Happy Thanksgiving!

Pumpkinscape: Pumpkins on a picnic table covered with a Halloween-ish tablecloth.

There's a card I send out to my close women friends every autumn and in it, the sentiment talks about "This burnt orange season." That phrase captured me, because it encapsulates the nature of autumn for me. The pumpkins and leaves turning color, and the shifting light in the late afternoon--it truly is a 'burnt orange' season. It speaks of all things ghostly and mystical to me. And so, in this burnt orange season, I send to you my best fall wishes, for a lovely harvest, for a wonderful Thanksgiving.

In this newsletter, you'll find new releases, preorders, and a wonderful freebie gift for the season! I'm also including my recipe for gluten/dairy free pumpkin pie for those of you who have allergies. So sit back, grab a cup of tea or coffee or whatever your pleasure, and let's get right to it!

To find an ancient weapon that can turn the tide in the war against Nuanda and the Tuathan Brotherhood.

But as Ember journeys to the Well of Tears, she must face not only the demons that inhabit the mystical forest, but her demons that haunt her blood heritage. Can she recover Brighid’s Flame and put an end to the Tuathan Brotherhood? If she succeeds, Ember must face an enemy unlike any other she’s ever battled. But, if she fails, the Brotherhood will permanently destroy the delicate balance of power between the Fae Courts and the rest of the world.

KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO (print to come as book is released--no preorder on print)

With the Tuathan Brotherhood taken care of, Ember and the Wild Hunt gear up for the coming darkness that threatens to plunge their lives into chaos. But first, they take on the ancient liche who stole Talia's powers. Lazarus is living near Winter Hall Magical Academy, located near Mt. Rainier. Over the centuries, he's grown so strong that it seems futile to take him on. But with Lazarus stalking the students, stealing not only their magical powers but their lives, the Wild Hunt can't allow him to roam free. Before they can confront him, Talia takes it on herself to reconnoiter the situation and ends up trapped in a maniacal web that could easily spell her death. Now, Ember and Herne must race against time before Lazarus finds her first.

THE WHISPER HOLLOW SERIES

Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living, and the lake never gives up her dead...

For those who don't know--because the series died pretty quickly with Berkley--I wrote two books in a dark contemporary fantasy series called "The Whisper Hollow Series." And then they decided to axe it. 

I finally got the rights back and so Whisper Hollow will be returning in January! I will be doing a strong tightening on the first two books. The plots will remain mostly the same, but the books need more editing to match my writing style now, so I will be tightening them up. All print copies will be with the new covers, as well.

AND...I will be putting out more books in the series!

If you haven't read the series, I encourage you to give it a try. This is a darker series--full of ghosts and spirits. It's not quite Urban Fantasy, definitely has romance in it, but it's what I call "Dark contemporary fantasy." It's not as dark as the Indigo Court Series, but darker than Otherworld and a little darker than the Wild Hunt.

Autumn Thorns Cover

AUTUMN THORNS

RELEASE DATE: JANUARY 13, 2020

KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO (print to come as book is released--no preorder on print)

Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living, and the lake never gives up her dead...

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I'm Kerris Fellwater and when I returned, I not only inherited my grandmother's house, but her gift. Like her, I must take on the job of spirit shaman. It's my gift-and my curse-to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people-and secrets-don't always stay buried.

A trunk hidden in the attic throws my life into chaos. My mother vanished when I was little and I was told she ran away. But now it looks like she was murdered. With the help of Bryan-my mysterious and brooding neighbor-we begin to unravel the mystery of her disappearance, and in doing so, we unearth a dark force seeking to bury Whisper Hollow. Now, I must work with the dead, rather than against them, because our enemy will do whatever she can to destroy the town, and she means to start with me.

KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO | (print to come as book is released--no preorder on print)

Wedding bells are in the air...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and Bedlam is swamped in both snow and manic joy. Maddy and Sandy are planning a double wedding on New Year’s Eve, and they have the winter solstice ritual to plan as well. It seems like the entire town is wired on espresso, and the sheriff is up to her ears in drunken brawls and spells gone wrong.

But a very grumpy Krampus shows up, putting his own brand of humbug on the season. And then, a long lost love from Maddy's past shows up. Can Maddy and Aegis muddle through all the chaos to the altar? Or will Maddy's heart return to her first love, leaving Aegis stranded at the altar?

Gluten-Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie

This pie uses a pre-made pie crust. Now I vary from the suggested recipe because vinegar and my body do not agree. But it came out very tasty and good, and the molasses gives it a deep, rich flavor. You can use maple syrup in place of molasses, but cut it to about 2/3 cup because it's so sweet.

Crust (you can make as specified or follow my version):
1 package Glutino Pie Crust Mix
3/4 cup + 2 tbsp coconut oil, softened but not liquid
2 eggs
1/4 cup cold water

Using your hands (I find it works best), crumble coconut oil into pie crust mix. Add eggs, work those in. One tbsp at a time, add water, working in, until mixture holds together well. Form into a ball. Cut in half, then wrap each half in plastic cling wrap and chill for several hours (you can freeze this if you package properly, too).

Before mixing filling:

One crust per pie plate, use fingers to spread evenly on bottom and sides of plate, forming as smooth and even of a crust as you can. This is not a pie crust that is easy to roll, so much better to just use your fingers.

Filling:
2 cans pumpkin puree, 15-16 ounces each1 can coconut milk (unsweetened)
1 cup molasses, unsulphered and gluten free
1 cup coconut (or alternative milk) milk. I used canned coconut milk because it's thicker
2/3 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon (we use more but then we like it)
1/4 tsp cloves (optional)

Whip all ingredients together well. Pour into pie crusts. Place on baking sheets and carefully place into preheated oven (350 degrees). Bake for 75 minutes. Carefully remove, chill before cutting.

Makes 2 pies, 9″ each.
