Shannon used to enjoy her English classes at her school. At a young age, she was passionate about drawing. She wanted to become a Disney animator as she loves Disneyland, Princess, Arts, and Beauties. Thus, she also took art in her college as a major. But, she realized it is not for her, so she started focusing on “Broadcast Writing and Production.” After that, she also worked in Hollywood and realized that it is again not for her.
So she started doing other day jobs to pay her bills. She moved to her house in the suburbs with few cats and started living a good life. But something was missing in her life. So she started dreaming about stories and writing them.
The two series she published became the Newyork and USA Today Bestsellers.
