Shannon HumphreyStyle: Science fictionI’m Shannon Humphrey, from Little Rock, Arkansas. Raised in the country, I spent my summers fishing with my grandfather, going to church with my grandmother, and shelling purple hull peas. Watching how hard my family worked instilled a hard work ethic in me. I worked two jobs through law school and paid for my education with scholarships. But I also had big dreams. So now between practicing law and fighting traffic in Los Angeles, I write stories. My first book was Hope Defined, about a preteen girl whose genius is connected to space. Now my second series is Skin Trials that will be published throughout 2017.
