A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Shannon, and I write books and poems for middle grade readers. I also produce and host Middle Grade Matters, a podcast for writers and readers of middle grade fiction. I hold degrees in both broadcast journalism and law from the University of Florida.


I live just outside of Atlanta, Georgia with my college-sweetheart husband, three kids, and two very spoiled dogs (one big and one little). When I'm not reading or writing, I love spending time along the rivers and salt marshes of the Georgia coast. 


I am delighted to be represented by Christa Heschke of McIntosh & Otis, Inc.
