SHANNON MORONEY was a practicing teacher and counselor when violence tore her life apart. After personally discovering the lack of help available for families of criminals, she became a restorative justice advocate who speaks internationally on the ripple effects of crime. A volunteer with Leave Out ViolencE (LOVE) and Peacebuilders International, she is also a contributor to The Forgiveness Project. In 2011, Shannon's memoir Through the Glass was published by Doubleday Canada and became an instant national bestseller. In October 2012, it was published in the USA, UK, Australia and throughout the Commonwealth by Simon & Schuster.
Shannon lives in Toronto where she is happily remarried and the mother of infant twins.
