Hi, I’m Shawna Atteberry, and I am a writer, researcher and editor. After making the decision that being self-employed and working alone from home were not for me, I am venturing back into the job market, looking for a full-time writing/research/editing position in Chicago. In previous careers I have researched and written theological books and articles. I have also written novels and edited religious education materials. I have published one book, What You Didn’t Learn in Sunday School: Women Who Didn’t Shut Up & Sit Down, released in February 2013. I am also an ordained minister and did pastoral work for over 10 years. I would like to find a position writing and editing for an organization that is working to make the world a better place.
This site is an archive of my religious writing. I will post new things from time to time, but as religious writing is not my focus right now, those times will probably be few and far between. I do want to say thank you to all of who stumble onto this little blog and take the time to leave a comment or email me. I really appreciate you taking the time to both read my work and respond.
I live in Chicago with my husband Tracy. In my free time I like to take long walks along Lake Michigan and through downtown Chicago, cook for friends, crochet, knit, and read. I am an avid sci-fi/fantasy fan and consume books, TV shows and movies in that genre. I still preach and teach at my local church but am no longer in ordained ministry.
