New Release: Wayfair Witches Book Sixteen

Spring has most definitely sprung hereabouts, which means it’s time for the release of the sixteenth book in the Wayfair Witches series. Although this is the last book in this particular story-line/series, more is coming from Wanda and the gang. Check out my Coming Soon page for details.

For now, here’s the blurb and the store links for Unhappening Ever After.

Unhappening Ever After

In a new world, Wanda Wayfair is solving an old mystery …

When a rat called Dudley O’Mara tells Wanda that someone has murdered his witch, Wanda is hit with a strong sense of déjà vu. Déjà vu isn’t unusual for Wanda – she’s experienced it throughout her life, and finally, she is about to discover the reason.

Soon after Dudley’s visit, a second murder occurs, and it is just as eerily familiar as the first – a janitor is killed, and a dangerous magical object is missing from the scene. History seems to be repeating itself, in a most disturbing way. Can Wanda remember the lessons of her past in time to solve the mysteries of her present? And what exactly did she and the Queen do in order to bring Max home?

Out Now: The Infernal Artefacts Book Three

Well, I said that the third book of Ned’s trilogy would be coming soon, and I meant it. Dancing with the Dead is available to download now. And as always, it’s free to read via Kindle Unlimited.

Dancing with the Dead

Halloween has arrived, and so has an invitation – Ned’s been invited to the Dance of the Dead.

Ned is certain it’s a trap. She wants to find another way to win this fight. But when people she cares about are kidnapped, it looks like she’ll have to take the bait.

In a mansion filled with ghosts and Servants, Ned must confront the mysteries of her past, and learn who she can trust in her present. The most important thing she’ll learn, though, is who the Spellcaster really is.

When the truth is revealed, will Ned be able to fight the Spellcaster, and escape the Unhallowed Hall alive?

Out Now: A Grave Situation

Hi all,

The second book in the Infernal Artefacts Trilogy is out today. I really hope you enjoy it – it was a lot of fun learning about zombie lore for this one. The final book of the trilogy will be coming very, very soon.

Book Two: A Grave Situation

It’s getting closer to Halloween, and bodies are disappearing from the cemetery known as the Unhallowed Ground.

Once again, Ned is thrown together with Shane Moore as she works to help the Wayfarers track down the grave robbers.  The Wayfarers think there’s a simple explanation for what’s happening, but Ned has other ideas.

The Spellcaster may have been caught, but the gruesome work carries on.  Is the right person in jail, or have Ned and the Wayfarers been tricked?  If only Angelica would talk to Ned, this mystery might be easier to solve – but in Witchfield prison, Angelica is experiencing some problems of her own.

Now that she has returned her memories of Shane, Ned has some decisions to make.  The past they shared seems too important to put behind them – but does Shane feel the same?

Double Release Day

Hi All,

If you’re just about to enjoy a few days off for the holidays, then here are a couple of new books of mine to sit down and read.   The first is number fifteen in the Wayfair Witches series, and the second is Dead Like Ned, the first book in my new Infernal Artefacts Trilogy.

In Wanda Wayfair’s tale, she’s experiencing some testing times, trying to pass her examinations, all while solving the murder of one of the examiners.  This is the second last in Wanda’s series, with the finale coming next spring.

In Dead Like Ned, Ned Marvin inherits a set of artefacts from her long-dead father, turning her world upside down. One of the artefacts, a dagger, is missing, and it may just be a murder weapon. Luckily for Ned, she’s got her snarky cat, Cleo, to help her solve the mystery.  Book Two is on pre-order, and Book Three will be soon to follow.

Both books are in Kindle Unlimited, and are 99c from now until Christmas Eve.  Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Reading!

Book Release: Wayfair Witches Book Fourteen

Not gonna lie, I may have shed a tear or two when writing certain parts of this installment of the series. But rest assured, although there are one or two sad moments in this book, there has always been  a happy ending planned for the series, and for all of its characters (except the bad guys, obviously – their idea of a happy ending wouldn’t be much fun for anyone else, would it?).

The blurb and store links are below.

Faking It

When a bat arrives, telling Wanda that he is her familiar, and she is his witch, things get confusing …

Wanda already has a familiar, and he looks exactly like this bat, sounds exactly like this bat, and only eats mangoes – exactly like this bat. Is this new arrival a Doppel-Dizzy, or a sign of something sinister in the air?

As well as finding out why Dizzy now has a double, Wanda must deal with a strangely-behaving Max, and a murdered janitor. The janitor was killed in Wentforth’s College for Wizards, and an important magical object has been stolen from the college, too.

As the body count increases, Wanda and the gang work hard to solve the case. But when they get to the bottom of this mystery, they may not like the answers …

New Release: Wayfair Witches Book Thirteen

Now that Wanda’s been out of prison for a while, it’s time for her to have another adventure. As usual, this one is free in Kindle Unlimited. I hope you enjoy it.

All Tricked Out

When a white rabbit asks for Wanda’s help, she’s hoping for an easy case. It’s just a missing magician, after all. But things in the Magic Hat aren’t all that they seem.

Soon, Wanda is not only trying to track down the rabbit’s lost magician, but she’s also trying to solve a murder.

