CARROLLTON, GA – Shannon Gill (pen name Shan Gill), Carrollton native and author of the children’s book Cosmic Kitty, is scheduled for a book-signing event at Georgia’s oldest bookstore, Horton’s Books and Gifts, located on the square of Carrollton, Georgia. The event will take place Aug. 12 from noon until 2 p.m. and will include the author’s instruction for creating the artwork associated with the story.

 

Gill’s new book was inspired by her childhood doodles of a cartoon that would become “Cosmic Kitty,” the principle character of the story. “CK,” as the story refers to her, travels between alternate dimensions of her world and learns valuable lessons regarding self-worth, compassion and the impact of bullying. The book also emphasizes metaphysics and mindfulness for young people and adults.

 

“I hope ‘Cosmic Kitty’ encourages kids and adults to be more open to things outside of their comfort zones,” said Gill. “Metaphysics and mindfulness can help people discover who they truly are while asking questions about their immediate realities.”

 

Shannon Gill is a life and business strategy consultant, author and coach. She has more than 20 years of corporate experience working in areas such as strategy, product, learning and development, operations and manufacturing with companies like Walt Disney in Hong Kong, e-Sylvan (subsidiary of Sylvan Learning Systems) in Baltimore, Maryland, and Total System Services, Inc. (TSYS) in Columbus, Georgia. In addition to her corporate experience, Gill has a unique and complementary blend of traditional and metaphysical training. She has a bachelor’s degree from St. Andrews College in Laurinburg, North Carolina, and an MBA from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
