Nerdy high school outcast, CLARISSA LAWRENCE, has always felt like she didn’t belong in this world. More than anything, she wants magic to be real—and not just because she’s obsessed with Harry Potter and tries to go to Narnia by reading fantasy novels in her wardrobe. Yet, when she stumbles upon real magic, and fairy tales come true, she doesn’t expect to be the evil villain in her own story.
Clarissa learns she’s descended from an evil witch and is destined to kill her older sister. When she meets a cute boy who offers to train her in magic, she must make a choice. She can have a safe, normal life and no harm will come to anyone. Or she can choose magic and risk everything and everyone she loves in order to be what she’s always known she was meant to be . . . a wicked witch.
The Geari Wife
Steampunk. Mystery. Romance. Revenge.
Orphaned on a world similar to pre-shogunate Japan, Faith longs for her old life and the civilization that has left her behind. When the man who is responsible for kidnapping her sister returns to the planet where she has been abandoned, she hatches a plan that will restore peace to the indigenous people, get her memories back from the man who stole them, and avenge the death of her family.
It would all be so simple if she didn’t find herself falling in love with the man she has vowed to destroy.
Most accomplished ladies excel in art, music, and dance. Not that such skills helped Faith Earnshaw survive exploding spaceships, planetside skirmishes and a lack of nineteenth century plumbing.
Just when everything falls into place and Faith realizes who her fiancée truly is and what his intentions are with her, she thinks she might have a chance to live happily-ever-after with her Prince Charming. Or that’s what she thinks before their ship is attacked and they are boarded by French pirates.
Faith and her friend, Sumiko, must quickly learn the subtle arts of subterfuge and stealing memories so they can outwit their captors and find out Lord Klark’s plans. If they fail, it will mean death to them and those they hold dear.

When she falls in love with a woman from the stars, she must decide if she’s willing to risk dishonoring herself, her family and her people’s traditions to save not only her love, but all of her people, from the merciless destruction of her world by the

Witches Gone Wicked PREVIEW: a book in Womby's School for Wayward Witches
You think you know the world of magical boarding schools? Not from a teacher’s perspective at a school for at risk youth.
Like any twenty-two-year-old who grew up obsessed with fantasy novels, Clarissa Lawrence expects all her Harry Potter fantasies to come true when she is invited to teach at a school for witches.
As if being the new “arts and crafts” teacher isn’t hard enough at a school for juvenile delinquent witches, budget cuts are just as severe in the magic community, administrators are as unrealistic in their expectations of teachers, and the job is a hazard if the students find out you can’t actually do magic.
As if this isn’t enough pressure, she has to figure out why teachers are mysteriously disappearing. If she doesn’t, she might be next.
The Witch of Nightmares, Book 1: The Problem With Hedge Witches Series
Magic doesn’t grow on trees—except for hedge witches with an affinity for plant magic.
Fairy tales are very real in fourteen-year-old Abigail MacQuillan’s world. Bad things happen to children who are lost in the enchanted forest—Fae snatch them up to eat them, witches tempt them into eating their gingerbread cottages to enslave them, and carnivorous plants lure them into their jaws.
Which is why Abigail most certainly isn’t “lost.” She is on a mission. She must find her missing parents and older brother in the forest before harm befalls them—all while protecting her younger brother as she does so.
Only if Abigail can prove she is as resourceful as her enemies and come to terms with her own magical gifts in time, will she be able to protect her family from danger.
