Anna E. Shammas is a very young
author with a passion to write. At the
age of 5, she wrote her first story, Very
Snowy, which was recently published
by AuthorHouse. Very Snowy was a
sensational story about a little girl
named Anna who loved Christmas,
snow, ice skating, hot chocolate and,
above all, Teddy bears.
In Winter 2008, Anna became the
youngest author to join the Midwest
Writing Center after being invited for book signing and reading from her
first book. She was featured on local TV and newspapers across the
Quad-Cities, where she resides with her mother, father and two brothers.
Anna’s writings took another leap forward with three additional
stories at the age of 6: The Star That is An Angel, Imagine! and
The Fan That Does Not Stop Turning. These stories display the rich
imagination, poetry and story-telling abilities that Anna possesses at this
very young age. Likely to be the most prolific writer at the age of 6 with 4
published children’s books, Anna is a proof that age is not a hindrance to
imagination, creativity and talent.
