About Shannon Harris

I am a 35 year old mother of three, fortunate enough to pursue my passion in writing. After losing my five year old son, Anthony, to Leukemia, my life became focused on a more true and heartfelt approach to life. I enjoy helping people use their pain as a means to something greater with my life coaching practice.

I truly enjoyed reading "Breaking the Rules of Grief" by Shannon Harris. I laughed out loud at some moments because they were so familiar and true. I found the author's journey refreshingly honest and hopeful. My son, Mack, 8, died suddenly on New Year's Eve 2012 and I have been reading widely from those who hold up a lantern and shine a little pathway for us. Thank you!

I can't really describe how this book made me feel. I laughed, I cried and didn't want it to end. Not everyone knows what it's like to struggle through probably what's the hardest thing to experience in life, and I think Shannon did a phenomenal job in telling her journey. I admire her strength for putting her story out there for people to read, and her raw honesty in her life decisions. I recommend this book to everyone! I applaud you Shannon!!

We all hear about those stages of grief that are supposed to occur after a tragedy, but the author explains how a journey with grief is not a cookie cutter experience. This book will provide an alternative set of tools to help survive with grief. This book is a real glimpse into the heart and life of a mother who is learning how to live after the loss of her son, Anthony. Shannon grabs the reader into those moments that are painful and unimaginable, but there is still light all around to help pull you out of the dark. You will cry, be angered, and cry some more; however, there are moments worth a smile and a laugh even in the midst of grief.
