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?

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 …

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 …

New Release: Katy Kramer Book Three

Katy’s back with another mystery for you all.  The poor girl can’t even take some time to go to night school without finding a body in the library!  In this one, she also learns a little bit more about the mysterious Aunt Jude.

Hope you all enjoy it.  Book four, The Case of the Strange Society, will be coming in mid-late March. Blurb, cover and store links are below – as always, it’s free in Kindle Unlimited.

The Case of the Listening Library

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing …

When Katy Kramer discovers a body in the college library, the death appears to be an accident.  But like most things in Katy’s life, nothing is quite as it seems.

More deaths occur in Wentforth’s College for Wizards, and with one of Hamish’s former students as the chief suspect, Katy and Hamish are hired to solve the case and clear her name.

There are yet more mysteries which need urgent solving.  The Not-So-Strange Society’s influence seems to be spreading throughout the enclave, and only Katy, her friends, and the mysterious Society of Cacklers seem to be concerned.

Hopefully, a trip to Riddler’s Edge can reveal the answers which Katy so desperately seeks.

New Release: Holiday Heist

This one is a seasonal story, featuring Melissa, the Nemo Foundation, and three very big miracles. Will Berry also plays a very big part, so anyone who’s wondering how he’s doing since the events of All Hallowed Out, look no further.

 

Holiday Heist

A holiday heist, a powerful child, and a parolee Melissa can’t stand the sight of? It sounds like a recipe for a very Merry Solstice.

The Nemo Foundation’s kids are planning some Solstice shenanigans, but Melissa has no idea what their hijinks might entail. She’s far too busy figuring out why an emaciated wizard was drained by a harpy, and trying to keep a young weredog out of jail. Plus, the Queen of the Faeries has promised three miracles this holiday season – and in order for those three miracles to pass, Melissa must learn to trust someone she hates …

All Hallowed Out – A New Wayfair Witches Release

Hi Everyone,

It’s almost Halloween, so I’ve got a seasonal story from Wanda and the gang, called All Hallowed Out.

Halloween is coming to Riddler’s Cove.  And this year, it might just last forever …

Wanda and her coven are looking forward to the holidays.  Unfortunately, a dangerous spell is in the works, and in order to see it through, witches are being put to sleep or being murdered, without a clear connection between them all.

With the help of a hyperactive familiar, Wanda and the gang need to track down the novel which began it all.  But with all the copies quickly disappearing, and the book’s writer in a deep sleep, their task is a difficult one.  And if they can’t stop the spell in time, the world will never be the same again.

Will Berry, now imprisoned in Witchfield, might well be the only one who can help.  But only if they can bring themselves to trust him …

 

As always, this one is free in Kindle Unlimited.  The store links are below.  Happy Halloween everybody.

New Release: The Case of the Haunted House (A Katy Kramer Cozy Mystery)

I’m delighted to tell you that Katy is back. This time, around  she’s solving the Case of the Haunted House .  There was an unavoidable delay with this one, so it’s coming to you a few days after I expected. Hopefully it’s worth the wait.

As always, this one is available free to those with Kindle Unlimited subscriptions.  The blurb and the store links are below.

The Case of the Haunted House

Katy Kramer, Paranormal PI?

When Katy’s latest two cases involve haunted houses and badly-behaving mirrors, she’s feeling less like a witch hunter and more like a ghost hunter.  Together with Ned, Hamish and Cleo, she sets to work on solving the mysteries.

But as the bodies rack up, it’s clear that neither of these cases is simple.  The ghost of Jim McGinty insists his death was a murder, so Katy and her friends need to find the killer before they strike again.  It would all be so much easier if Jim would just tell them who killed him, but no one ever said that ghosts were sensible.

In a week filled with stubborn spirits, angry werewolves, unusual musicals and sexy vampires, Katy’s beginning to feel a little overwhelmed.  To top it all off, she must continue to hide the truth about herself.  Because if she tells her new friends she’s a witch hunter, she could lose them forever.

There’s someone who does know the truth, though – the irritating Wayfarer agent, Cullen Keats.  He might be the last person Katy wants as a partner, but this time around, he could be exactly what she needs …
