Shannon Sue Dunlap writes books with a dose of laughter and a spoonful of love. One of the greatest compliments you can give her is saying her stories made you laugh-out-loud. She loves traveling around the world, singing tunes from classic musicals, and drinking Dr. Pepper. Shannon is a die-hard fan of happy endings and believes God has designed one for each of us.
The Writer’s Life
My ideas come from everywhere. You know the disclaimer at the beginning of books and movies about any resemblance to real persons being a coincidence? Yeah, right! Writers are always soaking in the people around them. (Not to sound creepy, but I once followed a stranger through the airport because I thought she talked like one of my characters, and I wanted to hear what she would say next.) One of my greatest hopes is that readers recognize themselves in my books. We’re all such a fabulous mix of flaws and greatness, and everyone is the hero or heroine in their own life story.
