Ron Shaw


Hi, I'm Ron Shaw a native of Atlanta, Georgia. I currently reside in Gwinnett County, Georgia with my wife and daughter. I attended Roosevelt High School in Atlanta and continued my education at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia for two years. I met my future wife in Atlanta after my second year at Mercer and transferred my junior year to Georgia State University in Atlanta. With new responsibilities in 1973, I became an Atlanta Police Officer while attending college full-time. I obtained a BA degree in English Literature from Georgia State University in 1974, and I retired from the Atlanta Police Department in 1996 after a very fulfilling and personally satisfying career. I'm an award-winning cover designer, bestselling, No. 1 Best Seller, and prolific author, writing in a wide variety of genres such as horror, science fiction, thriller, crime, paranormal, ghost, supernatural, travel, religious, spiritual, philosophical, humor, romance, historical romance, young adult, erotica, LGBT, and young adult. My novels are; SEVEN FISH TREE, THE YELLOW BUS BOYS, TRANSMUTATION: THE LIFE OF A TWISTED COP, RED (available in English and French), THE YELLOW BUS BOYS GO BLUE: CANADA BOUND. I coauthored a novel with Texas author, D.A. Grady entitled AROUND THE CAMPFIRE: TWO BADGE TOTERS' TALES. I have three novellas and a short story in a paranormal and historical romance series, CRAMPED QUARTERS, consisting of MARY'S TRUNK, MARY'S JOURNEY BEGINS, MARY'S JOURNEY CONTINUES, and PAUL'S STORY. I've published a horror and thriller novelette, THE DEAD AND THE DYING that also appears in the horror anthology, DARK TALES FROM GENTS' PENS, edited and published by Annie Acorn. J, another published short story also appears in the anthology, SHORT & FUN STORIES published by Dorothy May Mercer of MercerPublications.com. I've published three books of poetry and superb photography (courtesy of my brother-in-law, J. Robert Sosby of Atlanta). They are; WITHOUT FROM WITHIN: POEMS BY RON SHAW (available in English and French), TRAVERSES: POEMS BY RON SHAW and SOUTHERN BREWED POETRY. I collaborated on an additional, fourth book of poetry with Texas poet, Richard M. Knittle, Jr. entitled POETRY EAST TO WEST with internal photography provided by Richard Knittle, Jr. and J. Robert Sosby. I've also published three novelettes; THE REBOOTED (almost a novella in size), THANKS GIVING, and CHRISTMAS PAST: AN ANGEL'S STORY. These three novelettes plus the short story, J are available in a box set entitled, NOVELETTES AND SHORT STORIES BY RON SHAW. As a heartfelt "thank you" and a tribute to my brother-in-law, J. Robert Sosby for allowing me to utilize hundreds of his marvelous photographs for a few of my book covers and inside my poetry books, I published a book of his photography, PHOTOGRAPHY BY J. ROBERT SOSBY. I've been honored and privileged to be granted the express permission for the usage of several images taken by the Hubble Telescope by NASA, ESA, HEIC and The Hubble Heritage Team (STSci/AURA). You can find me hanging out and tweeting way too often at @RonGizmo on Twitter, pinning at Pinterest (Ron Shaw), knocking about LinkedIn (Ron Shaw), tumblr Books (Ron Shaw), G+ (Ron Shaw), and please, "Follow" me on Facebook at Author Ron Shaw or Ronnie Shaw. You're most welcome and invited to drop in and comment at my website ronshawmedia.com where I post and blog regularly. Like me, my blogs are a tad twisted or at least not normal. My website contains an eclectic mix of interesting, often humorous, sometimes sad, and potentially wacky posts... blogs or otherwise. I have contributed articles and blogs to various publications and websites such as Southern Magazine, BeeZeeBooks, Inspired Writers, Books Daily, Awesomegang, BookBub, The Bee, and more. I've been interviewed by Fairy Tale Access for cable television and been a guest on a number of incredible podcasts like The Last Knock with filmmaker and author William D. Prystauk at crashpalaceproductions.com, two guest shots with Cleo of the Netherlands at Talk2Cleo.com @Talk2Cleo, Adam Ginsberg's Out of My Head Radio at outofmyheadradio.com, two appearances on the internet show Authors-First with Tony Kay and Scott Zelasko at ArtistFirst.com Radio Network at http://artistfirst.com/bookshows.htm, The Art of the Artist with host, author, poet, musical performer Justice Clarke at http://artistfirst.com/justiceclarke.htm, and Texas poet, Richard M. Knittle, Jr., Poetry Because It Matters at ArtistFirst.com Radio Network. You can catch my live Internet radio show every third Monday night from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time as I host The Ron Shaw Show on ArtistFirst.con Radio Network at artistfirst.com/ronshaw.htm. I interview exceptional guests from around the world such as musicians, authors, entertainers, publishers, actors, celebrities, filmmakers, comedians, and storytellers. All of my past shows are archived at my personal website ronshawmedia.com, at my radio show website artistfirst.com/ronshaw.htm, and at my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TheRonShawShow/.
