Time Witch 4 is Here!

 

It’s Belinda’s turn to take centre stage, as we catch up with her almost a year after Essie’s tale ended. Belinda has some decisions to make, and a murder to solve.

The blurb and store links are below. Happy reading everyone, and I hope you’re having a great 2024 so far 🙂

So You Think You Can Turn Back Time?

Belinda’s been having a bad year. Vince, her fiancé, has moved miles away and she doesn’t know if he’s ever coming back. The weather in her beloved hometown is misbehaving. And Sebastian McGinty is always around.

When she sees a local vampire die before her eyes, she knows things are about to get worse – because unless Vince comes back to solve the case, Sebastian will be in charge.

Things take a turn for the worse when a beloved coven member is accused of the murder. Vince finally returns to do his job, but Belinda’s not sure he’s doing it properly. Vince has grown to hate Granvar Bay, and she’s afraid he can’t see things clearly anymore. Perhaps it’s up to Belinda and her pals – and even Sebastian McGinty – to put the real killer away. As she works more closely with Sebastian, she learns that he’s not nearly as annoying as she’d once believed.

With the stakes growing higher, Belinda is given an incredible opportunity: the means to turn back time. But nothing comes without a cost, and Belinda must decide if it’s a cost she can live with.

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.

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?

New Release: Katy Kramer Book Six

We’re having a wonderfully typical Irish summer at the moment – we had a heatwave last week, but now we’re having huge downpours. I think we have it easier than most this summer, so I’m grateful for that. And I’m very glad to be able to tell you that Katy Kramer Book Six is now available to download, so I hope you enjoy. As usual, it’s free in Kindle Unlimited.

I hope wherever you are, and whatever kind of weather you’re having, that life is treating you well.

The Case of the Christmas Carol

It’s summertime in Samhain Street, but Katy is feeling ever so Christmassy.  As she investigates the murder of a Santa-suited man, Katy believes she knows who the killer is, but it’s going to be difficult to prove.

She’s also having a hard time convincing Hamish that his salvation is in sight. But all of the signs are there, she’s sure of it. Any day now, she and her friends are going to find a Pillar of Permanence. Once they do, they can return Hamish to his human body, and he’ll no longer have to live as a dog.

Along the way, Katy and the gang encounter more mysteries: a set of musical objects, playing a Christmas carol which provokes an unusual reaction in some, and a mansion that very few can see. Have they finally found the house where it’s always Christmas, and will it have a Pillar of Permanence inside?

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.

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?

A New Release from Riddler’s Edge

The eighth book of the series is out today, and while we’re having a very soggy summer in most parts of Ireland, in Riddler’s Edge things are much, much worse …

A Little Bit Chilly

It’s summertime in Riddler’s Edge, so how come it feels so chilly?

While the town prepares for a performance of The Snow Queen: The Musical, some very frosty murders occur. Have the victims been frozen by an over-enthusiastic air conditioner, or is there magic involved?

Aisling will need her friends to help her crack this case, so it’s a little unfortunate that Dylan is avoiding them all. He also has a secret visitor at the lighthouse, and Aisling is itching to get to the bottom of that little mystery, just as soon as she stops the entire town from freezing to death …

As always, it’s free in Kindle Unlimited.  Here are the Amazon store links:

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 …
