Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Don't you hate it when you buy a collection of short stories and find that the author is using it, not as a complete collection, but instead as an advertising tool? "Thanks for buying my book, now here are a bunch of stories that lead into other series I've got going!" Yeah, I hate that, too. So, I won't ever do it.
The thirteen stories included in Life is Short are complete and stand alone. There is no need to buy anything else to enjoy these stories.
Now, about those stories. They vary greatly, both in length and in subject matter. This is one of the reasons I love writing short fiction. I can explore a new idea or genre in just a few thousand words and just a few days of writing time. 
If you like twist endings like O Henry, humor like James Thurber, or a few thrills and chills ala Shirley Jackson and Stephen King, I would love it if you would give my collection a read. They are my inspiration for these stories.
Thank you for considering my book, and mostly, for being a reader.
Shawn Inmon

About the Author

Have you ever noticed how almost every author on Amazon is both a "bestselling" and "award winning" author? Well, so is Shawn Inmon. He once dominated the Lithuanian Clog Dancing Romance category for two heady days back in 2013. He also was named third runner up in Mrs. Marsh's third grade spelling bee in 1968. Somewhere, he still has the certificate to prove it. Although he has never matched either of these two career highlights, he keeps plugging away.
Shawn hails from Mossyrock, Washington--the setting for his first two books, Feels Like the First Time, and Both Sides Now. 
He is a full time author who lives in picturesque Seaview, Washington on the Pacific Ocean. 
Shawn learned everything he knows by having 400 different jobs, give or take a few. He worked as a Managing Broker of a real estate office, DJed at radio stations in Montana, Wyoming, Washington and California, sold stuff that you definitely wanted, cooked your hamburgers, fished for crabs, bought for department stores, and traveled the country with the Unlimited Hydroplanes. 
He is married to his high school sweetheart, Dawn. No one is sure why she puts up with him, as she once suffered a serious eye sprain when she rolled her eyes once too often at one of his "jokes." Shawn and Dawn have five daughters, a passel of grandchildren, and are the best pal of two chocolate labs named Hershey and Sadie, and serve a cruel taskmaster cat named Georgie Girl. 
To keep current with his writing, please "Like" his Facebook page: Facebook.com/ShawnInmonwriter.
Shawn has seven books available now, including the Time Travel novel The Unusual Second Life of Thomas Weaver, the rock 'n roll fantasy Rock 'n Roll Heaven, and the innocent romance Second Chance Love. He also has three non-fiction books, Feels Like the First Time, Both Sides Now, and A Lap Around America.
