Shawn Michel de Montaigne


I began writing stories when I was six years old. In eighth grade my English teacher, Mrs. Borden, read one of my science fiction short stories to the entire class, to my enduring and nearly terminal embarrassment (I never really got over it). At nineteen, while sitting at work in a tiny gas-station booth, I started my first novel, having been inspired by Terry Brooks' The Sword of Shannara. It was a fantasy work that never saw the light of day (thank God), and one that nearly convinced me to quit writing completely and forever. After many stops and starts, I have endeavored to persevere with my writing until hell freezes over. ~~*~~
