Shannon doesn’t consider herself a writer. She considers herself someone who likes to write and has been doing so for most of her life. When she was a child, writing was a way to conjure herself out of a bad mood by finding creative ways to express her anger or frustration.
Shannon finds inspiration for her writing through journaling. She believes this allows her to explore ideas without feeling any constraints. For Shannon, sitting in front of a computer to create a story places too big of an expectation on the finished product. Writing in a journal allows her personality and experiences to come through and ultimately her authentic story. It is this love of journaling that reinforced Shannon’s concept of combining stories with journaling. This is reflected in her Breadcrumbz Presents format. She believes that by getting girls to start journaling at a young age, it helps them to find ways to express what they are feeling, to address difficult questions, and to provide positive messaging.
Raising girls has provided a lot of insight about what lessons are important during the most critical growth years. Today there are a lot of products on the market that promote self-esteem. However, not many that really target self-acceptance.
Throughout this journey with each of the Breadcrumbz, girls are not only shown how to acknowledge who they are with their own shortcomings or flaws, but are guided through a process that suggests how to embrace them and to celebrate the difference they make in their lives.
A world where a trail of Breadcrumbz leads to friendship, connection, and acceptance. Shannan is launching a (first of its’ kind) interactive baking book and baking products line that provide tools necessary to learn how to connect while developing skills to bake.
My Crumby Guide to Failure is an entertaining new early reader and activity book takes on failing in a fun and meaningful way.
