Meet the Author

Shannon Hale

Shannon’s mother says she was a storyteller from birth, jabbering endlessly in her carriage as the two strolled through the neighborhood; once she could form complete sentences, she made up stories, bribing her younger siblings to perform them in mini plays. When she was ten, she began writing books, mostly fantasy stories where she was the heroine, and she continued writing secretly for years while pursuing acting in stage and improv comedy. After detours studying in Mexico, the U. K., and Paraguay, Shannon earned a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Utah and a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Montana. In the interim, she submitted short stories and novels to magazines and publishers, saving all her rejection letters which she has since laminated into one continuous 60-foot roll which she proudly unfurls to audiences as a testament to her dedication and determination.

Since the publication of her first book, The Goose Girl, in 2003, Shannon has become a beloved author to young readers as well as booksellers and educators. Her third novel, Princess Academy, earned her a Newbery Honor and is a The New York Times, Book Sense, and Publishers Weekly bestseller. Shannon has also written two books for adults, Austenland and The Actor and the Housewife. Shannon lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband, Dean, their children, and their pet, a small plastic pig.

    Just can't leave them on the shelf!

    I find myself anxious to get up in the morning at 5:30 to ride my exercise bike so I can read these books! So many of the books on the market are junk and so filled with inappropriate values that I have turned to teen literature much more often. This series has really captured my attention and kept it all the way through. So many times when I think that I know what is going to happen next, something unexpected pops up and takes you in a whole new encapsulating adventure. The first book was just a tiny bit slow to pull me into the story line but when I took off I just couldn't put it down or quit talking about it with my granddaughter and my friends. It is very clean and exciting, captivating and emotional. What a great story line - clear and yet subtle. I would recommend this series to anyone. Great story to read and share for conversation starters as moms to teenagers. Thanks Shannon!
