Come freely. Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring. — Dracula

Welcome to By My Pen, a website dedicated to sharing stories.

I’m Shannon Simcox, writer, journalist, avid reader, Penn State alum, and Philly sports fanatic.

Depending on what brought you here, you may want:

  • to navigate over to the blog to see what books I’m reading and creative writing projects I’m working on
  • to work with me browse through the services that I offer and how to get in contact on that tab

In general, I’m so happy that you found this site and are here to share in the fun.

If you’d like to reach me, you can email Also, follow me on Instagram and Twitter.
