I’ve dedicated Saturdays to introduce members of my writing group on this blog.

Thus far, I have introduced several members of Trinity Writers’ Workshop (TWW) and will continue to do so in future weeks.

Today, however I’m introducing a member of the fabulous WANA1011 group. Kristin Lamb offered a class on social networking and 100 eager apprentices (including me) joined her WANA1011 group. We’ve learned a lot from Kristen and bonded as a tight WANA1011 group (WANA is an acronym for We Are Not Alone).

One of my writing buddies from this group is Shannon Esposito.

Shannon Esposito lives in a magical gulf coast town with fluorescent sunsets, purple dragonflies and the occasional backyard alligator. Her mysteries transport readers to Florida without the hefty price of airfare. Although she knew from the age of five she wanted to be a writer, she briefly entertained the idea of being a scientist, until she found out it involved math, which gives her hives.

She shares this little corner of paradise with her husband, twin boys and dogs. If she’s not writing, you’ll find her coddling one of the above, hiding with a book or daydreaming with her toes in the sand.

Shannon has a new cozy mystery out: Karma’s A Bitch (A Pet Psychic Mystery)




Darwin Winters, reluctant pet psychic, is determined to leave her family’s paranormal past behind and lead a normal life. So she strikes out on her own and opens up a new pet boutique in St. Pete, Florida. When a local homeless man she befriends is found dead, and the police assume it’s a suicide, Darwin has no choice but to use her gift to help collar the killer.

She adopts his grieving mastiff, Karma—and with the dog’s help—tries to piece together the events of that fatal night. Accepting the visions is one thing, but can she solve the mystery without revealing her powers to the jaded, yet drool-worthy, detective in charge of the case? Or will the killer put an end to her psychic sleuthing and bury the truth for good?

  1. I like the idea of dragon flies, alligators not so much. Love the book cover.

    Sharon, thanks for doing this post about our classmate, Shannon. It’s so nice to get to know more about one of our Wana1011. I’m having a hard time keeping up with everyone and all the posts, but it’s all new and I guess an adjustment period is normal. Shannon’s books sounds really good!
