Shannon Dittemore has an overactive imagination and a passion for truth. Her lifelong journey to combine the two is responsible for a stint at Portland Bible College, performances with local theatre companies, and a focus on youth and young adult ministry. The daughter of one preacher and the wife of another, she spends her days imagining things unseen and chasing her two children around their home in Northern California.
She is represented by Holly Root of The Waxman Literary Agency and her YA novel, ANGEL EYES will debut courtesy of Thomas Nelson Fiction in summer 2012.
Debut: ANGEL EYES is the first in a YA, supernatural trilogy about a devastated teenage girl, an enigmatic neighbor boy, his guardian angel's halo, and the age-old battle between darkness and light.
Five fictional YA heroes I'd LOVE to have with me during the apocalypse:
1. Benny Imura (ROT & RUIN) Just in case there's zombies.
2. Silvertongue (Inkheart) Because an apocalypse without fairytale creatures isn't an apocalypse at all.
3. Ron Weasley cause he has Dumbledore's deluminator and that sucker could come in handy.
4. Peter Pan because I have to believe that the boy who never grows up will survive whatever tugged us into the apocalypse.
And 5. Katniss Everdeen because hello! It's Katniss.
