About this author

Shannon Dittemore has an overactive imagination and a passion for truth. Her lifelong journey to combine the two is responsible for a stint at Portland Bible College, performances with local theater companies, and a focus on youth and young adult ministry. The daughter of one preacher and the wife of another, she spends her days imagining things unseen and chasing her two children around their home in Northern California. Angel Eyes is her first novel.

Hey all! WELCOME BACK! We’ve got a new blog series going here. And by WE, I mean ME and the quotes of some of your favorite authors.

Since writers are notorious for giving others advice, I thought it would be fun to dig up some of the most recycled tidbits on writing and share my thoughts with you. Not because I’m an expert. Not at all, but well, I covered all that self-deprecating stuff in my f...

Fun. Fast. Clean. A great read I'd recommend for just about anyone. It's got an appealing Oceans 11 feel to it.

I'm a Peter Pan nut. I collect Tinker Bell figurines and have forever, so the fact that I hadn't read this book until recently is a sad one.

“There is something so attractive about a man who is able to laugh shamelessly.”
Shannon Dittemore, Angel Eyes

“But let me ask you this: when Canaan cloaked you with his wings and you disappeared from the Terrestrial realm, did you just...stop existing?"
"Of course not," I say, surprised by the question.
"It's the same thing, Elle. Ali and your mother have been cloaked by death. You can't see them, but they're not gone. Not really. Our spirits will outlive our physical bodies, so it's our spirits we have to take care of."

“A righteous God isn't bound by time. He has an eternity to make things right.”

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

“There are people, who the more you do for them, the less they will do for themselves.”
Jane Austen, Emma

“There is something so amiable in the prejudices of a young mind, that one is sorry to see them give way to the reception of more general opinions.”
Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

“but for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.”

Kayla Thanks for the add!

Shannon The Lady Emily books are awesome. They are a bit like Pride and Prejudice in that they are period pieces, set close to that time frame. The author's favorite book is Pride and Prejudice so you can see it's influence there. The only thing I'd say is that they weren't written for a teen audience. There isn't really anything inappropriate in them. A bit of kissing here and there, but that's it. Just understand that depending on your preferences, they may or may not be able to hold your attention. That being said, I love them. Of all the new authors I've read this past year, she's my favorite.

A.F. Hey, are the Lady Emily books any good? I looked at them and they sound interesting. From looking at the covers, they kinda remind me of Pride and Prejudice. :)

message 13: by A.F.

A.F. I heard about that book too. Im told its a good book though.

message 12: by Shannon

Shannon I have not seen it. But you don't need your view tainted do you!? That would be sad!

message 11: by Jacy

Jacy Have you seen the book at B&N called Darcy's Temptation?? I feel like if I read it it would ruin my view of Darcy and Elizabeth!!!

message 10: by Jacy

Jacy Apparently I should edit before I send my commets =)

Although I think boom could be a creative alternative to book :-)

Shannon The booms!? Ha!

message 8: by Jacy

Jacy I dog ear! Mom was talking about how she can tell the booms are mine be ause I do that... She is a bookmark person

Shannon Dog ear away my friend! How do you normally keep your place???

message 6: by Jacy

Jacy I love reading your books because then it doesn't matter I I dog ear them!

Jessica Good luck! I am a big fat loser. If I don’t win a book soon I am going to write a nasty letter. LOL! I think it is my time to win one. Two people I work with have won! What are the odds of that? It is so not fair :) Watch when I win I am going to get a book that I didn’t really want to read anyway! LOL! FYI Goodwill is 50% off Saturday! That means books for 50 cents!

Jessica Did you know about this?

You can enter to win books on Goodreads. I have two friends who have won one already. I am a bit fat loser :(
