In 1993, this Los Angeles native took his talents to Texas, Colorado, England, Korea and Washington State as a member of the US Air Force. After being medically retired from the Air Force he found his way into the Naval Reserves where he spent 10 years in San Diego.


In 2015, almost 22 years from the day he headed into the military, Sean retired. The Iraq and Afghanistan War veteran hung up his boots and pursued a career in dance fitness and wellness coaching. It is in these ventures that Sean realized he had a gift of reaching people through his down-to-earth realistic approach to life and fitness. He began writing inspirational messages on his Inspiration with Sean Puffy Brown Facebook page (link).


As his following grew, Sean had one more big step to make which he completed on Mother's Day in 2017. With the help of his good friend, he self-published his book of thoughts titled Just A Thought, which has received rave reviews thus far.  In August 2018, Sean brought his second book to the world, a book in three parts, including a continuation of his inspirational insights, a collection of blogs that wrestle with some of the most provocative topics of our times, and a lighter, more creative collection of captioned photographs that capture the world through the writer's eye. This book would be titled Just A Thought, Too. Then in January 2019, Sean continued his thought books with Just A Thought, Tree, which is a book of his photographs of the world taken through his cellphone. This book challenges people to slow and simply enjoy life as it comes.


In 2020, Sean and April launched LETME the Journey the show where the two share the amazing gifts of life, adventure, conversation, highs and even lows of the world. Starting solely on Public Access television at first the two recently expanded it to their own YouTube channel.   It has been an amazing so far and Sean and April look forward to what is coming next.

April Emerson’s children’s book A’pononoko and the Lonely Tree was not her first official venture into the world of self-publishing. In fact, her experience with self-publishing began when Sean Brown asked her to help him bring his writing and vision for his book Just a Thought to reality. Two books in his series later, April realized it was time to bring the story of a lonely tree, a wise old woman, and a sad little girl to life.


April lives in western Washington State with her feisty German Short-Haired Pointer Buck, and her plans for several more children’s books. 


Before she came to Washington, and took a chance with her own writing, she spent her teenage years in Las Vegas and spent most of her adult life as a spouse of a Navy submariner. A mother of one son, also a creative mind, April spent many years traveling from duty station to duty station, caring for family and working in the hotel and convention planning industry. All the while, she met people from all walks of life, experienced diverse locales, and found inspiration to live life to its fullest. She graduated in 2001 with a Bachelors of Arts (Summa Cum Laude) in English and Teacher Education and, then in 2005, with a Masters of Science in Reading, both from the State University of New York at Albany. She has been teaching secondary English language arts, literature, and writing ever since. In 2016, she met Sean Brown and officially began her journey into publishing and writing. She continues to write to this day, both public and private compositions. She is the host of RosieReads with Author April Emerson on YouTube. And, with Sean, she has helped develop self-improvement workshops and is now co-host of their latest adventure, LETME the Journey, a show that celebrates the exploration of life experiences.
