About this author

Words have always had the power to move me. That is probably why I’ve always loved writing. It grounds me.

Besides writing, one of my favorite things is to kayak on the Sassafras River. My family and I spend as much time as we can there during the summer. We catch crabs , fish, practice cannonballs and read. As you can tell….it is not a stressful place.

My first novel, The Summer of Hammers and Angels, was inspired, in part, by my experiences with Habitat for Humanity. Part of the proceeds benefit Habitat.

My second novel, What Flowers Remember, was inspired by my experience with my grandfather. He had Alzheimer's and forgot me. Park of the proceeds benefit the Alzheimer's Association.

Read both Stung and Cured at the recommendation of my 11 year old son. I really enjoyed both. The premise was novel, the action compelling enough to keep me turning the page. I was a little annoyed by the main character Jacqui at one point...too much ...more

Read this one because my 11 year old son devoured it and wanted to talk to me about the story. I wasn't truly engaged until about five chapters in, then it moved quickly and I found it an enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Post-apocolyptic tale told ...more

What Flowers Remember by Shannon Wiersbitzky
"This moving story of Delia's coming of age against the back drop of Big Red's advancing Alzheimers is moving and real. I felt that I knew these people--I really don't want to call them characters. I would love to meet them since I already know the..." Read more of this review »

This was a fun book with interesting tidbits about creative people and their creative routines. Was neat to compare my own routines with other authors I admire. Seems I don't drink enough to make it to the upper echelons of the writing world....
