Shauna works on everything from picture books to young adult novels.  She has edited the upcoming picture book, Little Pink Pup by Johanna Kerby, and has worked on Jack Higgins’ young adult action series written with Justin Richards, as well as Flygirl by Sherri L.

 Just to let you know Shauna was a big hit at our last First Page Session.  Hope this helps.
