Shannon Messenger graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts where she learned--among other things--that she liked watching movies much better than making them. She's studied art, screenwriting, and television production, but realized her real passion was writing for kids and teens. She's the author of the middle grade series, KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES (Simon & Schuster, Aladdin) and the young adult novel, LET THE SKY FALL (Simon Pulse). She's also one of the founders of WriteOnCon, a free online Writer's Conference for kidlit writers. She lives in Southern California with her husband and an embarrassing number of cats.
