Shannon Tripp

Biography

When I was little I remember my Mom telling me that I had a hard time learning to read but when it finally clicked, I took off running and never looked back. However there were some road blocks; like waiting for my favorite authors to come out with another story. So I started making up some of my own. I fill my time waiting for books, working and imagining what would happen if...

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
That's a hard question to answer because there are so many of them. I guess I'd start with Mercedes Lackey, Anne McCaffery, and Piers Anthony. Then I'd have to include my first favorite: Walter Farley and one of the newest I'd discovered about a year ago: Nicky Charles. Outside of the fantasy genre, My favorites are G.A. McKevett (Mystery) and Jayne Castle (Romance).
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Work, work and more work. It's a life long dream to be able to support myself with my writing but until then I hold down at least 40 hours at the local department store. Other than that, during the summer and fall I visit the Saturday Market and the movie theater. Lots of inspiration to be found there.

Smashwords book reviews by Shannon Tripp

  • The Chronicles of Dragon: The Hero, The Sword and The Dragons (Book 1) on Feb. 09, 2014

    Fast read with great, likable characters. If you're looking for something entertaining without a lot of unneccesary detail, try this one on for size. Recommended for early teens but still enjoyable if you've passed those troublesome years. Would have been five stars but I really don't like cliff hangers.
  • The Majat Testing on April 15, 2014

    Great story that is well written. Hope you write more with these characters.
  • Wyreth's Flame on April 15, 2014

    I never really thought about how hard it would be to tailor a story to both a child and adult audience but your character pulls this off marvelously. Must be a trying life to have the gods put a story in your head but not give you any idea about the "gist" of how they want it presented. Great short story and I look forward to more with this fascinating girl. :)
  • Yin-Yang on May 27, 2014

    Very well writen and compelling. Could not put it down!
  • The High King's Golden Tongue on Nov. 07, 2014

    This has become one of my favorites. It's a pick up and read and then read it again because I enjoyed it that much. Wish it was longer or more with these characters was offered.
