The story of Cali, the teenage witch-in-training has a holiday bonus story. Time for a fun holiday tale – releasing soon!
It’s here, it’s here! Check it out. Book Two of the Witch-in-Training series, If Witches Were Horses, is available now.
It’s out in the world now. The Thirteenth Gate is a Christmas story about a runaway. It’s a magical tale.
Clarissa, a teen raised in foster care, runs away in the middle of a Christmas snow storm and learns valuable lessons from a mysterious old man who may hold the secret to her future.
The e-book is available today and the print book should be out by the end of the week. So excited to have this one out in the world. Cali is a sassy teenage witch who has so much personality, she was a joy to work with on this story. I hope readers like her as much as I do.
One chaotic week in October, former friends, a guardian angel, and a secret prophecy cause turmoil in the life of a teen-age witch-in-training.
Cali French, a high school senior, is cut out of her inner circle when she refuses to participate in a spell her friends want to cast. Cali fears the dark magic and the unknown consequences of the shortcut they want to take by casting the spell.
Unbeknownst to her, Cali is the subject of an important prophecy. Her former pals have discovered this and have an even more sinister motive in forcing her to cooperate in their work than Cali can imagine.
Her very life in peril, the young witch-in-training faces unknown dangers relying only on her unpolished skills and some assistance from a guardian angel and a gentle giant.
I’ve now written a young adult novel and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’ve already edited it and sent it out to a couple of agents. It’s a story about magic and is a bit of an adventure. I like a lot of stuff going on in the books I read and so I tend to load up the ones I write, too.
This story is kind of a mashup of Mean Girls and The Craft with a side dose of a teen crush.
I’m hoping that others whom I’ve shared this one with like it. It was a departure for me to go back to the first person writing I did when I started and it was also a new age group for the protagonists so I hope that the young adult voice is acceptable. One other writer I know who does children’s stories told me she thought I had a great YA voice. Let’s hope she’s right.
The inspiration for this story was something that happened to me a bit over a year ago and this was my way of working out in my head that the events that occurred weren’t all on me. LOL
