About Shauna

meHi and WELCOME! Thanks so much for dropping by! My name is Shauna Holyoak, and I write for kids and teens. It’s sorta the best job around.

Really, all you need to know about me is that I could totally subsist on frosted sugar cookies, movie-theater popcorn, and dirty Diet Coke. And all the books.

As a footnote, I graduated from Brigham Young University with a master’s degree in English Literature with an emphasis in creative writing. For ten years I wrote a humor column for the local paper in which I routinely embarrassed all my children (and occasionally my husband). It was a blast.

I currently write middle-grade and young adult fiction in Idaho Falls, Idaho where I live with my husband, six of our seven children and two naughty dogs. My debut novel, Kazu Jones and the Denver Dognappers, will be published by Disney-Hyperion on April 23, 2019. I also write a young-reader series called Mighty Meg which will be released by Little Bee on January 15th, 2019. Carrie Pestritto of Prospect Agency is my amazing literary agent.
