So, let the fun continue!
Shannon M. Parker lives on the coast of Maine with her husband and sons. As a young adult, she was lucky enough to travel the world, though her stories tend to explore themes closer to home. She works as a literacy advocate and holds degrees from three New England universities. Shannon spent two years working behind the scenes as a reader for two literary agencies, one boutique and one industry giant. She has evaluated and edited manuscripts for debut authors and bestsellers. On any given day, she can usually be found rescuing dogs, chickens, old houses and wooden boats. Shannon has a weakness for chocolate chip cookies and ridiculous laughter, ideally, at the same time. The Girl Who Fell is her first novel, a YA Contemporary releasing from Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse on 3.1.2016.
