I love visiting schools and talking about how much I dreaded reading when I was a kid. Yes, I did say DREAD! I also speak at conferences, festivals, and participate in YA panels. Look for me on Skype in the Classroom, too!

“Shannon was a great inspiration to our hard to reach readers.” ~Ms. Chapman, Sandalwood

“The Summer My Life Began was the #1 checked out title after her visit!” ~Ms. Ashley, Atlantic Coast HS

“Shannon cracked us all up. She kept my juniors completely enthralled. Which is saying something!” ~Janice, Academy of the Arts

“Definitely book Shannon. And ask her about her crazy travels. She’s insane!” ~Ms. Winters, Head Librarian

“Ms. Greenland was the perfect ending to our year. I can’t keep her books on my class shelf!” ~Mr. J. Thompson, English teacher
