Shawn P. McCarthy has been writing both fiction and non fiction articles and books since he was a teenager. He and his family live in Massachusetts, where he spends a lot of time renovating old houses, paddling a kayak and hiking with his spoiled rotten dog. Reluctantly, and through months of practice, he has learned how to type with a cat perched on his shoulder.
