Writing is and always has been
a way for me to express myself

Shannon Rivera is the author of several published YA short stories, including The Selkie– a story about a young selkie’s envy of the human world and her forays into the unknown. This story has been published in the Young Adult Fiction Anthology- The Seven Deadly Sins: Envy, out now on Amazon

In addition, Shannon is also the author of the upcoming Of Rebels and Ruin, due out in 2018. Using her military experience, Shannon has put a fresh spin on urban fantasy fiction which includes the mashing of traditional fantasy, Asian mythology, steampunk, romance, and science-fiction elements with the spy world.

Shannon also has experience writing for gaming websites, military commands and currently teaches writing workshops for middle and high school students.

When she isn’t working on her current publications, Shannon is a full-time homeschool teacher of her four children. And, she is a graduate of  Southern New Hampshire University . She graduated Summa Cumme Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing and English with a concentration in Fiction Writing.



She is married to her husband of 13 years, Bernardo,  and has four children and one fur-baby named Jet (Walker Treeing Coonhound.)  She has lived all over the United States in places like Virginia, Ohio, California, Georgia, Texas and other fabulous states as well as overseas, but currently resides in east Tennessee.
