ABOUT SHAWN BURGESS

Shawn Burgess is a speculative fiction author. He has a BA in English from the University of Florida, and focused on literature for his postgraduate studies at the University of North Florida. His travels have taken him to most parts of the country, where he often draws inspiration for his stories through meeting interesting new people and experiencing unique places. Beware! If you find yourself behaving curiously within the crosshairs of his vision you might end up on one of his pages.

In his spare time, Shawn enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, travelling, attending concerts, going to Gator football games, reading, and playing golf. He typically makes year-round preparations for Halloween by building props and elaborate sets.

Shawn claims Jacksonville, Florida as his home, but he has lived all over the southeastern United States. Many of his stories are set in those towns he once called home, or in fictional places inspired by them. He says, “I enjoy building upon the natural mysteries surrounding those areas I’ve personally experienced.”

The Tear Collector is Shawn’s debut novel, but he’s currently working on a YA Urban Fantasy novel, as well as The Tear Collector’s sequel. He is active on social media, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. You can find him at @ShawnBinJax.
