Who is Shannon Eichorn?
Shannon decided that writing novels had to be the most challenging occupation possible, because one can never achieve perfection. A way to combine imagination and anything one could learn, writing scifi was obviously her ideal career. Her dad told her to get a real job. (Something about affording food?) So she followed in the footsteps of her role model Samantha Carter and studied aerospace and mechanical engineering.
What does she write?
Although she dabbles in fantasy and has plans for hard science fiction, she loves how soft scifi helps reenvision society. That's where she focuses.
Writers tend to write what they read. If the floor under her bookshelves collapses, it will be because of the space opera and urban fantasy novels.
