C.M. Shaw
C. M. Shaw’s journey to becoming an author isn’t exactly the orthodox version. In fact, one could say, her journey to authorship was accomplished by the Grace of God alone through His agents...that and utter perseverance. If truth be told, this native-born Omaha, Nebraskan had to bring her high school English grade up to satisfy her first love… Basketball. The ultimatum was simple: bring the grade up and continue to play.
With writing being the farthest thing from her mind, God sent his agent to help bring her grade up so she could play Basketball, or so she thought.
With a whole new world opened up, submitting to an inner demand, she began to write short stories. Unbeknownst to her those short stories became the first signs of a novel.

During her time at Grace University, where she played basketball for two years, a mentor suggested she publish her manuscript. She graduated from Grace University with a Bachelor’s in business, which included a dual major in Biblical Studies. When given the opportunity, she wrote articles for their newsletter named “Grace Tidings.” Additionally, she wrote various articles for “The West O” a locally owned and operated not-for-profit newspaper.

Unfortunately, her first attempt at publishing her novel failed due to the publishing company being a predator and a fraud. Given a second chance, she basically rewrote her first attempt and penned several more manuscripts to make it into a series, drawing inspiration from her inward struggles and experiences. The leader of the victims group helped put C. M. in contact with a traditional publisher who was said to be very particular. C. M. Shaw's Unexpected Fate Series was accepted by a traditional publisher, who was said to be very particular.

However, success proved to be just as elusive as ever. After a mutual falling out with this traditional publisher, their contract was terminated, thus she faced another failed attempt at getting her works published. Discouraged and dismayed, with practice, patience, and perseverance, C. M. Shaw published her family-friendly works independently and respectfully saves the preaching for the preachers.
