As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"

About Me

Shaunna has completed and published with Desert Breeze Publishing, Dark Days of Promise - 2012. She has also self-published Live.Love, Repeat.- 2015.

Shaunna currently resides with her family in the greater Seattle area. Once told by her doctors that she would never leave her wheelchair -- due to her Multiple sclerosis. It remains unable to climb the stairs to her condo so she leaves it in the closet -- to collect dust mites.
A storyteller in her youth, she endeavored to extend her love of stories to the written word and in 2005 began to write her first novel. Though that manuscript will remain buried.
She has lived in many states among people of varying backgrounds. Recently she met a small group of veterans and in doing so became intrigued with the effects of PTSD on their lives and that of their families. These friends have served as the catalyst to her first published novel, Dark Days of Promise. 
Currently Shaunna plans to vary her writing, bouncing from Time-travel Romance to the romance genre in general and back again as she finds the depth of emotional commitment required in writing the realistic challenges (many dealing with disabilities) of her non-time-traveling characters emotionally draining.
Her non-writing interests include: getting healthy - lol, and her children and their significant others.
