Biography

Shannon got her first positive review at the age of eight, when her third-grade teacher shivered at a story she wrote about a ghost in a graveyard. She wrote her first book at 13 and sent it off to a literary publisher, who probably took one look at the yellow typing paper and white correction fluid and deduced the age of the author. His remarks were consequently very kind, and gave her the courage to keep writing. Twenty-five years, seven manuscripts and zillions of rejection letters later, Shannon sold her master's thesis to Harlequin and fulfilled a lifelong dream. After moving to California from Canada, Shannon started work in the high-tech industry in Silicon Valley. She fell in love with and married her boss, but while they were still newlyweds, the 1989 earthquake destroyed their house. During the construction of a new home, she learned what teamwork and communication really mean! Shannon is now living her dream of being a writer, and freelance editing keeps her in touch with the fast-paced corporate life that sparks so many ideas. She loves to hear from readers.
