Author Lisa Shore found inspiration for new book from a bedtime story

If I can help readers believe they have tremendous power over their lives by trusting their gut instincts and going for the best life they can live, then I believe the universe will deliver it to them.

One rainy night many years ago, Lisa Shore was tucking her daughters in while preparing to tell a bedtime story. The wind thrashed outside the window and the rain pitter-pattered on the roof over their heads. She then began to tell a story about magical fairies who only came out when it rained and danced on the roofs of the humans who lived at the edge of the forest. Their names were Pitter and Patter and they granted wishes if a human saw them.

After her daughters fell asleep that night, Shore wrote down the idea and ultimately turned it into her new book, “Gifts of the Crysnix”.

“My book is about making the right choices and wishes in order for you to live your best life,” Shore said. “It’s about believing in yourself, finding strength in humility, the importance of gratitude and the power of forgiveness.”

The book can appeal to anyone, but Shore believes her primary target market is girls at the brink of becoming women. After losing both parents at a young age and raising three children as a single parent, she wanted to show—through the telling of a fairytale—that we can all make the most out of whatever situation we are in.

“If I can help readers believe they have tremendous power over their lives by trusting their gut instincts and going for the best life they can live, then I believe the universe will deliver it to them,” Shore said. “The idea of positive intention crosses all barriers of religion, race and age groups.”
