Shannon Nering

If reality television hadn't been invented, Shannon Nering wouldn't know what to do for a living! Ms. Nering's a much-in-demand docu-reality producer and director, whose savant-like understanding of the genre, combined with her ability to create intimate bonds with her subjects, pays off in riveting television . . . and now riveting novels like Reality Jane.

“Shannon Nering does a good job of plausibly illustrating the soulless, cutthroat world of show business and provides a great cast of characters to perfectly complement the story.
