Sean Robert is a prairie boy and freelance writer based in Vancouver, British Colombia. He has been published in LOV Magazine, Xtra.ca, Outwords Inc., Out in Canada, and most recently, the BC Paralegal Association Newsletter. How he got that last writing credit he is still unsure.
Sean grew up in Winnipeg and graduated from the University of Winnipeg in 2009. He is best known for his comic persona Rugged Fox. Soaked in red wine and/or gin, "The Misadventures of Rugged Fox" is the humorous ongoing tale of a young redhead who strives to be the perfect gay man and somehow always misses the mark.
During his time at Winnipeg queer magazine Outwords Inc., Sean acted as the Arts & Entertainment Editor and wrote a monthly column entitled "Fabulous Disposition: Love, Life and Drama in this Prairie Town." Nowadays, he affectionately refers to this column with its unofficial title, "No Sex on the Prairies." As a major contributor for two years, Sean wrote feature articles, news, film and art reviews. He also interviewed Canadian playwrights Sky Gilbert and Daniel MacIvor, as well as artists Noam Gonick and Luis Jacob.
While on the prairies, Sean also refined his news reporting skills contributing several local news articles to Xtra.ca.
In the summer of 2007, Sean wrote and produced his first play at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. Titled “heat wave,” the one hour comedy told the story of Caleb Enright, a twenty-something whose life turns around when he falls in love with his high school bully. The play sold-out just over half its run and was met with an excellent audience reception. One critic from the Winnipeg Free Press described the production as “Will & Grace with more sexually explicit jokes.”
Since moving to Vancouver, Sean has contributed feature articles to LOV Magazine as well as a recent special travel piece for the National Post. He is currently working on his first novel while trying not to get in too much trouble as Rugged Fox.
