Shannon Balloon writes books and poetry for children that are inspired by history, magic, and folklore. A former journalist-turned-lawyer, she now spends most of her time driving carpool, volunteering for an arts organization, and writing creative fiction. Born and raised in a small Florida beach town, she now lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her college-sweetheart husband, three school-aged kids, and two very spoiled dogs (one big and one little).
Shannon is represented by Christa Heschke of McIntosh & Otis, Inc.
Shannon has two poems published in Issue 3 (May, 2022) of Pure in Heart Stories, Literary Magazine for Kids. You can view a digital copy of this issue at the Pure in Heart Stores website.
