Magecraft and Murder

Available as a serial on Kindle Vella.

When seventeen-year-old Maggie arrives in the quaint town of Liverdale, she expects nothing but country walks and gossipy tea parties. She’s not prepared for a guest to drop dead at her first dinner party. She’s further taken by surprise by a magical strain of influenza that targets sensitive mages like her. Now she struggles to protect herself as two very different young men pull her deeper into the heart of an investigation into the strange deaths. She’d better be careful: if she doesn’t figure out who is murdering mages, she might be the next victim.

Set in the 1920s, this novella reads a little like Agatha Christie meets Diana Wynne Jones.

Spooky and the Gargoyle

Category winner in the 2020 Indie Reader Discovery Awards!

“A charming tale of camaraderie and friendship.” — Kirkus Reviews

Full of strange shadows, the old Maxwell place can be frightening to a timid little kitten like Spooky! As she explores her new home, Spooky finds an unexpected companion in the gruff gargoyle who guards the gates . . . but can she turn this curmudgeon into a new friend?

Children ages 4-8 will love watching Spooky overcome her fears as she settles into a new life. This atmospheric friendship tale makes a delightfully creepy story for Halloween, but is sweet enough to read year-round.
