Author: Shonna Slayton

SHONNA SLAYTON is the author of the YA novel Cinderella's Dress and its sequel, Cinderella's Shoes, both fairy tales set in the 1940's. She finds inspiration in reading vintage diaries written by teens, who despite using different slang, sound a lot like teenagers today. While writing Cinderella's Dress she reflected on her days as a high-school senior in British Columbia when she convinced her supervisors at a sportswear store to let her design a few windows--it was glorious fun while it lasted. When not writing, Shonna enjoys amaretto lattes and spending time with her husband and children in Arizona.