The Magic Hat is a club on an unusual street, a street with no name. This unnamed street isn’t in a magical enclave, and yet it feels incredibly special. Are the residents human, or are they supernatural? And can the answer to that question help Wanda and her team solve the case?

Book Release: Riddler’s Edge Book Ten

Merry the Day After Christmas!

There’s a new release from Riddler’s Edge, and this one is holiday themed.  Hopefully everyone is having a wonderful time, and enjoying some rest, food and reading. I have a stack of new books to get through myself, not to mention the ones on my Kindle, so I’m very glad to have a little bit of time off.  As always, this one is in Kindle Unlimited, and I hope you all enjoy the read.

Totally Married

Jingle Bells, magic spells, marriage lies ahead …

This holiday season, Aisling Smith has everything she ever wanted. She knows what age she is this birthday, she has her parents to celebrate the Winter Solstice and Christmas with and – oh yeah – she’s marrying the love of her life.

But this is Riddler’s Edge, and if Aisling’s learned anything since moving here, it’s that no celebration is ever complete without a murder …

Or two …

The murder victims are integral to Aisling’s wedding – like her DJ, for starters. Is someone trying to stop the wedding, or are they trying to send a message? Either way, Aisling and Dylan need to find out, and soon. Otherwise, the wedding might not happen at all.

Book Release: Wayfair Witches Book Twelve

Wanda’s back for another adventure, but this time she’s not having much fun. She’s doing time in Witchfield Prison. But hey, it’s Wanda. Things’ll be all right in the end.

Doing Time

When Wanda kills Baldrick Berry, there’s only one place for her to go: Witchfield Prison.

Being an inmate isn’t much fun – not when Wanda’s the one who arrested a lot of of the prisoners in the first place. And not when two prisoners have died in mysterious ways. Even Witchfield itself has some secrets to be solved.

But when an angry little dog comes to haunt her, Wanda begins to realise that Baldrick’s death wasn’t quite as simple as it seemed.

Wanda must navigate prison life, deal with an angry ghost, and find out the truth. At the same time, she’s discovering new and frightening aspects to her power, and trying to understand her confusing feelings for Will …

A Little Bit Spacey: A New Release from Riddler’s Edge

It’s all getting  a bit spacey in Riddler’s Edge right now. I hope you have fun with this one.  Here’s the blurb and store links.

Riddler’s Edge Book Nine

Abducted cows?  Crop circles?  Surely Aisling Smith lives in a town filled with magic, and not science fiction.  So why does it seem like the aliens are coming?

At a town festival, a popular cow disappears.  The following day, it’s a man who’s vanished.  As more and more animals go missing, and crop circles appear around town, Aisling learns that the same thing has happened in Riddler’s Edge once before.  Have the missing men and animals been abducted by aliens, or is the culprit closer to home?

New Release: Slippery Slope (A Riddler’s Edge Side Story)

Hi Everyone,

Firstly, I want to tell you all that there’s a story from the Riddler’s Edge world out today, featuring Pru as the narrator.  She and Greg take a trip to the enclave of Snowy Hollow, where it’s always winter. And, because my characters are just darned unlucky, they wind up in a spot of trouble while they’re there.  The blurb and the store links are at the bottom.

If you’ve been following my website or my newsletter, you’ll know that I was unsure of whether to keep releasing while all of this was going on. But so many people wrote to me to tell me that reading is keeping them sane right now, so as long as people want to read my books, I’ll keep writing them (honestly, I’m not sure I could stop if I tried!). Here’s a little idea of what I’m planning for the coming months:

There’ll be another release from the main series this summer, with Ash as the narrator once more – I’m working on it right  now, and having a blast. I’d always intended for the Riddler’s Edge series to be seven books – everything was wrapped up and the characters got their happy endings.  But so many new ideas kept cropping up that I just had to get back to the series.  There will be a little bit more from Katy Kramer, too,  albeit a little later this year – Hamish still has to find a way to become a man again, after all.  I can’t leave that guy hanging! And there’s another Wayfair Witches adventure plotted as well – I’m really looking forward to writing that one.

In other news, we’re still on lockdown here in Ireland, although they have reopened garden centres and hardware stores, which is a relief, because gardening and DIY keep my husband busy 🙂  It’s taken me a while to get used to things – I’m a creature of routine – but I’ve finally settled in to this version of normality.  There’s been lots of reading and writing, and we’ve been baking so much that I’m going to be a couple of stone heavier when this is all over.

I know there are places in the world far worse affected than Ireland, and my hopes and prayers are with you all. Stay safe everyone, and thanks so much for reading.

The Blurb:

A romantic getaway turns deadly …

When Pru and Greg head to the enclave of Snowy Hollow for the Winter Wizard Festival, they’re looking forward to a weekend of snow-filled fun. But Snowy Hollow is not what they expected. The enclave is ruled by the Byrne coven, whose hobbies include: being mean to the yeti, blaming other people for their crimes, and littering the enclave with upmarket bars and terrible food.

When Pru predicts the death of a famous sportsman, Oscar Brown, things take a deadly turn.

Pru and Greg find themselves suspected of Oscar’s murder, and unable to escape the enclave. Together with some newfound friends, they set out to track down the real killer, stop the Byrnes from destroying the enclave, and find a way home.

There will be mystery, vampire magic, and a whole lot of snacking along the way …
