Where did the title for I WISH come from?
This is a genie book. The word “WISH” just
had to be in the title. Since the story has a major subplot about a
daughter caring for her depressed mom, the title had to be wistful, not
cute or fun. I tried several ideas. “I Wished” had too much attitude.
“Wishful Thinking” was too light-hearted. I went with “I Wish” because
it felt just right.
