The constant struggle between Shannon’s Psychic mind, her Gamer mind and her Author mind has pledged friends for a while. During school Shannon’s English teacher encouraged creative writing but she never had a true ending to any of the stories she wrote. Thus her true theory of, the Story never really ending after the last curtain falls.
As a child Shannon was encouraged to sing and develop her voice but felt it didn’t do much for anyone’s enjoyment but for herself and her closest friends and decided to not pursue a career with it.
Shannon has held many jobs over the years. Her favorite and the one that lasts the test of time is her Psychic work. Giving readings for customers during her days off. some of her favorite work to do is Channeling, medium-ship and of course whens he gets a chance to ghost hunting. Thus, giving her the nickname of the part time psychic.
After years of gaming in live action and tabletop Shannon got the itch to storytelling herself. She fell in love with the idea of telling the tale and letting her gamers fill in the back story. So with that she pulled her own Imagination into gear and pulled her stories out of the gaming world.
Shannon Lives in Kennewick Washington.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read is a hard one. the shorts I was forced to read as a child were like see dick and Jane. the short ones that were for readers. Though My first favorite book was the lion witch and the wardrobe. By CS Lewis. He taught me the importance not only of imagination and creativity but of research and how to mess with history and facts to become your own. I think it was one of the first books I read all the way through and couldn't put it down till I was done. I have found many that taught me the joys of pulling away from the television and creating your own pictures through his books.
How do you approach cover design?
This was the hardest thing about my story. I asked my writing group and one had a friend of her daughter as a artist named yebel a sweet young woman perusing her passion in art. I understand about having to give up so much, because no one would back me up and support my dreams. I asked her to do my cover to help her pay with school. I gave her my short story and the first four chapters of the novel that will be out in September. she loved Gothic work but doesn't have a chances to do it much and was thrilled with the idea. It was a blessing to find this young artist at the beginning of her career.
