Chances are you have no idea who I am or what my world is about.  And that is OK.  Because today you learn that my fascinating world has a little of this and a little of that.

My website’s tagline is “The World of Shannon McRoberts”.  Not because I am a pretentious person, but rather I had so many different facets to share it was hard to find a single title to tie them altogether.  I say this because there are three main focuses of the site:  my art, my books, and my poetry.

The Poet:  I have been working with poetry
the longest oferosion of the heart all my artistic endeavors. It was the first art form I could create.  For years I kept it under lock and key, but eventually I released it into the light of day.  My poetry is often dark with longing undertones that ebb and flow down the page.  I published a book of poetry call Erosion of the Heart; however, my newest poetry is found on my blog under the poetry category.

The Artist:   I have been dabbling in art almost as long as poetry.Brenda of the Elven Wood  From pencils, to photography, to painting.  My favorite medium used to be oil paints, but as I grew up I found it increasingly hard to find the time or space to work with the oils.  I even found it hard to work with something like charcoal while my daughter toddled around the house.  I found an outlet though that worked for me:  3D Art.  I use DAZ Studio and Poser to create varying works of art.  There is no mess to clean up after and I can chase my daughter while my pictures are rendering.

 

 

The Author:   The last frontier, at least for me.  cursed bloods ebook cover option 2 subtle with smaller nameTwenty or so years ago I tried to write a book.  It didn’t end well.  (No pun intended)  I thought writing was a medium I would not be able to wrangle.  Yet, in the back of my mind a sparkle for a story appeared.  I sat down and wrote that story.  Then, ideas just kept popping into my head for other stories.  That is how Zarra and Athine were born.  This is how I began my journey to “turn mythology on its ear”.  Currently I have six prose books available, each centering on this world I built inside my mind.  If you like Once Upon A Time, Xena, Buffy, or Lord of the Rings then you will like The Daughter of Ares Chronicles.
