Last night Shannon sat down for an in-depth discussion of her best selling book: All Is Not Lost for Chevalier’s Books with none other than her husband, Nestor Carbonell! During the hour long interview they discussed the sacrifices she made when she came to the United States at 18 to study acting. Also the feelings she went through as she coped with giving up her dream of acting in exchange for taking care of her family full time. The most moving part of the interview however was when Shannon read the beginning of the book & Nestor said it made him want to cry. In conjunction with the interview she also did a book signing, you can purchase a signed copy below – Nestor posted on his Official Instagram that he will sign the books as well if fans are interested.
Please Note: Chevaliers Books only ships within the US.

In case you missed it on Jan 17th, the full panel is now up on You Tube. During it Nestor promotes Shannon’s new book, reveals he still has Batmanuel’s ears/codpiece & blames the dog for getting muted plus so much more!
On January 16th Nestor announced via his social media that his wife, Shannon is releasing her book: All Is Not Lost:
How I Friended Failure on the Island and Found a Way Home. In the past 2 weeks, he & Shannon both have begun promoting the book’s upcoming release through social media as well as her website which can be viewed below. The official synopsis for the book from the site is as follows:
“All Is Not LOST is the story of what happened when one woman set aside a lifelong dream in favor of her kids, only to find herself battling her own ego and unfulfilled ambition. Shannon Kenny Carbonell—wife of actor Nestor Carbonell of LOST, Bates Motel, and The Morning Show fame—knew she was making the better choice for her, no matter how painful, when she decided on full-time motherhood over career. Little did Shannon know she would soon find herself desperate to feed the part of her that was suddenly starved of creativity and accomplishment.
When she found out her family would be relocating to Oahu, Hawaii, while Nestor shot LOST, Shannon helped uproot their lives with as much true love and support as she could muster, thinking, “I’ll just have to be lost in the midst of LOST.” But not long after the move, a torturous family fight revealed the burden of her loss was also weighing upon those closest to her. Just like the LOST survivors, she had crashed on an island that would test her, heal her, and surround her with the people who would eventually show her the way home.
With a no-holds-barred honesty that is raw, sometimes heartbreaking, and often hysterical, former working actress Shannon Kenny Carbonell tells her tale of attempting to reconcile her growing feelings of failure and sudden loss of her identity. This is her journey.”
The book has already received praise for its honest look at giving up your dreams for your family & life in the entertainment industry. With a release date of March 16th, you can pre-order the book through Shannon’s site below through links to Amazon, Books-A-Million & more.
