Hi, I’m Shannon.

I hail from the frigid Midwest, but after picking up a Bachelor’s in Anthropology and minor in Latin from the University of Iowa, I kissed the cold goodbye and migrated south down to sunny Austin, Texas. I work as a software project manager by day, but by night I am toiling through my first novel.

What can you expect from me and from this site?

I am going to document my writing journey here, and all that it entails. Here is where I currently stand:

  • I participated in Camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo during 2017. I currently have a rough (rough, rough) draft sitting at about 80 thousand words.

I’ll be posting here to update y’all on:

  • My revision progress
  • Finding an agent (????)
  • What I’m currently reading
  • Miscellaneous ruminations

You can read my first post here. It goes into more depth about my character arc and motivations.

Can’t wait to meet you, loves.
