Shannon's Bio

Bats: Right

Throws: Right

Astrological sign: Cancer

Chinese Year of the Dragon (according to the placemat)

Current Weight:  A constant challenge thanks to those damn Keebler elves


Shannon began losing her hearing at age 30. Since then every day there's a new awkward situation. For the hearing people reading this, imagine not hearing a blow dryer next to your head. If you say "pardon me" using your inside voice, she's not going to hear it. She doesn't hear "s's" very well either. So it's a long day of piecing together quiet talkers, mumblers and filling in the "s's".  Thank goodness for texting and closed captioning. She feels most fortunate to have found Diamond Dogz of Arizona. 


In addition to this blog, she and co-author Riley are enjoying writing a collection of stories about this crazy invisible thing called hearing loss.
