M. Shawn Petersen

M. Shawn Petersen has always been a storyteller—as soon as he could talk, he began creating stories. Although he always aspired to be a writer, Petersen first opted to travel the world, spending long stints in Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, and France, giving him the opportunity to learn both Spanish and French along the way. Infected with the travel bug, he became a flight attendant, allowing him further opportunities to travel the world.

After reading The Secret, Petersen began working deliberately on creating a better life for himself and returned to his early passion of storytelling. His first novel, Stella and the Timekeepers, is the first in a series. He currently enjoys his time divided between Portland, Oregon; San Francisco; and Los Angeles.
