More About the Author

Shannon DuBey is a professional computer geek by day, and a published author by night. The first printing of Unconditional was in 2007 and she has since published a children's story titled Timmy Meets His Match and begun work on both a new novel and another children's story.

While her life began in a rural community in the northern portion of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, the portion that looks like a giant mitten on the map, she currently resides in the area known by locals as "Metro Detroit". This move was made almost immediately after graduating from high school in the mid 1990's with the intent to obtain a bachelor degree in psychology and become a teen crisis counselor. Because college life tends to create bills rather than pay them, she accepted a full time position working on a computer help desk for a local company. she quickly discovered that while her passion lie with helping others, the technology field would pay the bills and allow her to help others in a different way.

Now some 15 years later, Shannon is still a self-professed "Professional Computer Geek" by day and spends what free time she can manage to find pursuing her artistic side. This comes most often in the form of writing and has resulted in two completed works to date with plenty more not far off.

"I write for myself first and foremost, but I hope that others will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it." ~ Shannon DuBey

Purchased this book to read for myself (a married mother of 2 young children). Not only did I enjoy reading the book, but it was an eye-opener for me to learn about the process of an individual finding themselves and learning who they truly are. As a parent it both saddened and empowered me. I am certain that I will be supportive of my children no matter what they are going through, and I will also be attentive to their actions and be involved in their life so that I'm aware of what's going on and what they are feeling. The struggle of this character was heart-wrenching. I was brought to tears several times during this book. Many times I felt like I wanted to jump into the book to help out, or give a hug, or listen. Thankfully there was an adult in this book who did just that...and saved a life. This book would be excellent for a young teen to read no matter their sexual orientation - it really puts into perspective just how difficult it can be for someone to be open about who they are, and how awful it is for them to be treated cruelly by their peers. Kids sometimes don't realize how their actions/words/attitudes affect others - making a joke or snide comment can be so very painful if you're on the receiving end. You never know what a person is going through, and your lack of understanding can push a little too hard and take a person to their extreme limits. Read this book!

I rated the book a 4 because I really liked it and actually read it in one sitting. I was compelled to keep reading to learn about how this young woman was going to deal with her life experiences and the strength it would take.
About 2/3's of the way thru the story slowed some but continue to read as it works through okay. It is a first novel and hopefully she will continue to write. I would definitely consider buying her next book.

The book was predictible and difficult to follow. There seemed to be lots of missing information about the college years. I felt like the author just wanted to get to the end of the book, and left out huge pieces of an important time in the middle. I tried to finish the book but gave up with about 75 pages left.
