May Nicole Abbey

Caroline Gregory and Shawnette Nielson were born in Southern California to a tight-knit family. Caroline earned her Bachelor of Arts in English from Brigham Young University in 1999, supervising and managing a bookstore during and after college. She currently has three children’s picture books that are in the process of getting published. Now a stay at home mom, she resides in Oklahoma with her husband and four young sons.

From gymnastics and acting to wrestling and construction work, Shawnette quickly realized that she had a flair for the unusual. At the age of 13 she started gymnastics only to switch it out for wrestling on the boy’s team her sophomore year in high school. After graduating she held a variety of jobs and worked as a nanny in the summer months. Although in essence a tomboy, Shawnette always longed for a feminine role model in modern media. At the age of 21, she went to St. Louis, Missouri to serve a mission for her church. She now lives in Arizona with her husband and three children.

Frustrated with the morals and messages found in much of contemporary fiction, unable to find heroines with which they could relate, and discovering many of their family and friends felt similarly, Caroline and Shawnette teamed up to write a wholesome story that contained page-turning adventure and passion, but with a strong, moral message of God and honor.

The sentence, “I had a dream once that I flew” came to Shawnette’s mind one summer afternoon in 1997. Rushing around for a pen and paper, and unable to find either, she finally settled for a computer with a printer that was out of ink. The words tumbled forth without control and Shawnette’s fingers flew to keep up. Thus was born the beginning of “The Dreamer”. In later years, she read those first few pages to her sister Caroline, and together they developed the character of Rachael as well as the adventurous story and path of growth that she goes on. They both feel Rachael will be an inspiration to many.
