Growing up Shannon Primicerio was always a storyteller, captivating audiences everywhere from the classroom to the dinner table. She was told for the first time that she could make a career of writing when she was only seven years old and she has been working toward that goal ever since.
At the age of twenty, Shannon grew bored with typical college assignments and writing term papers, and she set out to write a book. As a result of her efforts, she was offered her first publishing contract, and her first book—The Divine Dance—was on bookstore shelves internationally before she even graduated from college.
She went on to get her B.A. in journalism and a minor in Biblical studies from Biola University in 2003 and has been writing and speaking fulltime ever since. With nine titles to date, Shannon has become a popular voice among Christian teens and twenty-somethings across the nation.
Shannon was the recipient of the North County Times Excellence in Writing award in 2000, and the San Diego Christian Writers' Guild Nancy Bayless Award for Excellence in Writing in 2003. She has been interviewed on radio and television programs across the nation and was recently featured in such media outlets as PBS' Religion and Ethics Newsweekly, The Harvest Show and TIME magazine.
Shannon's ministry spans the globe, as her books are available in several languages. She also serves as a mentor to young authors through the Jerry B. Jenkins' Christian Writers' Guild. Her articles have appeared in Marriage Partnership and BRIO magazines. In 2006 Shannon and her husband, Michael, traveled to Lima, Peru as part of the annual BRIO magazine mission trip.
Currently, Shannon resides in Southern California with Michael. The Primicerios are a fun-loving couple who enjoy watching baseball, playing Bocce ball, flying kites, and hanging out at the beach. An avid baseball fan her entire life, Shannon adopted the New York Yankees as her team of choice when she married Michael, a New York native.
