Shanna Swenson


Shanna Swenson is the author of Abundance and Return to Abundance,l endearing adult romance novels that showcase the healing power of love after tragedy. She was born and raised in Georgia, but loves to travel. She spent many childhood summers traveling across the south to her father's home state of Texas and fell in love with the difference in scenery there. She read her first romance novel at thirteen and thus began her obsession for dynamic characters. She loves to be enthralled in a book and feel what the characters feel. Books feed the dreamer within her! She's a Cancer and fits her zodiac sign to a T!

She works full time as a cardiac sonographer at an outpatient clinic, and when she's not typing away at her next novel, she enjoys watching movies of the horror and action persuasion as well as pro football, practicing yoga, listening to the music that suits her mood, hiking, reading many different genres of books, taking photos of nature, especially sunsets, and hanging out with her own "knight in shining armor."

She's currently working on the third book in the Abundance series, Escape from Abundance.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I was around 14 years old when I started dabbling in dynamic characters with complex stories. I read my first romance novel at the age of 13; it was funny and witty and filled with lovable characters and thus began my passion for reading and writing!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I am a Georgia Peach and as "southern as sweet tea" ;-) My mom reigns from a small town here in the state where I reside. My dad was a Texan, through and through, so I have those southern roots buried deep, but I'm also very worldly and love to travel and learn and research all kinds of things. But I "reckon" if I had to say, my conservative Christian upbringing and the southern lifestyle (hospitality and all!) influenced me to write some very down to earth characters, including the good ol' boy cowboy in my debut novel. I mean what southern/western girl doesn't love a dirty cowboy?... Then again, my husband is a born and bred boy from the north (NYC), so don't be too quick to stereotype me in one category just yet... :-)
