Welcome to the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Hello! I’m Shannon A. Thompson—YA SFF author, librarian, and neighborhood cat lady.
- During the day, I am the Program Manager of The Story Center for the Mid-Continent Public Library, the largest library system in Kansas City, but at night, I write stories about monsters and mayhem. I’m currently revising a monster book that takes place in space. I’m represented by Katelyn Uplinger at D4EO Literary Agency.
- From 3/20-4/20, all Clean Teen Publishing books have a 60% discount as part of the Authors Give Back sale on Smashwords. Did I mention book 1 & 2 in both of my series are now free? Stay inside and read
- I’m addicted to coffee, KDramas, and Sailor Moon. I most recently finished My Holo Love, and I’m dying for more recs.
- I have two cats that I call my little gremlins: Boo Boo & Bogart. Follow me on Instagram to see photos.
- I’m on Wattpad, where you can read the Tomo trilogy, a YA dystopian set in the near future, where an illegal drug causes the user to see the future.
- If you have any questions for me, ask away on my FAQ page! I’m always here to answer.
- I’m on TEAM PURPLE this year.

“Do you want to escape here? I can help you.” Dex wanted out of this place.
Nash smiled, “Yes, but now is not the time. We have to wait for her to hatch. I need her for a successful escape. It’s why I implanted a song in the guard’s mind to put her with me.”
“You manipulated my friend Trey?” Dex wiped a hand down his face. This guy Nash was dangerous. Dex could feel it, only now, Dex felt it was time to stop trying to be the nice guy. He would survive. Finding a way to say his family would start with getting out of here, even if making a deal with this little devil would do it.
Nash lifted an eyebrow, “I hummed him a tune.”
“Whatever. You want my help getting out of here? I’m offering as long as we go our separate ways.”
“I will take your willing help.” Nash cocked his head to the side, “Although, if I wanted it, I could make you give it, you know.”
Dex crossed his arms over his chest, “Isn’t a free give better?”
“Oh it is. What will you give me for helping you get free?”
Dex frowned, “Give you? I got nothing.”
“What are you? I like to know what kind of creature I’m bargaining with.” Dex didn’t want to give this imp anything.
“I am many things, yet in part, not a human like you.”
Dex caught a hint of regret in his tone. Dex could swear Nash had a hungry gleam in his eye. Trey had warned him that Nash was pied piper and Rumpelstiltskin. Dex knew the pied piper had something to do with music. He had no idea what a Rumpelstiltskin was, and he had a feeling he shouldn’t mention it to Nash.
“You need to tell me specifically what you want before I can agree to anything.”
One side of Nash’s lip kicked up. “Her. The pixie-human. Give me her.”
Dex frowned, then scratched his head. Why would Nash ask him to give up the pixie-human? The girl wasn’t his to give, he didn’t even know what it looked like.
“Not mine to give.”
Nash shrugged, “Then I won’t help either of you.”
Thank you for coming on, LM!

Has your writing schedule changed?
I’m still working full time from home, so I typically write one hour before I clock in, as well as one hour during my lunch break, and I write during my weekends.
Right now, I’m taking it day by day, writing what I can when I can. 🙂
