Welcome to the Official Website of Author Amy Shannon.

I am a writer, poet, book reviewer, avid reader, and most of all, a story teller.  I  write

crime dramas that have romance undertones. My characters have a depth to them, and each is unique as all people are. Most of my stories have Female main characters, but two have male main characters ("Fettering Shadows" and "Shattered Pages")

Browse the site to check out my books, and each book has a purchase link to amazon.com.
