Sean Fraser was born in 1953.

His Grandfather introduced him to Chas. Addams and Pogo in 1965. [His Grandfather's complete set of Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf, i.e., The Harvard Classics, would be read in the 1980s.] Ballantine Paperbacks and Dover Books were essential. Mad Magazine and, later, Zap Comix &c were read. He was introduced to the works of Edward Gorey in 1970. A fine foundation. 

He graduated High School; and, thereafter, was a writer who studied under Professors Baudelaire, Mallarmé, and Apollinaire following High School. His written work includes teleplays, screenplays, white papers, adverts, procedures, manuals, et al. The writing style of his literary works is a portmanteau of Romanticisme, Décadentisme, and Symbolisme wherein those written works may be considered variations on a Theme in which leitmotifs of Chaos, Existence, and Dreams are used in all after having been seen at the Peep-shows and Sideshows of Logic and Reason.

Théorèmes, Rhymes & Tales: Voyages et «Pièces condamnées, galanteries, epigraphes, pièces diverses & bouffonneries1» (including maxims, adagia, and aphorisms, gnomes and saws [unless otherwise acknowledged]) have been written by him. «La Femme Eidôlon : A Tale» eBook [] was written over a Thirty-year Entr'acte. He has Chimera pièces, too. [] And, an article on book-collecting at Empty Mirror Books [].

more than how to write a script.
