Author Shana was born in Texas, United States. She spent most of her childhood in Colorado and lived in Mexico for a brief period when she visited the country as a foreign exchange student.
At the age of 17, Shana visited Japan with the intention of becoming a model. Throughout her modeling days, she used to write silly romance stories during the breaks in between her modeling shoots. Following her stint in the modeling field, Shana attended college for higher studies in Los Angeles and graduated with a degree in the subject of drama. After obtaining her degree, Shana attempted to write her second contemporary romance novel. She entered a writing contest with that novel and secured the third place.
This increased her confidence and motivated her to send the novel to several literary agents. But, none of them returned a positive reply. Shana felt that she was not able to fit her style of writing as per the rules governing contemporary romances. So, she decided to shift her focus to historical romance and concentrated to write her subsequent novels in that genre only.
By the time Shana started writing her first historical romance, she had gotten married to the love of her life. Her interesting love story motivated her to use it as the backdrop of her debut historical romance. Shana changed the time period of the story to make it look like a story of the medieval times and kept all the other elements exactly the same as her own romance story with her husband. After the successful first attempt, Shana set most of her subsequent books also in the medieval times.
She has said that she chose this time period due to its great dichotomy sense. According to her, the medieval time inspires thoughts of courtly grace, chivalrous knights, and grandeur. Shana looks forward to writing many more stories of romance in the future and hopes to keep entertaining her dedicated fans through her stories for as long as she can. The Sweetest Dark series written by author Shana Abe is comprised of a total of 3 books released between and This series is set in the post-Victorian England and consists of thrilling romances with adventure and riveting history.
