Shannon discovered her aspirations for writing upon making the feminists weep by dropping out of grad school, where she was a Ph.D candidate in the field of Nietzschean Continental Philosophy, to show up homeless on her boyfriend’s doorstep with a cat. (They’re married now. There’s kids. More cats. Love is love.)

She harbors an unhealthy interest in Hamilton, Nietzsche, Mount Everest, ballet, and the Summer Olympics. Shannon aims to write The Next Great American Novel while simultaneously acquiring more cats.
