Shannen was born and raised in South Africa and moved to Canada in 2014 to complete her English degree. She has worked in Events Coordination and Marketing since, and is also a professional, but fairly inactive, makeup artist. Shannen is passionate about writing, and loves to work and learn and take on new challenges.
As a typical English degree major, she is addicted to tea and books, and has an awesome collection of antique teacups she has never used. Shannen loves to cook and bake and enjoys forcing others to try her strange kitchen experiments.
