Shannon Fay was born in 1987 in Ottawa, Canada. Since then she has lived in Shanghai, Phoenix, and the U.K. She's learned that your hometown is not where you're from but where you choose to be. When she was a small child she dreamed about a girl who crashed her rocket ship on an alien planet. She wrote her dream down as a class assignment and has been writing ever since. She has a degree in journalism and is no stranger to non-fiction (though she still often finds it stranger than fiction). She currently lives in Nova Scotia.
