     Shannon’s first book was released December 1, 2010.  “My Reflection in the Mirror” is a look at some personal demons that she had to overcome.  She hopes by telling her story she can inspire and empower other women.

     It continues to be a long journey but with her deep spiritual conviction and relationship with God, Shannon has learned how to overcome the obstacles in her life.  She credits everything in her life and who she is today to God.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.     Romans 8:28
