Shana Holzendorf


I'm an easy going Florida girl who loves fun in the sun at the beach. I enjoy cooking, singing, definitely writing, and trying new things. I'm a wife, a mom, a teacher, a sister, a daughter, a friend, and I'm still learning how much more I am. Okay, enough of the quirky self advertising... The truth is that while I haven't experienced everything, I have experienced enough to know that life is meant to be learned from, enjoyed, and shared. That's exactly what I try to do in my writing. I learn from where I've been. I apply what I've learned so that I may enjoy life, and I share all that I am, joy... pain... and weirdly funny times in between, with others.

Dear Diary... Can We Talk is the first book that I've completed as an adult. While it was written with middle school girls in mind, I believe anyone who were to pick it up and try it out would find it to be a light-hearted tale with funny twists throughout.

Be on the look out for more books and short stories coming soon in the very near future. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Dear Diary... Can We Talk. Have a blessed day.
