Sebastian Cole never intended on being a writer. He graduated from Brown University in the 80s, then worked briefly in New York before returning to Rhode Island to work in his family’s business. Nineteen years later, he took a leap of faith and left the company to pursue his dreams, which has led him to where he is now: a novelist of romantic fiction. Cole writes from the heart, believing in true love, love at first sight, and finding that one person in life you’re meant to be with.
Cole’s debut novel, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love, was emotionally inspired by his own personal life experiences. SAND DOLLAR has won numerous awards, including winning the Beverly Hills Book Award in the Romance category, and placing in ForeWord Reviews Book Of The Year Awards, USA Best Book Awards, the International Book Awards, the National Indie Excellence Book Awards, Readers’ Favorite Book Awards, Feathered Quill Book Awards, and ForeWord Firsts debut literary competition. Many have compared Cole to one of his favorite authors, Nicholas Sparks, whom Cole cites as an inspiration for becoming an author. Whether or not he ever achieves that kind of success, touching the lives of others through his writing has been the single most gratifying thing he has ever done.
