Shannon A. Thompson is a children's author, librarian, and habitual chatterbox. She is represented by Marietta Zacker at Gallt & Zacker Literary Agency.

As a novelist, poet, and blogger, Thompson is the best-selling author of the Timely Death trilogy and the Bad Bloods series. When she is not writing, she is climbing rooftops, baking cookies, or watching KDramas in the middle of the night, often done with her cats by her side. Between writing and befriending cats, Thompson graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelor’s degree in English with an emphasis on creative writing, and her work has appeared in numerous poetry collections and anthologies.

Focusing on the writing aspect, however, I would say the best part is when I am researching. I strive to use new legends and new creatures in my novels, but in reality, I'm using old - very old - tales and myths and legends that don't get the spotlight as often. The more legends I read, the more inspired I get to incorporate unusual and rarely seen legends into my work. I wish we had more variety in paranormal literature, so I'm attempting to add to that selection - both for readers and for myths that I do not want to see forgotten. (less)

I’m convinced talking about my work before it’s publish-ready will jinx the entire project. That being said, I try to fight through this irrational side of me, so I have already mentioned on my YouTube channel, Coffee & Cats, that I’m currently working on the rewrite of November Snow, but I have no set plans for publishing any more novels outside The Timely Death Trilogy yet. I also have a couple of brand-new novels I’ve never released in the queue, but those are for another day – when I haven’t already jinxed myself enough. (less)

Happy Memorial Day! + Blogging News & Giveaways

Happy Memorial Day!

I usually blog on the first and third Mondays of the month (and will include one if there’s a fifth), which is why I thought today might be a great time to update everyone.

My blogging schedule is changing!

Moving forward, I’ll be posting on the first and third Wednesday of the month. This means my next post will be on Wednesday, June 7.

In the meantime, there are two more days

Quotes by Shannon A. Thompson  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“She was always daydreaming. She never wanted to live in the real world; she always seemed to be separated from other children her age. They couldn’t understand her or her imagination. She was always thinking outside of the box, breaking rules, and only following what her heart told her was right.”
Shannon A. Thompson, November Snow
