More about The Fabulous Shanna

I'm still just so psyched about Shanna Swendson's new book Damsel Under Stress, that I have to share more fun info with you.

About Shanna:

Once upon a time ...

A little girl learned to amuse herself by making up stories in her head. She turned everyday activities into exciting adventures, and she made up new adventures for characters from her favorite movies, TV shows and books. Then one day she realized that if she wrote down those stories, she'd have a book! But that was crazy, she thought. Real people don't become novelists. That was like deciding you were going to be a movie star. You couldn't just go and do it.
But, it turns out, you can, and she did. She realized her dream of becoming a novelist and seeing her stories in bookstores.

And then she started to wig herself out by writing about herself in the third-person.

This is her story.... Read the rest of Shanna's bio.

While reading Shanna's blog, I found links to some more creative interviews.

I'm telling you, if you have even the smallest interest in books by J.K. Rowling, Mary Jo Putney, Janet Chapman, Shana Abe, Karen Marie Moning or just Fairytale/Fantasy in general, you're going to love this series. Okay, although Janet Chapman and Karen Marie Moning both write romantic fantasy/magic stories, they aren't nearly as PG as Shanna is, but in my book that's actually a really big plus on Shanna's side.
If anyone else finds a fun post about Shanna and her books, leave me a link in the comments section. I'd love to see it.
