About Me

Shaina Merrick

Writer, book lover, slow liver.


Shaina is currently working on a novel in between the day job as a PreK teacher and getting her bachelors degree in elementary education. Over the years she is learning what it is to live fully in the moment. Taking each day as it comes and finding the joy in the mundane and routine of living.

She has written a book review column for a newsletter and hosted her blog for many years. Writing is her life long love affair, and she is passionate about helping other writers hone their craft and giving them tips and tricks for their own stories.

She resides in Western Colorado, where she also writes and studies. She loves books, music, and hiking.
