Hi, I'm Beni (B B) Shepherd, musician, educator, and author of The Glister Journals, a realistic fiction series. Music, horses, literature, and art are lifelong passions. Experience to the contrary, I remain a hopeless romantic.
I am a graduate of Cal Poly University (music performance) and Chapman University (education) and currently teach full time, somewhere over 400 students a year. I live in the Bay Area, California, with my youngest daughter and a very silly cat named Buu. When I'm not working, I'm writing. I look forward to the day I can write full time.
The Glister Journals follows Allison, an often confused and distracted but quietly determined autistic girl, through high school. The story is about friendship, acceptance, first love, and has coming of age and equine themes. Bronze is revised and ready for a new edition. The second book is nearing completion.
