Shearstone has worked in children’s books with Mercer Mayer, in comics on “Batman: Gotham County Line” with Scott Hampton, and on “Princess: Tales of Girls who Rock” with Jeremy Whitley. She collaborated with Mur Lafferty on “Beyond the Storm: Shadows of the Big Easy,” and has self-published a handful of comic book projects.

Among her self-publishing adventures are two issues of her epic-sized fully painted comic book “BloodDreams,” available at ComiXology.com. She currently resides in New England, and is a member of the Broad Universe organization.
