Oh, you are so funny. I love your ridiculously long bio.

When is RS coming out in paperback?


It's good to know that someone else loves community theatre! Please excuse me now, I have to go rewrite...


*runs away to go rewrite*


Hey, we have the same favorite color and foods! Crazy.
The ridiculously long bio was indeed ridiculously long, but also ridiculously fantastic. Loved every word.
P.S. The blog post title? Cracked me up.


Hahaha! I like the advice for the newly published. It made me laugh.

1500? Holy cow. Crazy. I don't know how you even attempt to read them. (I think one of them is probably mine from like three years ago.)

I only like one of your favorite foods, fruit. I'm addicted to fruit at the moment. I eat it for breakfast, lunch, and if my parents would let me, I would eat for dinner.

Oh, yay. I adore your ridiculously-long-bio; it was lovely to read so much about you! (I don't care if I sound like a star-struck fan-girl cause I am one.)


yay! new stuff on squeetus! gonna go check it out.


Yay, more mincemeat! Your bio was tons of fun to read- you and Dean are so adorable.

Oh, and Indian food? Yum.


What a fun post! I loved the long bio. You were in Paraguay at the same time that one of my best friends was on a mission there. He used to throw Spanish and Guarani (sp?) into his letters all of the time. I didn't have a problem with the Spanish, but I didn't know much about Guarani. His name would have been Elder Holzhouser. His first name meant ham in Spanish, so I don't think he would have shared it with very many people. I mean, he loved to make people laugh, but some jokes get old.

Looks like I have some re-writing to do tomorrow.

I simply adored all three new additions to your site, Miss Shannon! Your advice to the newly published was especially enlightening for me! You give me fresh courage and remind me that stories should be breathtaking and nothing less! :) Thank you lots!


I also loved the bio (of course). Oh, and, heh - those e-mails I had sent you before? A long while back? Well...they're weirdish, I know, and I'm not sure what made me click that SEND button. I always believed that I was being possessed... ;)


Apparently many of us (Me! Me! Me!) do indeed wish to know that much about Shannon.

I loved it. I love writing but sometimes it's so hard for me to just sit down and keep going with my story that doesn't seem to be working. You're tips were helpful. I also love, no I should say LOVE Indian food. Actually I loved all the foods you mentioned. But I LOVE Indian food.


Shannon, I absolutely love you, you know that? Your extended bio is awesome and I learned so much that I didn't already know. You are such a great person and I love that you love your family so much.


And your subtlety of rewriting is starting to come through, just a little :)


I thought the Ridiculously Long Bio was a joke until you actually posted it! :) Your youth was great to read about and to compare it with my own. Dreams come true if you want them to and I'm SO glad you chose writing over acting. Dunno why. ;)


Love your Bio!


Shannon, I LOVED reading your ridiculously long bio! I, too, loved poring over my college catalog, giddy at all the options. The bits about your persistence in pursuing your writing career were really inspiring. Thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with us. I adore your books. I'm a librarian and am constantly recommending them to my patrons.


Ok, I loved reading that ridiculously long bio of yours. It's so in-depth. I hate it when you reasearch something millions of times but you don't get any more information than the first time you encountered it.

Oh, and I'm like you with the favorite color thing. I like, like, ALL colors but I'm very lenient towards green. And white and other earth hues, like brown and sometimes orange.
It's strange. I've never tried Indian food but I'm dying to. I love their movies, language, and music (I have like 15 songs in Hindi in my mp3), their dress, their hair... everything! And I still haven't tried their food, even when there's an Idian restaurant next to the mall. I have tried Lebanese food though, and it is delicious.

And one more thing. I was just listening to Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Journeys and noticed that one of the songs is called Avaz-E Dashti (Persian Traditional). I thought, "Oh! Like Dashti! That's so cool."

Just thought I'd let you know.


And I gotta' go rewrite, too. I was reading my... whatever it is... yesterday and noticed I change from past to present tense at least 20 times in the little bit I have. I'm dreading all the changes I have to make because of all the time it'll take me. I can't afford to lose time with Algebra!

*Sorry for the double post.
**Wow that was long.
***Sorry for that, too.
