About Shannon and her book 'Through The Glass'
When Shannon Moroney married in October of 2005, she had no idea that her happy life as a newlywed was about to come crashing down around her. One month after her wedding, a police officer arrived at her door to tell her that her husband, Jason, had been arrested and charged in the brutal assault and kidnapping of two women. In the aftermath of these crimes, Shannon dealt with a heavy burden of grief, the stress and publicity of a major criminal investigation, and the painful stigma of guilt-by-association, all while attempting to understand what had made Jason turn to such violence.
In this intimate and gripping journey into prisons, courtrooms and the human heart, Shannon reveals the far-reaching impact of Jason's crimes, the agonizing choices faced by the loved ones of offenders and the implicit dangers of a correctional system and a society that prioritizes punishment over rehabilitation, and victimhood over recovery.
Today, Shannon is the founder and clinical director of Heal for Real Therapy & Consulting as well as a trauma-therapist, a sought-after keynote speaker, a restorative justice advocate, an expert witness, and the author of two more books. Her work and writing have been featured by media outlets worldwide, including the CBC, BBC, CTV, Dr. Phil, The Globe & Mail, and The National Post. The New York Times called her a "Woman in the World Recommended Writer" and has been recognized by the International Forgiveness Project and the World Empathy Library. She lives in Toronto with her twin tweenagers and she believes that fighting for justice is best done wearing a fabulous pair of earrings.
