Brief Biography

Shannon L. Arrant is a wife and mother to three human children and many four-legged animal ones that also happens to be living with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (an autoimmune disorder that affects the nervous system; similar to Multiple Sclerosis) and Fibromyalgia.

A self-described ‘jack of all trades’, she happily expresses her creativity through writing, directing, acting, and crafts.

Although an adult, she firmly believes in the power of dreams and makes time to get lost in her head, daydreaming, on a regular basis. The results of her daydreams often inspire the characters she writes about, directs, performs, or otherwise helps bring to life through costume design.

And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream – Edgar Allan Poe

A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night – David Gilmour

    Hi, Shannon.

    Happy New Year! Happy Winter Solstice, too!

    Liliana and I met you when our vendor’s booth (marketing my sci-fi novel, “Mine”) was next to yours at Conjecture, in San Diego, and then we talked with you again at LOSCON.

    I just wanted to tell you that I have read all but one of the short stories in your “Pretty Piece of Work, Vol.1.” My favorite was “Chaos,” but I found each of your stories to be meaningful, and have been moved by each of them. I will probably read the final one tonight. Keep writing!

    Best wishes.

    Lin Sten
