About Me

Shanda (rhymes with panda) comes from a whole family of different kinds of artists and entrepreneurs! She studied art in Atlanta and New York City. But before writing and illustrating kids books, she taught art to high-schoolers.

Shanda is the mama of two young girls and the wife of a cute web developer!

Her first books about robots (or anything for that matter) are DOLL-E 1.0 and the companion story, T-BONE THE DRONE.

Here is a cool interview about my experience as an author/illustrator.
