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, 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 grew up in Winona, and our fair city is the inspiration for the setting of her novels. These novels are great for the teen readers on your gift list. Please make time in your busy holiday schedule to come and hear Shawn read and discuss her novels...autographed copies make great gifts!
Her novels "Sticks and Stones" and "Break my Bones" are on display and available for sale.
