Hello World! My name's Shane Barr. I live near Orlando, Florida with my husband and teen-aged daughter. An avid reader, I will read pretty much anything I can get my hands on! My creative interests are varied--I have been known to paint, draw, sketch, knit or even make jewelry, but I love to write.
Like most responsible parents out there, I found myself reading all of the books that my daughter enjoyed. Some were pretty awesome--others, not so much. Recently, I decided that I wanted to write books that wouldn't require a heavy amount of censoring for my daughter--or other younger people to read and enjoy.
My first book to be released is Reset. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
What's In Your Mind?
I have spent the last few years lying to my parents. I pretend that I am listening to what they have to say yet all the while I am actively tuning them out. After all, I am a teenager and what could they possibly know that I can’t find out from my friends or Google? The day I realized the error of my ways started like any other.
All good things take time, patience, and a good deal of determination to accomplish. Reset took all of this and more from me, but none of it would have been possible without the love and support of some very dear people. The idea for Reset came to me four years ago. It took me a while to let the voices out of my head and put them down on paper.
The writing of a work of science fiction takes a great deal of research. Yes, it is fiction, but the best works of fiction have an element of truth that seem plausible. On this page, you will find links to some helpful sites that I visited in researching the science behind Reset.
Additionally, I serve on the Board of Directors for The Be Brave Foundation, a Central Florida charity that grants financial assistance to families of children fighting cancer. I am proud to announce that a portion of the sales of The Reset Trilogy will be donated to The Be Brave Foundation.
Thanks for reading Reset. Check back frequently for updates on my progress with Resist, book two of The Reset Trilogy.
