About Me

Shadow Backus is a psychotherapist, yoga instructor, and massage therapist. She is the parent of 3 boys and enjoys exercising, organizing, writing, and spiritual awakening.

So far she has written numerous articles and a novel and is working on the second novel and plans for two additional novels to be done after these.

She and her novels are based in the Midwest where people still pull-over when there is a traffic arrow, instead of speeding ahead of other drivers before cutting into the only lane available.
