About the writer/artist

Shannon Chou is a writer, artist, and game developer based in Southern California.With a background in ecology and studio art and a passion for writing, Shannon enjoys finding new ways to combine elements from all three fields in her creative projects.Her favorite themes to work with are usually centered around diaspora, found families, social identity, magic, and animals in clothes (and sometimes, magical animals in clothes).Shannon is currently focused on transitioning into game writing and narrative design, with special focus on immersive world-building and championing player agency.When she isn't trawling baby name sites for good npc names or stuck deep in an obscure wikipedia rabbit hole, Shannon enjoys cooking, watching animated media, playing video games "for research," and telling her cat not to jump on things (it never works).Currently available for full-time, freelance, and contract work!
