Shannon is a former consultant who once had no fear of traveling the world fulfilling her international duty to bring good tidings of corporate protocols and methodologies to unsuspecting new hires stationed in Europe, Australia, and the US. Talk about fodder for good story, try doing that for a few years and the idea bucket will overflow. Nowadays she’s too chicken to venture out more than 22.5 miles from her writing cave, mostly because she hates traffic.
She slowly transitioned from her decades long career in consulting to the glamorous life of an author, finally winding down to full-time mom/writer in late 2015. Shannon’s two daughters are both adopted and came into her life each with their own amazing stories.
Her writing career began in nonfiction, adding fiction to the mix in 2018. Her pen name in the fiction arena is Kathryn Wise and you can check out her work here.
Shannon is a deep thinker, which means she’s a real dud at a cocktail party. How does she survive the awkwardness of a social society? She lives her daily life out of a mysterious connection with God. The more she focuses on Him, the better things are. He has her on a short leash.
If you have a chance, read her favorite quote by Jean-Pierre de Caussade.
Come, simple souls, you who have no feeling of devotion, no talent, not even the first elements of instruction—you who cannot understand a single spiritual term, who stand astonished at the eloquence of the learned whom you admire; come, and I will teach you a secret which will place you far beyond these clever minds. I will make perfection so easy you will find it everywhere and in every-thing. I will unite you to God, and He will hold you by the hand from the moment you begin to practice what I tell you. Come, not to learn the map of this spiritual country, but to possess it, to walk in it at your ease without fear of losing your way. Come, not to study the theory of God’s grace, or to learn what it has done in the past and is still doing, but simply to be open yourself to what it can do. You do not need to know what it has said to others, or repeat words intended only for them which you have overheard. His grace will speak to you, yourself, what is best for you.
