Shannon is a pink-haired single mom who's passionate about helping other parents ditch the toxic habits that prevent them from building deep relationships with their kids. She's a little obsessed with Hello Kitty and Mister Rogers, and has learned most of her life-lessons that hard way: awkwardly and often alone. She writes about anything that makes her heart stir-- especially parenting, mental and emotional health, sex, relationships, and weight issues. You can find more of her work on Medium--where her work gets more than 90,000 monthly reads!

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
