Welcome to the Witching Season

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

Well, this October has been very active for me--I'm busier than I expected to be, for several reasons, and to that end, so my first piece of news is that I'm taking a social media break to focus on writing and on a couple of classes I'm taking. (Which is a good thing! Learning new things is always fun!).

I'm committing to a 30-day social media break (except for a couple of my professional industry groups), so am planning to be off Twitter and FB for a month. I may still post kitty pictures to my IG, but otherwise,

I'll be available on my blog and nowhere else. My assistant Jennifer will still be running the FB group, though, and she can bring important questions to me. And, as always, she'll be answering my email for me.

So I have new releases to tell you about, and new preorders, and a free download for you (limited time only)! 

Witching Bones Cover



Ember’s about to face the showdown of her life…

Things are coming to a head with the Tuathan Brotherhood, and Ember finds herself right on the front lines. The goddess Brighid calls in her favor, sending Ember on a journey through the world of Annwn. Her quest? 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.

Preorders: Wild Hunt, Whisper Hollow, & Bewitching Bedlam

BEDLAM CALLING: A Bewitching Bedlam Anthology

RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 20, 2019 (Print is available now)


A Bewitching Bedlam Anthology contains the (previously published) shorts:

THE WISH FACTOR: (Bubba's Origin Story): When the baby cjinn, Younger Son, attempts to find his name, he ends up in a world he did not expect, filled with dangers he never dreamed of.  (Bubba's origin story). Takes place when Maddy was young.

BLOOD MUSIC:  Prequel-novelette to the Bewitching Bedlam Series. When fun-loving witch Maddy Gallowglass moves to Bedlam to restore an old mansion and turn it into a magical bed-and-breakfast, the last thing she expects is to meet her match in the gorgeous vampire Aegis, a former servant of Apollo.


When Maddy and Aegis go on vacation, a blast from the past threatens to destroy them both.

Maddy and Aegis need to relax after opening the Bewitching Bedlam B&B, so they go on a post-New Year’s trip up to a mountain chalet. But what neither realizes, is that a dark cloud from the past is shadowing them both, and a resulting avalanche holds them hostage, at the mercy of a menace from Maddy’s past, who is ready to destroy Mad Mauldin and all she holds dear.


When Sandy needs help rescuing her ward, she never dreams that she’ll end up with a tiger by the tail.

Sandy Clauson is Mad Maudlin’s best friend. When Sandy’s ward Jenna goes missing on Paulson’s Peak, Sandy must face the wrath of a major storm to find her. When weretiger Max Davenport—new to Bedlam—offers to help, Sandy finds that, not only does he guide her through the ice and snow, but he comes dangerously close to melting the walls that guard her heart.

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.


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

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.

Shadow Silence Cover



KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO  (Print to come on release date)

My best friend Peggin finds herself under a curse after she is almost taken by the Lady of the Lake. As Bryan-my guardian and mate-and I work to break the hex, we stumble over a dark and violent mystery from the past. One the Hounds of Cú Chulainn will do anything to stop us from bringing to light.

The Phantom Queen Cover



KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO (Print to come on release date)

Veronica, Queen of the UnLiving, is causing trouble. When I request an audience with her, she tells me something big is coming, something that even the Hounds of Cú Chulainn fear. Now, Bryan and I must enlist the help of the dead in order to keep the spirit world from unwinding and to keep the Hounds from using the approaching disaster for their own ends.

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?
