I was born in San Antonio, Texas, and am a southern girl through and through. I grew up listening to my father, Paul Shannon, tell stories to me and my sister. He inspired in me a love for storytelling and writing. I am a published author of 6 Science Fiction/Fantasy novels, but am always trying to hone my skills.

I live on a farm and love animals and gardening. I have a black belt in Taekwondo. I was a High School Chemistry teacher, a District Science Instructional Coach, Retired, then back to work as an eighth-grade science reacher, now re-retired. Yay!!

davisr (Rhonda): Okay, I need some more help: I keep getting remarks about the quotation marks. I've researched it, and I'm doing what is required, but people say they are distracted by all the marks. Suggestions???
May 25, 2016 at 10:45PM
    nor84: I sent you a PM. Yes, you do have a problem in that both double quotes and single quotes are being used ("') next to one another, as shown, and double quotes seem to be used for narrative passages, not just for dialogue.
    May 26, 2016 at 3:56AM
    davisr (Rhonda): Thank you, I read the PM, and appreciate the input!
    May 26, 2016 at 9:30AM

    I am Cat: I'd like to let the fans of Rhonda (davisr) know that she's been in an accident on the farm. She will eventually be ok, but it involved (as often happens in Texas) a mama cow, a calf, a large wooden slat of wood, metal bars, human flesh and bone, and a margin of error.

    As can often happen in the world of farms... The cow won, and Rhonda's jaw and head LOST. :(
    She has a severe concussion, along with a broken jaw (in two places) and will be off ALL electronics, including computers, TV, phones, email... everything for an entire week.
    I wanted to check her PM box and send out announcements, but it has come to my attention that in so doing, I would be unable to review her work from my own computer...
    and so, I'd posting in several places so that her fans will know that she is not ignoring them, she is seriously injured.

    Please show support and continue to review her work, we all need to stick together at times like this.
    She is a wonderful writer, and an amazing human being. IF you'd like to leave her a message, you may do so...

    Thank you,
    January 26, 2016 at 5:18PM
    patcelaw: Cat, I am so glad you let us know about this. Dear God I pray will heal Rhonda quickly and without lasting effects I pray this in Jesus' Name, Amen
    January 27, 2016 at 1:05AM
    JTStone: Still gettin' better I hope.
    I miss you while you're away. Just thought I'd stop by and let you know I was thinkin' bout you.
