Her favorite part of being an English teacher was building a massive classroom library and helping students find the right book at the right time. She hopes that her stories might one day find their way into the hands of a child looking for the right book.
Shondra is a first-generation college graduate and has a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in education. She is married to her best friend and together they have three young boys.
When she isn’t writing, you can find her commuting to work and listening to audiobooks by her favorite authors, cheering on her boys at their year-round swim meets or fueling her coffee obsession, which she blames on her college job as a barista. She became a photographer to take better photos of her kids and dreams up story ideas while walking around the school campus or taking her Jack Russell Terrier on long walks around the neighborhood.
