Shawn was born in San Diego, California, in 1990, where he lived until he was seven.
In high school, he won several awards both as a writer for and editor-in-chief of his student newspaper, prompting him to study journalism before deciding that his passion for writing was better directed at fiction.
He is the author of four books: The Flute Player, Brand-Changing Day, Particles, and The Assured Expectation of Things Hoped For. He is the editor-in-chief of Asymmetrical Press, a publishing company for the indie at heart.
Shawn currently lives in Helena, MT, with his wife and their cats Oliver and Worf.

One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country.
