Shannon McAfee

I am a mom of three lovely, creative, spunky, and unique little girls! They inspire me every day. They spark my creativity and desire to be the best mom and person I can be. I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia, with my three girls, dog, cat, and, last but not least, my amazingly supportive husband.I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with a BA in English. Since graduating, I have gone on a journey through different fields, including consulting, marketing, meeting management, and eventually starting an ecommerce business of my own. I am currently working as a travel consultant, which I absolutely love because it allows me to pursue one of my other passions - travel! I feel like each experience has brought me to exactly where I am today, and I wouldn't change a thing. It has always been a dream of mine to write stories that inspire and help others and what better way than through the beautiful art of picture books. I am so excited to start on a new journey as a children's author, especially with my cousin as the illustrator! Our dads are identical twins, I am a writer, and Emily is an artist. I feel like this has been a beautiful pairing in the works and we've finally come together to pursue our passion - writing and illustrating. My mission for all of my stories is to encourage each reader to appreciate the person you are - your talents, your passions, your journey through life, and (yes) even your imperfections. All of these things wrapped up together create a beautiful package - YOU! Please keep your eye out for more books - I have lots of fun ideas swirling around in my head.
