Shannon's mother says she was a storyteller from birth, jabbering endlessly in nonsensical baby-talk. Once she could speak, she made up stories and bribed younger siblings to perform them in mini-plays until, thankfully, an elementary school teacher introduced her to the wonder of written fiction. At age 10, she began to write books, mostly fantasy stories where she was the heroine.
A good friend to our bookstore for many years now, she currently lives in Utah with her four children and husband. She's received several awards for her books, including the Newbery Honor for Princess Academy.
