon. His imagination resulted in his series, The Dragon’s Blood Chronicles, featuring dragons and vampires.
Sean enjoys watching and reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, and thrillers. His hobbies include playing Xbox, fantasy role playing games and collecting firearms.
Moth is Book 1 of The Max Hollingsworth Paranormal Mysteries. Sean’s other books include The Shadow of Tiamet and The Will of the Darkest One, both from The Dragon’s Blood Chronicles.

Excerpts from Episode 38
On Max Hollingsworth as a lead character: “I like Max as a character because he was just kind of this dark voice in the books…I could use Max to write something darker and more sinister…”
On using his experience as a social worker to create human monsters: “I kind of see the worst in human behavior. It isn’t pretty…I know what Max is going to be looking at in his regular job.”
Children are vanishing, not just from the streets, but from their parents’ memories. Max’s investigation leads him to a gang of neo-Nazi vampires running a child slavery ring. There, he comes face to face with the deadliest enemy he’s ever met, their charismatic and powerful leader Boone.
Running low on hope and options to find the missing children, Max turns to his friends for help. But even they aren’t enough. Forced to face the darkness of his own past, Max forges an alliance with the least likely ally of all. An enemy whose cruelty was almost his end, and haunts him still.
