Who is Shannon?

I am and have been many things: a writer, an editor, a mother, and a geek. Also, a software developer, a project manager, an entrepreneur, a book reviewer, and a perpetual student.

Over the course of my working life, I have: started and sold a web design company; published books about the Internet, college financing, voodoo, and monsters; copy-edited a local arts rag; shepherded a nonprofit‘s intranet through several iterations; and managed an open source software development project.

I am available as a freelancer or consultant for writing, editing, proofreading, and website project management and development. Recent long-term projects include substantive editing of Public Interest Design Guidebook; developing the website, web-based documentation, and social network participation of the nonprofit Open Source project, iHRIS health worker information software; and editing and compiling the iHRIS project’s Implementation Toolkit. I have recently contributed to Kirkus Reviews, the Huffington Post, Blogcritics, SF Mistressworks, and Flashlight-Worthy Book Recommendations. I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.

For more about me, please see my CV.
