My name is Desiree, and I’m a genie.
When wishes are made, I’m the one who grants them. Most turn out fine. A few don’t. That’s not my fault. I always warn them to be careful what they wish for.
Granting wish after wish while never receiving my own has worn me down. I admit it, I’m jealous. Without realizing it, I started taking my bitterness out on my charges. I sent them on wish-journeys that twisted into darkness before ending in light. Then came Mandy’s wish followed quickly by Crissy’s. That’s when my life changed, too.
Sticks and Stones
Everyone has a dark side. Mandy’s just moved in with her.
Break My Bones
Everyone makes mistakes. Crissy’s just might kill her.
Never Hurt Me
Everyone has a wish. Desiree’s just got real.
Shawn McGuire is the author of young adult novels that blend contemporary settings and issues with a touch of fantasy and magic. She started writing after seeing the first Star Wars movie (that's episode IV) as a kid. She couldn't wait for the next movie to come out so wrote her own episodes. Sadly, those notebooks are long lost, but her desire to write is as strong now as it was then.
Her books deal with harder topics (dating violence, death of a sibling, divorce, substance abuse, runaways, bullying, teen suicide, etc.) because she believes it is important to talk about these things. Those kinds of topics can be hard to handle and a bit overwhelming, so she infuses a bit of humor in her work as well because she also believes that a sense of humor can help you get through just about anything.
Shawn lives in Colorado with her family where she loves to read, cook and bake, craft, practice yoga and meditation, and spend time hiking and camping in the spectacular Rocky Mountains.
