The Curses and Cauldrons collection, released in September, highlights many of my favorite authors and some new ones I have begun to explore. I was able to connect with a couple of my favorite authors and ask a few questions about writing.

Hedgewitch Katie Lightfoot’s wedding to Declan McCarthy is fast approaching, but unless the renovations on her Savannah home manage to overcome an increasing number of delays and snafus, it is very possible that her reception guests will be using the on-site porta potties. It’s why Katie is so looking forward to a visit from her father Skylar Lightfoot, who is not only a practicing Shaman but has a surfeit of home construction experience. As it turns out, his shamanic skills are needed first when local philanthropist Kensington Bosworth is murdered.

Penn & Teller have a guy who’s really tall and another who remains silent. Newcomer Shin Lim has an unruly mop of hair and stylish clothes. Tiger guys, big guy/quiet guy, hair guy – you know who I mean, right?

Despite being a practicing Wiccan, attorney Keli Milanni isn’t really feeling the Halloween spirit. Literally not feeling it, as despite her client Grace Hammerlin’s fearful declarations that her new home is haunted, Keli doesn’t believe in ghosts.
