Shannon Spruill


            Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Shannon Spruill has a passion for writing and a very creative imagination.  She always had a vision of becoming an author.   Shannon graduated Suma Cum Laude from Bryant and Stratton College with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a Master’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Boston University.   She has worked in the computer technology field for over 20 years and is a modern day gadget geek.   She is a Senior Marketing Development Specialist in Finance at Ingram Micro Inc.  She is a member of the Faith Missionary Baptist Church where she serves as the convener of the Women’s Christian Fellowship and Sunday school teacher. Looking for a new road to travel Shannon decided to pursue her lifelong desire to write her first book and has embarked upon this journey.   Her desire has always been to write fiction but she felt she had a story to tell.        
               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 hoped by telling her story she would inspire and empower other women.
             October 
4, 2013,
Shannon lost her son Brian in an automobile accident.   This was a devastating tragedy but instead of sinking into a dark place, Shannon grieved and picked herself up with the help of God and began helping other parents that have lost a child.  With the help of her husband, Shannon started the Buffalo Chapter of Bereaved Parents of the USA, a support group for parents, grandparents and siblings who have lost a child.  She also published her second book, “The Shattered Mirror: Picking up the Pieces.”  Because she felt that both these books were her personal testimony, she published both books combined.
             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.
              Shannon released her 3rd book on April 22, 2017, Forbidden To Tell, and she is currently working on her 4th book that is scheduled to be released in September 2017.  She is also the CEO and founder of SMS Write On Publishing, LLC., and is a member of the Board of Directors for Our Curls Inc., a non-profit organization that provides services for women of color battling cancer.
