Shannon Dittemore official

Shannon Dittemore is the author of the Angel Eyes trilogy. She has an overactive imagination and a passion for truth. Her lifelong journey to combine the two is responsible for a stint at Portland Bible College, performances with local theater companies, and an affinity for mentoring teen writers.

Since 2013, Shannon has taught mentoring tracks at a local school where she provides junior high and high school students with an introduction to writing and the publishing industry. She blogs weekly for Go Teen Writers, posting instruction and encouragement for aspiring authors while emphasizing the importance of community.

The Sorting Hat placed Shannon squarely in Slytherin House, which was quite the shock. Her husband, Matt, is Gryffindor through and through, and together with their two children (Ravenclaw and Gryffindor) they make their home in Northern California (with a Husky-mix named Leonidas, who may or may not be an Animagus).

Shannon's stories often feature strong female leads grappling with fear and faith, as they venture into the wilds of the unknown. In many ways, she's writing her own life story. 

Shannon is represented by Holly Root (Slytherin) of Root Literary.
