Gardiner, Shawn T.

Shawn T. Gardiner has been writing for years, ever since he was seventeen, when he started to pen his short stories called “Choices Unseen”. This born again Christian is multi-talented as he is also an avid musician and music producer in addition to his writing prowess. His passion for a good story motivated him to write novels of which he never sought to publish until now. “Every time I write, I always pictured myself getting ready to settle in and watch a good movie unfold, I just think its now time to share my stories.” He says. He loves all genres but has always leaned more towards religious adventures, stories of great triumph, murder mysteries, suspense thrillers, and of course fantasy. The Life Star, a fantasy series of epic stories that happened on the mystical planet of Willow Debulus, is the first introduction into Shawn’s writing world of a vivid imagination and a style all his own.

Shawn is a native of The Bahamas, from Freeport, Grand Bahama, where he lives with his lovely wife Cassandra and three children, Ashton, Savannah, and Cierra.
