Shawn P. Cormier


Shawn Cormier was born in the small town of Southbridge, Massachusetts. He found his love for words early, reading the likes of Jim Kjelgaard, Jack London and J.R.R. Tolkien. Finally, having run out of "good reads", he put pen to paper and at age twelve wrote his first short story.

When not writing, he can be found in his jewelry store, repairing ancient heirlooms and studying the magical properties of gems, and wishing he was writing.

  • The Hour Glass Dagger on Sep. 19, 2012

    The Hour Glass Dagger grabbed my attention from the start. The writing was professional, the action well-paced, the characters likeable. First impressions were very high. As I read further, my impressions began to fade as the author began to switch back and forth between more than a few story lines that had no apparent ties to each other, at least that I could see. At first this did not bother me as I figured the author would begin to bring the story lines together somehow. But that never happened. In fact, the story lines were even written in different voices so that they seemed even more disjointed. That said, the book is the first book in a multi book saga, so perhaps the story will even itself out in subsequent novels. I have hopes that the story that began in the first few chapters of Book One will rear it's wonderful head again and take me on a grand ride once more!
