About

Courtney Shosh is an author of women’s and inspirational fiction, as well as poetry. Prior to focusing on creative writing, she worked for seven years in editing, public outreach/education, and communications in the governmental and nonprofit sectors. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Natural Resources, all from the University of Michigan. She is a member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA) and Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and has served as a first-round judge for the WFWA Star Awards.

Courtney has lived a life of wonder and adventure including once helping to relocate a grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park, fighting two forest fires, working with inner-city schools, and spending more than fifteen years as a stay-at-home parent, the greatest adventure of all. She believes the key to a happy life is looking up from the routine and taking in the small miracles that surround us, shape-shifting clouds, the veins of a leaf, an unexpected smile. When she’s not writing or caring for her family, she loves learning something new or being swallowed by a forest.

She is seeking representation for her debut novel, Letting Go of the Sky, winner of the 2022 Colorado Gold Rush Literary Awards in the Women’s Fiction/Romance category.
