Goodreads asked Shawn McGuire:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Shawn McGuire The most recent is BREAK MY BONES, the second book in The Wish Makers series. Once Desiree, the hippie genie let me know there was a lot more to this series than the first book, STICKS AND STONES, it all started falling together.

The main character in BMB, Crissy, came to life for me one night while I was watching one of my son's Taekwondo classes. They were learning how to escape if you were pinned on your back and your attacker was sitting on top of you. It was like Crissy was sitting behind me because out of nowhere I hears, "That's what happened to me." The story poured out of me after that!
