Who Is Shannon Spruill?

Shannon Spruill was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and she now resides in Buffalo, NY. Shannon graduated Suma Cum Laude from Bryant and Stratton College with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a master’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Boston University. She is a Senior Market Development Specialist in Finance at Ingram Micro, where she has been employed for 20 years. Looking for a new road to travel, Shannon decided to pursue her lifelong desire to write her first book. Her desire has always been to write fiction, but she felt she had a story to tell.


Shannon’s first book was released December 1, 2010. “My Reflection in the Mirror” is a look at some personal demons that she had to overcome. She hoped by telling her story she would inspire and empower other women.


October 4, 2013, Shannon lost her son Brian in an automobile accident. This was a devastating tragedy but instead of sinking into a dark place, Shannon grieved and picked herself up with the help of God and began helping other parents that have lost a child. She started the Buffalo Chapter of Bereaved Parents of the USA. She also published her second book, “The Shattered Mirror: Picking up the Pieces.” This book was about how she copes with the death of her son. Because she felt that both these books were her personal testimony, she combined both books and published as one. That book had a makeover in April 2018; New title and book cover. New title is Tribulation to Victory: Birth of a Queen.


Shannon released her 3rd book on April 22, 2017, Forbidden To Tell, and her 4th book, Her Vanishing Heart, was released September 16, 2017. Both books are fiction. Her 5th book was released April 1, 2018 and it is titled, “Grace Noble – Murder by Grace.” She is also the CEO and Founder of SMS Write On Publishing, LLC., and she is the treasurer and a board member of Our Curls, Inc, a non-profit agency for cancer support. She is also the convener of the Faith Missionary Baptist Church Women’s Fellowship Ministry. With all of her responsibilities, writing remains one of her top priorities second to serving God.
