Suspense and fantasy author Shawn McGuire started writing after seeing the first Star Wars movie (that's Episode IV) as a kid. She couldn't wait for the next installment to come out so wrote her own. Sadly, those notebooks are long lost, but her desire to tell a tale is as strong now as it was then. She grew up in the beautiful Mississippi River town of Winona, Minnesota, called the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!) home for many years, and now lives in Colorado where she loves to read, craft, cook and bake, and spend time in the spectacular Rocky Mountains.

They have become so real to me I feel responsible to them to tell their stories. Desiree, my hippie genie, has been particularly "vocal" from the start of this series. Every time I sit down to write about her, she become more complex and has even more to say. I have to finish her story...or she'll never let me sleep!

I also think of my readers. I'm writing The Wish Makers series because I believe they can help or inspire people. I've seen that happen already and that keeps me very motivated.

And on those days when it's really tough, take a day off. The world will keep spinning!(less)

“It’s a congenital birth defect called phocomelia,” she’d told me, as though she’d said it a million times before, even though I hadn’t asked. “It’s a known side effect of the anti-nausea drug thalidomide, but was just a genetic luck of the draw in my case.”
Shawn McGuire, Kept Secrets
