Shannon Connor Winward is a mommy and also, sometimes, a poet and author of fiction for children and adults. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in such venues as: Flash Fiction Online, Pedestal Magazine, Vestal Review, Basement Stories, Witches & Pagans Magazine, The Magazine of Speculative Poetry, and Dreamstreets.
Shannon is also a devotee of performance poetry, but she does not memorize her work; she's afraid that if she looks you in the eye from the mic she will fall in love with you, and really. Who has time for that?
Watch for more of Shannon in the upcoming anthologies Jack-O'-Spec: Tales of Halloween and Fantasy (Raven Electrik Ink), Twisted Fairy Tales: Volume Two (Wicked East Press) and Greek Myths Revisited (Wicked East Press), or visit her at http://ladytairngire.livejournal.com/profile.
