Shannara Johnson is a US writer and editor who was born and raised in Germany. She lives in Vermont with her teenage son, two badly trained dogs, and one entirely untrainable cat.
As a person who gets bored easily, Shannara is unapologetically eclectic in her writing: from picture books to middle-grade and young-adult fiction, to horror short stories for adults, to self-help non-fiction—anything is fine, as long as it's fun to write and read.
Shannara is the author of several children's books, including the interactive Wordy Book Series, as well as a collection of horror short stories. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and a board member of the League of Vermont Writers (LVW).
