Shauna Joseph was born and raised on the beautiful island of Grand Bahama in the Bahamas. She is single and the fifth child of seven children. Shauna is a gospel recording artist, playwright, actress and artisan. Her passion for reading came from her mother and over time this developed into writing short stories and comedic skits. As a child Shauna was always writing something, a pen and paper was always nearby but singing was at the forefront and that’s what she pursued.
Transitioning to Published Author
Even though music became a big part of her life she never stopped writing but they were always tucked away in a drawer. The day she embraced her talent for writing was when the short skits were removed from the drawer and graced the stage. Those short skits eventually grew into a major stage play. This fueled the fire to keep writing and to revisit the book ideas that were written down years ago. In November of 2014 she became a published author releasing her first novel ‘To Begin Again’ book one from The Fresh Start Series followed by book two ‘Second Chance’.
Shauna loves to write books that have mystery, drama, suspense, romance and a hint of humor from a Christian perspective. The books she grew up reading were set outside of her island life, but rarely did she read about people with her background, her culture. She learned so much about other places and other cultures that she wanted others to learn about island life through her books.
As an author/artist, Shauna Joseph's heart’s desire is to be able to use her gifts and talents to encourage and strengthen the body of Christ and to share the gospel with those that don’t know it, but more importantly to give God glory.
