Quotes[edit]

  • "After reading the first three pages of Shauna Glenn's new book, Heaping Spoonful, I sent her a text message telling her I wanted to marry her writing. Glenn is a literary artist. She has an extraordinary way of taking you from the past to the present to develop her characters. From the opening scene, Glenn uses her magic to pull you into the complicated mind of the book's main character as she deals with the death of her husband. Heaping Spoonful is a real page turner that will no doubt be the first of many successful novels by this new talent." – Hal Brown, publisher Fort Worth, Texas: The City's Magazine
  • “For a long time, I didn’t have a voice, but I’ve found it. I think my story can help other people find their voice and start genuinely expressing themselves.” – Shauna Glenn.
