Shannon Clayton is a Canadian-born Kiwi, a writer, dreamer, an ever-optimist, and all while walking in many pairs of outrageously, fabulous high heels. Four of a Kind is her debut novel and is right in the heart of the chick lit genre. Shannon wrote Four of a Kind to be an enjoyable story and just a genuine good read, that is funny, sweet and entertaining - much like her baking. Shannon currently resides with her husband in Wellington, New Zealand. Her love of writing is rivaled only by her love of shoes, and her website www.writinginheels.com combines both with a little dose of self-proclaimed fabulous thrown in too.

There will be days when I knock out several thousand words and other days when I struggle to hit one hundred, and on days like the latter, I don't force myself to keep going. Not only do I find that I end up rewriting or just not really liking what I've written during these times, but it zaps the enjoyment out of writing as well. So when those grey clouds come floating in and I can't seem to push on, I simply don't. I take the day off and don't scorn myself for doing so. I write best when I want to write, not when I have to.(less)
