Shannon Work grew up in Del Rio, a border town in the dusty wilds of West Texas. Summers were spent on the ranch with her grandparents. When she graduated high school, she moved east to College Station and earned a BA in Journalism and MS in Land Economics from Texas A&M University. It was at A&M that she met an offensive lineman on the football team who swept her off her feet and taught her how to appreciate football (American football).

Most of her working life has been spent developing real estate, earning a national Best in America Living Award for one of her developments. 

Shannon and her husband are recent empty nesters and split their time between Houston, Texas, and Telluride, Colorado. Always with their laptops and dogs in tow.


When not writing or spending time with family, she likes to read, ski, and hike the mountains around their Telluride home. She's a huge Texas A&M football and basketball fan, and also loves rooting for the Houston Astros, San Antonio Spurs, and Denver Broncos. 

Shannon is the author of Now I See You, Everything To Lose, The Killing Storm, and Murder in the San Juans. Death in a Harsh Land, Book 5 in the Mountain Resort Mystery Series, is out now!
