After years of keeping journals, diaries and various spiral bound books of ideas, I jumped in and sought my dream of publishing a children's book series.
About Author, Shannon D Rhodes
Shannon D Rhodes (1973 - present) was born in Ft. Scott, Kansas. Her family moved numerous times within the U.S. before settling in Greenwood, Arkansas. She graduated from the University of Arkansas where she obtained her bachelor's degree. For the past 19 years she has been a successful Businesswoman working in Sales, Communications, Education, Analytics and Solutions. In 2009, after several failed pregnancies and experiencing multiple adoption frauds, she successfully adopted her daughter in a dramatic, yet amazing forty-eight hours after her birth. This chaotic experience and the story of her own life launched her dream of writing children's books. Ironically, she first penned "In Search of a Family," a yet to be published novel detailing her experiences to motherhood. In early 2014, she started a small business and launched her first children's book series under the same name; My Kind of Family.
About My Kind of Family
Intended for traditional and nontraditional families alike, My Kind of Family is a series that engages young readers in an innovative, interactive process that tasks them and their caregivers, whoever they may be, to fill in names, select pronouns, and color the details of illustrations. In so customizing their books, children better identify with characters and storylines reflective of their own family situations. The stories focus on values and qualities that help children better understand themselves and those around them. Visit our kid books online store!
