Shawn McGuire

Shawn McGuire loves creating characters and places her fans want to return to again and again. (She’s lost track of how many times readers have told her they wished they could move to Whispering Pines. Shawn does too!) She chooses topics for her mysteries she’s curious about. This not only makes research even more fun, it satisfies her desire to always be learning something. When not writing, Shawn enjoys going on long motorcycle rides with her husband and traveling. She’s very much a homebody, though, so fills her days with reading, hiking, doing yoga, baking, watching British television mysteries, and nibbling really dark chocolate. Shawn’s first job at age thirteen was cleaning her dad’s offices. Writing has been a passion since that time, but she’d never thought it could be a career until later in life. To this day, she wonders how she thought all those books got on the shelves at libraries and bookstores! Until she figured it out, she worked at a pizza parlor, department store, as a receptionist, fast food manager, fabric store manager, and payroll manager. The best job she ever held, aside from author, was stay-at-home mom to her two sons, a position she held for eighteen years. She graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, with a degree in English and Business. Her first book was published in 2014 and as of 2020 she has released sixteen novels, three novellas, and her work has appeared in two anthologies. Shawn was born in San Antonio, Texas and grew up in Winona, Minnesota, a beautiful Mississippi River town. After graduating college, she moved to the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin, where she lived for more than twenty years. Currently, she lives in Parker, Colorado with her husband, the love of her life, in their recently emptied nest.
