S Gail Seymour, (the S stands for Sandra, put before Gail because her parents couldn’t think of a middle name that sounded right after Gail) has been writing for the Internet for over a decade. In that time she has designed, created and managed dozens of Web sites, and created the copy for over 50,000 Web pages.

She has made her living as a freelance writer since moving to Wolverhampton, in the UK, with her new partner in 2009.

Prior to that, she had a somewhat erratic career, starting out as a Saturday lass in Wilko’s and serving stints as a motorcycle trade sales secretary, a hire counter sales assistant, (where she gained a certificate to change abrasive wheels) and a prison librarian (where she trained as a hostage negotiator) before being, “pensioned off,” at the ripe old age of 26 due to an long term undiagnosed balance disorder.

During her period of illness, besides having a small collection of poetry published, and teaching herself web design and programming, she worked part time as an independent distributor for two network marketing companies before returning to full time education to train as a florist. Finally, she ran her own flower shop in Doncaster before turning her attention to writing full time.

Moroaica, her first novel was published in May 2011, and Decontamination, her second, in October of the same year. Moroaica is a vampire slayer novel, (think cross between Buffy and Blade) whereas Decontamination is an eco-thriller.

“I love paranormal stories and science thrillers, and don’t want to have to give up one for the other,” she says. “Although I understand not all Moroaica readers will want to cross genres with me, and that’s fine. I’ll be writing more of The Moroi Chronicles, and more Matt Kasey Mysteries too. I think that’s the beauty of being an Indie author, that I don’t have to restrict myself to just one formulaic style of writing.”
