Welcome to the personal blog of Captain Maybe (not my real name … or rank … not that I have a rank). Since March 2006, this has been a record of my life, times, thoughts, feelings and miscellaneous things I’m interested (books especially). I have been an English teacher in South Korea for much of that time and have had the opportunity to travel the world, including India, Canada, Japan, China, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and lots of places in Europe.
I’m from a working class town in north-west England and am quite happy to no longer live there. It took me about 25 years to escape Runcorn; in 2002 I started a creative writing degree at Bath Spa University. After I graduated in 2005, I moved to London, made friends with a Canadian who’d taught in South Korea – and the rest is history. Literally: it’s all written down here.
I am a fantasy writer – under the pen name of Sean May. I enjoy roleplaying games, and have created my own system with which I’m currently running a campaign. I’m also an atheist, rationalist and sceptic. A random selection of things I love includes cats, Metallica, comedy, Stephen R Donaldson, tea, Radio 4, Mozart, Queen (but not the Queen), Robert Rankin, science, puns, curry and secondhand bookshops.
