Shae Shannon was born in California where she lived until the age of 13. Her family decided to uproot and move to a small town in Oklahoma. It was fate, Karma, or coincidence that had put both Shae and her future husband on the paths of destiny and love. She spotted him in the back of a pickup truck while cruising town, his hot sexiness capturing her attention and her heart. One introduction later and she knew that he was her soul mate. Dustin was also from California, and had grown up only 30 miles from her.

 After marriage, Dustin joined the Army. They spent 9 years in northern New York and 4 years in Georgia. He served 3 tours overseas, and numerous stateside training exercises. It was during the long, stressful, lonesome deployments that Shae found she could escape into imagination and majestically teleport into juicy books. Her most prized gift came in the form of a kindle, sent from her husband in Iraq. She quickly filled her digital library, and adds to it every week.

 They are blessed with three kids ages 16, 10, and 5. Two dogs, a hamster, and a fish make for a chaotic crazy daily routine that Shae handles like a pro, and with a lot of humor.

 Needing to branch out more, Shae picked up her laptop and began to write, allowing her boisterous imagination to fly. After what seemed like an eternity, she finally created her first novel that soon became published by Siren Publishing. She was finally on the path of her dreams of becoming an author.

 Shae currently lives in Northwest Arkansas where the tea is sweet, the grass is green, and people still say ma’am and thank you. Every summer, they load up the family and head for the lake for swimming and fishing. There is not a water park or swimming pool in the world that could ever compare to a rope swing and a floaty. The only thing that will change is that Shae will be scribbling and writing as she floats on the water and works on her tan.

Q: Do you pre-plan your story before beginning?

A: Not really. I do a rough outline focusing on the main ideas. As I write, the story unfolds as the details fall in place. Even the main plot and major ideas change during the story at times. My mind will just suddenly take off and I follow. Some characters will try to lead me, and others let me lead them.

Q: What inspires the sex scenes?

A: Honestly, these are the easiest for me to write. Once I step inside the door of fantasy and erotica, I see the scene unfold down to the tiniest detail. (Creeper! Haha)

Q: Which are better, books or movies, and why?

A: No competition, books all the way. When you sit to watch a movie, you are observing their story from a distance. It’s cut and dry, what you see is what you get. If you pick up a good book, you transport into it. You become part of every emotion, climax, every conflict, and every relationship. You feel what the characters feel, and see through their eyes. You ride every emotion that takes place. There have been times where I have read the conflict and would get so nervous, mad, upset, and/or anxious that I would actually stop reading immediately. Of course, it wasn’t very long before curiosity got the best of me and I would continue. I would read as fast as I could to try and get to the happy part. There is just so much more connecting you to the characters through the lines of a good book.

Q: What types of books do you enjoy best?

A: I like a variety. Erotic vampires, shifters, sexy cowboys, bad boys, and bikers are probably my most read categories. I do love mainstream romance, historical romance, mystery and even poetry.

Q: What made you decide to write?

A: After every book, for some reason my mind thinks it has to continue the story. So, until I start a new book, my imagination runs wild. I thought it would be a fun way to get all of the crazy ideas together. When I set down with my laptop ideas flood me. I keep a notepad beside of me while I write. My mind will jump to future scenes ideas or previous scenes that I can add or change, so I scribble them down and use them.

Q: What things do you have to have when you write?

A: Besides the obvious, my laptop, my tigger pillow pet is a must. It is the perfect height to prop my computer on my lap. I also cannot live without my collection of thesauruses saved on my cell phone.
