Shawn Underwood is a native Washingtonian that writes humorous anecdotes for newspapers and magazines. She enjoys writing short clean funny stories about daily events, family adventures, funny true stories of moms, unique stories about returning to school and vacations and travel, amusing Christmas poems and stories, humorous stories about patience, her three well behaved children and her favorite subject, her husband.

Shawn lived in France with her family for a year in 2001-2002 and her misadventures of speaking the language and day-to-day living in a foreign country make amusing reading for young and old alike. All of her short meaningful funny stories are absolutely true with no embellishments, additives or preservatives. It is Shawn’s hope, after reading her stories, that you realize you don’t suffer the misfortunes of your spouse’s or children’s bad behavior by yourself–she suffers right along with you!.

Twenty five years of marriage and three teenage children give Shawn much fodder for her writings. Understandably, her family does not appreciate being in her observant cross-hairs and the subject of her material. Her writing is a good weapon to hold over their heads, to discourage future misdeeds.
