Shannon Reckler

Average Rating:

Shannon Reckler is a southern girl at heart, who grew up in a small town in North Carolina. She currently is finishing college, and living in the mountains. Her feline, Ember, keeps her company while she is up late trying to finish whatever story is locked in her mind. She is passionate about writing as well as cooking. Nothing means more to her than her family and friends, and she can’t wait to return to her hometown someday. Shannon is a true hopeless romantic and believes in a soul mate for everyone, and that you should love as much as you possibly can. She knows life is short, and feels that there is no point in wasting it on a life you don’t want to live, so she plans to have fun and enjoy every moment.

Q. What are some of your hobbies and interests?

A: Other than writing, I love to cook and entertain. I love having friends over to try new dishes I have created or recipes that I was excited to try. I also love to sew and quilt, a hobby I enjoy and do with my mother and grandmother. As for an interest, music is probably my biggest one. I like many genres, and I don’t think I could go one day without listening to music. I love that it is able to connect people in ways they may not be able to do so themselves, and that it has the ability to manipulate emotions. 


Q. Why did you choose to write romance fiction?

A: Originally I was going to be a newspaper reporter, but one day I decided that I didn’t want to write what other people wanted me to write. I have always had a very active imagination, and switching to writing fiction was a natural shift for me. 


Q. What do you find to be the hardest thing about writing?

A: Currently, my biggest challenge is my time. I am a college student, working full-time, and trying to get my writing career started. I take my laptop to work, and any spare moment I have, I try to get my ideas down on paper. 


Q. Do you have a favorite quote?

A: I have a lot of favorite quotes, but the first one that comes to mind is by William Shakespeare; “If music be the food of love, play on.” I actually have this one tattooed on my foot. 


Q. Where does your inspiration to write romance come from?

A: I think you can find inspiration everywhere. I have always been a hopeless romantic, and just being out in public and seeing a couple holding hands can be inspiration. Love is easy to find, and it’s so much fun to write about. I am in love with love, and enjoy the fact that I can make someone else experience happiness by reading my books. 


Q. Do you have a favorite author?

A: Of course I do. I love to read, and if I had more time I know I would probably read a few books a week. I love Christine Feehan, J.R. Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Christine Warren. I also am a huge William Shakespeare fan, and one of my favorite books of all time is Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.
