Welcome to Sterling & Stone, home to Johnny, Sean and Dave—knows around these parts as "the architect," "the artist," and "the alchemist."
The Alchemist: Sean Platt
Founder of Sterling & Stone and Guy Incognito. Co-founder of Collective Inkwell and Realm & Sands.
From designing story worlds to the website you’re reading this on right now, I do a bit of everything.
I love it all, but telling stories is my favorite, and I’m lucky that I get to do it with my best friends.
I live in Austin, Texas, with my (best friend) wife, Cindy, and my two amazing children, Ethan and Haley. I’m trying to get the guys here as fast as I can
The Artist: David W. Wright
Co-Founder of Collective Inkwell
Though he is Eeyore to my unrelenting Tigger, we’ve managed to reinvent serialized fiction on Amazon with our golden age of TV-inspired serials.
Dave is involved in [REDACTED], lives in [REDACTED] with [REDACTED], is personally responsible for [REDACTED], and carries a decoy wallet at all times.
He may or may not move to Austin. He likes me and Johnny, but hates the heat and 93.4 percent of all people.
The Architect: Johnny B. Truant
Co-Founder of Realm & Sands
Before Realm & Sands, Johnny wrote the Fat Vampire series and The Bialy Pimps. Then, I convinced him it was way more fun to write collaboratively.
He (mostly) agreed, and since then we’ve written a few Harry Potter series’ worth of words together, including co-writing a full novel in thirty days for our “Fiction Unboxed” project.
Johnny would love to live in Austin, but is unfortunately stuck in Ohio for the time being.
