About Shari Swanson:

Shari Swanson

Shari Swanson grew up in the Los Angeles area, attending both UCLA (B.A. English Literature) and USC (J.D. Law). After many years practicing law, she decided to switch to her dream job of teaching middle school, which immersed her in the wonderful world of children’s literature and prompted her return to school to get her MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Shari traveled twice to Kentucky to walk where young Abe walked, plunk rocks into his Knob Creek, and descend into dark and creepy caverns where she could picture young Abe, trapped and hoping desperately that Honey would bring back help. She loves to think about unsung heroes in history, like Honey, without whom we may not have the heroes we read about today. Shari lives in the Los Angeles area with her husband, Todd, and their beloved dog, Honey. You can find her at
