As a lifelong artist and reader, Shannon Donahue has always enjoyed taking inspiration from characters in her favorite books as well as real life. While Shannon has loved both reading and art for as long as she can remember, it’s only recently that her two passions have entangled. You may have seen her artwork on the t-shirts of OSRBC members at conventions and book signings or included with new release swag from Sarah Maclean. In October, Shannon will be launching a Kickstarter for her first calendar that’s themed around reading romance and the communities we create when we share what we love. Shannon currently lives in Atlanta, working as a florist by day, combining her love of art and HEA’s by night, and doting on her nieces and nephew in her spare time.
