Shauna's three great loves are her family, hosting dinner parties in her slightly-messy, normal home, and being a bookworm, and she believes that vulnerable storytelling, hard laughter, and cold pizza for breakfast can cure almost anything. Shauna and her husband have two wild and silly and darling boys.
