Shannon's mother says she was a storyteller from birth, jabbering endlessly in her carriage as the two strolled through the neighborhood; once she could form complete sentences, she made up stories, bribing her younger siblings to perform them in mini plays. When she was ten, she began writing books, mostly fantasy stories where she was the heroine, and she continued writing secretly for years while pursuing acting in stage and improv comedy. After detours studying in Mexico, the U. K., and Paraguay, Shannon earned a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Utah and a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Montana. In the interim, she submitted short stories and novels to magazines and publishers, saving all her rejection letters which she has since laminated into one continuous 60-foot roll which she proudly unfurls to audiences as a testament to her dedication and determination.

Since the publication of her first book, The Goose Girl, in 2003, Shannon has become a beloved author to young readers as well as booksellers and educators. Her third novel,Princess Academy, earned her a Newbery Honor and is a The New York Times, Book Sense, andPublishers Weekly bestseller. Shannon has also written two books for adults,Austenland and The Actor and the Housewife. Shannon lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband, Dean, their children, and their pet, a small plastic pig.

    Verified Purchase

    These books are a favorite with my daughter age 13. She read them at school, and then checked them out from the public library. She asked for them for Christmas this year too! So we purchased them from overstock! She has loved every book by Shannon Hale and especially these three. They are a great read , witty, funny, and have good story plots as well. I recommend this series to anyone 8 and up!
