Shannon Wright

Shannon Wright is an actress, filmmaker, philanthropist and comedian. Just kidding. She’s a nanny and a singer/songwriter. You can typically find her at home writing, podcasting, or being an internet menace. When she does venture out into Los Angeles, it’s either to continue her search for the perfect oat milk matcha latte or to attend that month’s Emo Nite.


She is one half of the Three Books One Plot podcast. A podcast dedicated to the Twilight series where Shannon, her co-host G, and their rotating guest of the week each read Twilight and it's whacky official retellings. With every episode, Shannon and G give a nostalgia-driven, joke filled look at the world's craziest love story to ever be published three times by the same author.
