Sean McManus

Sean McManus writes inspiring books about business and technology.

His novel Earworm, published on Amazon in 2015, is a techno-thriller that takes a slice through the music industry: from the boardroom to the stage; from the studio to the record fair.

He has written for magazines including Musician, Future Music, Making Music, Melody Maker, Raspberry Pi Geek, The MagPi, The Author, Press Gazette, Internet Magazine, Personal Computer World, Internet Works, Marketing Week, Start & Run Your Business, and Business 2.0. His first published pieces were program listings and programming tutorials in Amstrad Action and Amstrad Computer User.
