Shannon M. Gross


I am the mother of two elementary-school age boys, and have always dreamed of writing children’s books.  During a

night-time story telling session with one of my children, the story of Parker Panda materialized. Once Parker’s lunch-making antics reached paper, many more adventures featuring this character emerged.  Only after a divine meeting with the illustrator took place, the lovable Parker Panda was born, and is now becoming more than just a page in history.  I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, camping, jogging, socializing with friends, lounging on beaches, and living with my husband and two children in the

metro-Detroit area.

Hi, my name is Shannon!
