F.C. Shaw is the author of the children’s mystery series Sherlock Academy. She loves children’s stories, Sherlock Holmes, and mysteries, so she had to write a book combining all three. She spends her afternoons writing for kids and her nights dreaming of new stories. She lives with her husband and two sons in a home they have ambitiously dubbed “The Manor” in California.

With teaching credentials and a master’s degree in education, she has taught every grade from kindergarten to college. When she’s not plotting stories, she teaches visual arts in local schools and enjoys a good game of Scrabble.
