Shannon L. Arrant is a wife and mother to three human children and many four-legged animal ones that also happens to be living with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (an autoimmune disorder that affects the nervous system that is similar to Multiple Sclerosis) and Fibromyalgia. A self-described 'jack of all trades; master of none', she happily expresses her creativity through writing, directing, acting, and crafts. Although an adult an allegedly too 'mature' for such things, she firmly believes in the power of dreams and makes time to get lost in her head, daydreaming, on a regular basis.
