Shantelle Mary Hannu was born in the mountainous west, spending her golden childhood years there. Since then, she has relocated time and again with her parents and seven siblings, making cherished memories in both the South and Central United States.

A Christian homeschool graduate, Shantelle has a passion for writing and all things books. From a young age she’s been penning tales with a hope of sharing with the world adventurous and soul-stirring stories that bring glory to God.

A Dream Not Imagined, a fairytale novella, is her first published book. She’s currently preparing a full-length fantasy novel for publication as well, and working on its sequel.

Never stop! :-) And write the stories that your heart calls you to; never mind what anybody else says or what's popular.

Read tons! I think my love of reading has helped my writing so much!! There's so much to learn just by reading the books of seasoned writers.

If you have a finished story, let friends or family read it. You'll never know what people think about it until you let them read it! It's nerve-wracking of course, but you have to do it at some point.

Connect with published authors. Ask them about their publishing journey and whatnot.

And when you feel your book is ready for the public, forge ahead! That's what I'm doing in any case, :-) Check out all your options and decide on one. Get your name out there by social media. Do not let anyone tell you that you can't publish your work. You can. Just keep trying! :-)(less)

I print my books through createspace.com. What they do, is each time a costumer buys a book, they print it up and send it. So I don't have to print up a bunch of books at once. They print on demand. I sell my paperbacks for $5.99, and probably get around two dollars profit since each book is $2.15 to print.(less)

So, friends, I went to Goodwill again ... clothes shopping (usually I go book shopping there, hehe) ... and I found three shirts and a pair of jeans! For $18! *winks* Makes me feel thrifty.
Anyway! I thought I'd take some pics and do a quick post showing you all the outfits I put together.
Here goes.

“God . . . will You write my love story? Will You write my life story? I just don’t believe I can do it on my own. My heart will shatter into a million pieces long before I get it right.”
Shantelle Mary Hannu, A Dream Not Imagined

“A dream not imagined . . . that’s what God has for you . . .”
Shantelle Mary Hannu, A Dream Not Imagined

“A woman's heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him just to find her.”
Maya Angelou

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“Mr. Knightley, if I have not spoken, it is because I am afraid I will awaken myself from this dream.”
Jane Austen, Emma

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: New International Version

“O Father God, I know nothing is impossible for You. I am not putting my faith in anything but You — not the money in my purse, nor my status as the daughter of a duke, not in Colin’s ability to protect me, nor even in myself. My faith is in You. You are mighty to save, and I will not waver in my faith. I know You care for me, and nothing is too hard for You.”
Melanie Dickerson, The Princess Spy

Aww ... ^__^ This did put a smile on my face! :)


Ruth Elizabeth Scroll down

trust me this will put a smile on your face, make your day, or help you

Every night , someone thinks about you before they go to sleep,

At least fifteen people in this world love you.

The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you

There are at least two people in this world that would die for you

You mean the world to someone.

Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.

When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look.

Always remember the compliments you've received.

Forget the rude remarks.

So if you are a loving friend, send this to everyone on your list including the person that sent
it to you.

God loves you so much that He sent his only Son to die on the cross for your sins!

Make Someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! remember
that your loved

F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

=Respect you
