Shannon has a lot of real life experiences that allow her to draw on the compassion, fun, and exuberance that most human interest stories thrive on. Her life experience has given her an excellent well of knowledge to use including, but not limited to, customer service, break-in/car jacking and how to make yourself less of a target, a small portion of the world of self publishing, and moving (both as a child and as an adult).
Shannon's interests lie mainly with the written word. Books and movies will always have a home in her heart, but lately she has been branching out. She likes to learn new things and thinks that part of the fun is being able to find interesting ways to learn new information. Whether online through a search engine or the old fashion way - the library card catalog- she finds that the search makes the information stick.
As a Navy Brat, Shannon has had more than her fair share of travel and moving experience. While most of her life has been in Oregon, she also has lived as far West as Hawaii and as far east as Maine. Most of her traveling has been done in either a plane or a train, but travel by car across the country is not out of the question. She loves to write about tourist places like Seaside Oregon.
Shannon has been writing and publishing her own books and short stories since 2012 and now has ten available online and one book in print. She writes mainly in the fantasy genre.
Shannon has her own blog named Confessions from a Lonely Heart. While it is still in its infancy, there are some interesting blogs on her post. All of the posts are drawn from her own experience.
Shannon also has submitted a number of blog posts for various topics including Insurance, Vintage toys, soccer equipment and photography tips among others.
As the managing editor and lead reporter for the West Eugene Review, Shannon wrote most of the stories, interviews and reports included within. Even thought the Review is a small time newsletter - limited to one store- a few of her articles went online at greatpeople.me- the Kroger family of stores employee website.
