About Herb Sennett
Herb Sennett began writing novels at the age of sixty-five following a career in education and Christian ministry. Herb has been a high school teacher, a Baptist minister, a college professor, an army reserve officer and now a writer. Actually, he’s not sure what he wants to do when he grows up, but he’s having fun doing lots of different things.
Herb holds several college and university degrees (including two doctorates), but his heart has always been in the nitty-gritty of daily ministry doing volunteer work with various charities, acting as a counselor and mentor to his students, and serving for twenty-one years as a chaplain in the army reserves. As if that wasn’t enough for one career, Herb has published two academic books in the area of Christian drama and theatre history. He has written dozens of articles for trade and academic journals and currently hosts a blog and several websites.
Never busy enough, over ten years ago he started Creative Illusions Films, a West Palm Beach production company, which produced a drama about two veterans dealing with the results of their war experiences in Vietnam titled A VETERAN AFFAIR. Starring Michael Winslow of “Police Academy” fame, the film uses the metaphor of a chess game to demonstrate how each man faces his own frustrations brought on by the ravages of combat, often referred to as PTSD. The film garnered Herb a nomination for best new director at the Christian Film Festival in U.K. in 2010.
Herb’s company also produced the documentary, COMING HOME, about his own experiences as an army infantry officer in Vietnam. That movie won critical acclaim at nearly a dozen film festivals across the country and was named best movie at the Re-Birth Fine Arts Festival in Jacksonville, Florida.
Herb Sennett has also produced and/or directed over thirty stage plays in various venues throughout the Southeastern United States. He also spent nearly forty years as a teacher in high school and college as well as a chaplain in the army reserves retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2004.
Now in his early seventies, Herb is more active than ever with three novels completed (awaiting final publication), four novels currently in development (that means he's writing them) and planning three more. Chances are he'll never retire but will keep on writing for years to come.
