From everyday to ethereal, the seven stories of What Goes Unseen & Other Tales From Afar peer into the cracks of life, asking what lurks in the liminal spaces between the known and the unknown. Debut author Sean Minster captures the fear, fun, mystery, and murder of campfire tall tales mixed with the intelligence, angst, and nostalgia of his millennial perspective and ever-curious mind. Many of these short stories are literary in nature. What Goes Unseen unravels the fear and wonder that exists around us in the world that emerges from the genesis of our very own minds. Minster's younger sister, Rosie Minster, is the artist who created every illustration in the book. See author and artist bios on the last pages of the book to learn more about these talented, creative siblings.

About the Author

Sean Minster was born and raised outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He grew up within the Irish-American community participating in hurling, Irish dancing, baking soda bread and scones, and volunteering for the Milwaukee Irish Fest. Celtic folktales and story-telling styles strongly influenced young Sean, as did the hundreds of adventure books he read as a child. They were as much an escape from the bitter cold winters as they were a promise of adulthood adventures, but only if one chose to pursue such a life. He was fascinated by the story of humanity, aka history. Rosie Minster was born and raised in Wisconsin with her favorite brother (see About The Author) and three older sisters. She always had a knack for being creative, drawing, and painting throughout childhood, eventually attending the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point to study 2-Dimensional Design and Art History. Rosie draws inspiration from all facets of life. Her many artistic pursuits include playing guitar, singing, dancing, cooking and baking, writing poetry, and tattooing, whether they are temporary with henna or permanent.
