Hello. My name is Shannon and I am a Perth-based (that's Australia) writer and blogger and mother of three.
In a past life I worked in health research and spent a decade working in various universities and hospitals around Australia. I racked up a few degrees, travelled a bit and generally lived a happy, selfish life.
Then in 2007 I had a daughter [the Blonde Bombshell], and then another daughter in 2010 [Miss Curly Mop]. Finally, after much soul-searching, we decided to try for a third baby, and in 2012, our third daughter was born [Baldy Baby].
Any delusions that I was career minded went out the door, along with my dignity and waistline. And if I thought I was happy before I had my babies, then I did not realise the full power of looking into my own child's eyes and seeing the endless possibilities (and responsibilities) that lie within.
There is one other thing that brings me joy - writing.
I have always enjoyed the power of the written word. I'm much better at writing things, than saying things. I'm lousy in an argument and always think of witty retorts about half a day too late.
Whenever I am not referreeing fights between the girls, making vegemite sandwiches or hiding in the loo reading magazines, you can find me writing all over the place. No, I'm not a tagger - I am a writer and blogger and you can find me at:
I am also attempting my first novel. It should be finished by the time the girls finish high school.
