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)

If you’ve been following my publication journey over the past few years, then some of you have probably already guessed that I don’t have a book coming out this year. Usually, you’re not supposed to admit these sorts of trials as an author, but I like to be transparent because I wish more authors were transparent when I was an aspiring author (and I wish more industry professionals would stop f...

“I wanted to punch him and understand him at the same time.”
Shannon A. Thompson, Take Me Tomorrow

“Among my stillness was a pounding heart.”
Shannon A. Thompson, Seconds Before Sunrise

“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
