Hi, I’m Shawna Atteberry, a writer, teacher, and baker. My love for writing began in the second grade when I wrote my first short story set on Venus (and that’s all I remember about it). My love for teaching began in high school when I started teaching a Sunday School class, and my love of baking began in the 4th or 5th grade when I received an E-Z Bake Oven for Christmas. I have worked many jobs over the course of my life, but at heart, I have always been and will always be a writer, a teacher, and a baker
As a writer, I have researched and written theological books and articles. In addition, I’ve edited religious education materials and published one book, What You Didn’t Learn in Sunday School: Women Who Didn’t Shut Up & Sit Down, (Wipf and Stock Publishing, February 2013). I’ve also written three unpublished novels. When it comes to fiction I love to write urban fantasy.
I started teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) as a volunteer seven years ago. During the pandemic, I became a certified ESL Instructor and started teaching ESL at the college level. I still teach Sunday School occasionally, and I’ve also taught at local and national conferences.
In my free time, I cook and bake for friends, crochet, knit, and read. You can follow my cooking and baking adventures on Instagram. I am an avid science-fiction/fantasy fan and consume books, TV shows, and movies in that genre. I just moved to Lincoln, NE, and I’m looking forward to getting to know my new home.
