Shawna J.C. Tenney
Shawna J.C. Tenney is an author and illustrator with a passion for picture books. Shawna graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration from Brigham Young University in 2004. Since then, she has created artwork for many children’s books, magazines and games. It took Shawna a while to discover that her true passion lay in writing and illustrating her very own stories. Brunhilda’s Backwards Day is Shawna’s first book as both author and illustrator.
Besides the process of making art, Shawna also enjoys being involved in the writing and illustration community. She is the host of the Stories Unbound Podcast, a show for the creators of children’s books, at the Oatley Academy of Visual Storytelling. She also enjoys volunteering for her local chapter of the SCBWI.
Shawna lives in Utah with her husband and two daughters.
