Born in the United States, author Shawn Kobb has spent a good portion of his adult life traveling around the world and has lived in Ukraine, The Bahamas, Austria, and Afghanistan. He draws upon these international experiences to flavor his writing and hopes to offer his readers a glimpse into places they may otherwise never be able to visit.
Shawn has worked as a diplomat, journalist, 911 operator, and in the theater, both on and off stage. Working with animals has always been his greatest love and if he was smart, he would have made a career from that. Instead, he's volunteered with several organizations around the world from rehabilitating falcons in Virginia to making toys for baboons in Namibia.He currently lives in Virginia with his wife and dog.
