About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
And so begins the adventure. The leprechaun is called O'Shaughnessey because that's the name the little fellow's chosen for himself and because his faerie name is virtually unpronouncable by humans. Bobby flies in the leprechaun's magical tricorn hat into the deep woods to meet the crusty, antisocial O'Sullivan with his hoard of gold, to the Cave where the Ban-Shees dwell, and to the Mountain of Shadows, where is kept the dreaded Coach-a-Bower, the Deathcoach. Author Jeremy McGuire weaves the invisible realms seamlessly with Bobby's real world where he experiences the divorce of his parents, and the illness of his little sister, each world influencing and being influenced by the other.
Is O'Shaughnessey real or an imaginary friend?
Deftly constructed at 140 pages, O'Shaughnessey: A Boy and His Leprechaun is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Children's Literature - General category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, O'Shaughnessey meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $14.95.

About the Author
Primarily a playwright (From All Things Evil/Sister), this is Jeremy McGuire’s first work of narrative fiction. He has also been an actor, director and teacher, but his first and most enduring loves are writing and drawing. He has a particular fondness for Nineteenth Century literature and art, which influences the narrative style and the pen and ink drawings in O'Shaughnessey.
He lives in an 1883 Victorian house on the south side of Chicago with his wife, Kathleen, who is also an artist, and two cats, who are not.
