Indie-Credible Authors: Author Spotlight on Shannon Dermott

For the whole month of September Little Read Riding Hood and Creative Deeds Reads are hosting a month long event called Indie-Credible Authors, where bloggers showcase lots of fabulous indie authors.  

Welcome to the Indie author spotlight today on the amazing and talented 
Shannon Dermott!
Shannon is an author of young adult and adult romance, sci-fy, paranormal and fantasy.  She currently has 3 series out, Cambion which has 4 books, Through the Lens which has 2 books and Balance Sheet which has 2 books.  She is also a coauthor for the book Alliance.  For today's feature I'm going to focus on her Cambion series.

I have read and reviewed all of the Cambion books.  In order they are:

Why do I love this series so much?

Luke the nephilim: "tousle of golden curls", "beautiful face", "sun-kissed skin and blonde head full of curls", "poster boy for Hollister".

Flynn the incubus: "the resident bad boy", "pure lust on a stick", "faux mohawk styled in that sexy messy hair perfection look", "looked like a walking ad of high fashion", "arrogant", "winter blue eyes", "pure lust", "darker hipper version of Abercrombie and Fitch".

Sebastian the demon: "Scottish accent", "tall, dark-haired and dazzling", "wickedly handsome and terribly tempting", "delicious sin", "blue eyes".


I LOVE this series!  All it's angsty, intense, love triangle sexiness!  Trust me, if you love paranormal romance reads, this is a must-read series!

Now for a little bit more on the fabulous author of this series:

Born in the north and raised in the south, Shannon Dermott is an author of paranormal romance and urban fantasy for young adults.  Although originally a northerner, she grew up during her formidable years in the southern heat, hanging out and having lots of fun.

It was during those years, she explored her creative side with fictional romance stories about all her teen crushes. Fun times!

Her love for reading constantly conflicts with her need to write.  Interestingly, she reads more police procedural than fantasy or romance.  When not reading or writing, Shannon is going to the movies, hanging out with family and friends, or best of all shopping.  She loves all kinds of music (current and the 80s) and is currently obsessed with Thirty Seconds to Mars.

Just as much love Shannon has for reading is her first passion for numbers and math. 
But though it began with her obsession of reading and math, weaving stories won out in the end.
