Hi, I’m Shannon Anderson, your instructor!

I've taught for 25 years, from first grade through college level. The highlight of my career was being named one of the Top 10 Teachers who inspired the Today Show. I started writing children's books 10 years ago and now have 14 traditionally published books, with more on the way.

I've had so many people ask me how to write picture books and get them published, I decided to teach courses sharing all I know. I'm the former Regional Advisor for the Indiana SCBWI and have made it onto the Amazon bestseller list. If you want to learn more about me, visit
