  3. Hi Shannon!
    The name of my first novel is “Nightherders” and I’m currently working on finding an agent so that I can get it published. However, if I don’t find good representation, I promise that I’ll get it out there somehow, and that I’ll let you know about it.

    I see that you are on tumblr – if you’d like to regularly read some of my fiction, you can follow me there as I frequently post new fiction and photos:
