Shian Serei supports children's charities in Uganda and Guatamala, and urges everyone to consider making a similar effort in the under developed country of their choice. "Raising children as a single father taught me a new perspective about what it means to be 'home'. A large population of children are are being raised by one parent, a grandparent or foster parents, and other situations. I've learned that regardless of whom a child relies on as their parent, as long as there is love at home, then a child should feel 'normal' about their homelife." -Shian Serei
"There is no hope for many children unless people wake up to the reality of hunger, lack of clean water, disease and ignorance that keeps many children from ever reaching adulthood." -Shian Serei
Shian takes on on a lot of projects, and enjoys an active lifestyle of fitness, travel and various pursuits. He is a polyglot, speaking four languages and learning another on any given day. His fascination with languages and customs, especially in Eastern Europe, is woven into his romance novels from the Kingdom of Meridian series.
Shian has also been a sponsor and recurring member of the judges panel for the International Peace and Film Festival
, held annually in Orlando, Florida.
