Author Casi McLean's powerful memoir, Wingless Butterfly, Confessions of a Recovering Jerk-Magnet, unveils a true story of hope and inspiration. In her compelling manuscript, Casi discovers an elusive secret past––and changes her future. Her mother’s ominous warning about her mysterious birth father haunts her: “He’s the kind of man who pulls wings off of butterflies.” Eerie dreams of a faceless man combine with repeated failed relationships to propel her through a portal in time on the roller coaster ride of her life. When she stumbles upon sinister secrets, Casi confronts dark shadows lurking in her soul that hold her captive in psychological bondage. As the mystery of her mother’s metaphor unravels, she realizes that to save her future, she must find the power to destroy the wall of fear, betrayal and deception that looms large and foreboding over her life. Casi's fresh approach and expressive style will engage any individual who has lost sight of their dreams, and her saga promises to touch hearts for years to come.

Originally from McLean, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C., Casi relocated to Atlanta after graduating from the University of Georgia. She has always been fascinated with the written word and taught English, creative writing, and drama for several years. The life-altering search for her biological father revealed secrets and lies in her past that rekindled her passion for writing and inspired her captivating memoir. Now, the mother of two grown sons, she lives in Atlanta where she is a motivational speaker and writer focused on educating and empowering others to let go of the past, find their own passion, and pursue their dreams.
