Tardy Bells and Witches' Spells PREVIEW: Womby's School for Wayward Witches
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.

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.

Adult Content Warning: This book is full of hexy magic!
Clarissa Lawrence wakes up at Prince Elric’s Fae estate after being in a coma for months. She is drained of magic and has gaps in her memories, yet no one will disclose what happened. It’s hard enough being a witch without magic, but Felix Thatch is behaving more mysteriously than usual. Her husband has made some kind of bargain with the Fae prince, and neither will tell her the truth about what the price her recovery has cost them. And worse, what it will cost her.
A mysterious force is keeping both men weak and drained. Clarissa must discover the cause of both men’s magical malady’s—and her own—before the Raven Queen strikes when they are all at their weakest.
The Joy of Hex: Book 17 of Womby's School for Wayward Witches
Adult Content Warning: Get cozy with this hexy mystery.
Clarissa Lawrence now remembers everything the Raven Queen has stolen everything from her, starting with her fairy godmother, her student, and her child. The icing on the cake is that Clarissa’s powers as a witch have been robbed from her, rendering her powerless.
Despite her lack of magic, Clarissa is determined to get those she loves back, even if it means joining the dark side. In order to bring justice to the land, she will have to fulfill her contract with a Fae, seek answers from Alouette Loraline’s diary of experiments, steal the Ruby of Divine Wisdom, and accept assistance from the wickedest witch in all the land—even if it kills her and everyone around her.
Witches Gone Wicked PREVIEW: Book 1 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.
Hex Appeal: Book 15
A Handful of Hexes: Book 4 in Womby's School for Wayward Witches--A Cozy Witch Mystery
As much as Clarissa Lawrence wants to share the joys of watercolors with her students, she knows it’s going to take more than literacy strategies and art therapy to help students survive against soul-sucking Fae after graduation. She’s going to need to learn magic ASAP if she’s going to help her students, survive her tutelage under an evil magical mentor, and figure out who’s trying to kill her this quarter.
When Clarissa finds her mother’s diary outlining her experiments with the Fae Fertility Paradox, she is desperate to uncover the mysteries of her mother’s past that will help with her own magic problems of the present. She suspects this book will solve the feud between Fae and Witchkin.
Either that or it will cause an all-out war.
Spell It Out For Me: Womby's School for Wayward Witches Book 9
Clarissa Lawrence knew there would be a price to pay for accepting the assistance of a Fae’s magic, though she never thought it would cost her heart. . . .
Clarissa has fallen in love with Prince Elric of the Silver Court, who is kind and selfless, fulfills her Tolkien fantasies of Legolas, and would do anything to protect her from the Raven Queen. Plus, unlike Felix Thatch, her magical mentor, Elric is emotionally available.
If she trusts Elric, she might be able to regain her magic and become a powerful witch once again. If he is like other Fae and learns what her magic is, he might force her to bear his heirs—or worse yet—enslave her and force her to build an army of powerful warriors to suppress her own people.
