“Nothing in this world is strange if it makes you—or someone you love—feel good.”
“The combination of power, passion and ancient magic could belong to only one. Farishta. The idea that she had returned, after so much time, nearly overwhelmed him. He stumbled and reached out to a tree for support.
“Then everything went black.”
These are the last lines of the first chapter of Genie for Hire: A Biff Andromeda Mystery.
Biff, a centuries-old genie, can’t use his powers for himself, so he opens a detective agency in a Miami suburb in order to keep the air conditioning going and halvah (a sesame-seed treat) on the table.
At this point in the book, he’s just learned that the female genie he loved and lost just might be coming back into his life.
When I began writing the book, I thought of Farishta as a character who’d be in and out of the book, sticking around just long enough to cause Biff some trouble. I was writing a mystery, after all, not a love story. But love has a funny way of sneaking up on you, doesn’t it?
Once Farishta appeared on stage, in a puff of smoke, I knew that just like Biff I couldn’t let her go.
