Discovering books at an early age, Shawn grew to love the written word. Every genre was a new take on life. The realms of fantasy with its strong heroes and magical dragons called to him, while suspense and horror with its intriguing heroes and villains showed all of twists and turns that life held. Then again, late Saturday nights watching Creature Feature on Channel 18 with his dad, left memories that would help him turn into the writer that he is today. In 2010, Shawn published his first novel, Sense of Honor, and its sequel, Dragon's Chest. Turning what was originally to be a standalone novel into a series, The Tides of War. Also in 2010, Shawn co-authored Ripper's Row, with Donnie Light. 2011 brought the third installment in The Tides of War series, The Dark Caravan, and the second novel in the Ripper Trilogy, Ripper's Revenge which he again co-authored with Donnie Light. In 2012 Shawn stepped alone into the world of horror with Little Valley and Wolves in Springfield. 2013 will see a zombie short story, Mississippi Dead, and Welcome to Plainfield. A paranormal suspense story based off of evidence recovered by Shawn's paranormal research team, Ghost Hunt America on an investigation on the murderer - Ed Gein, as well as Rose Marie, the fourth installment in the Tides of War series. Along with the third installment in the Ripper Trilogy, Ripper's Wrath, followed by the complete series in one epic volume.
