Series: The Witch Avenue #1

Synopsis:  It’s two weeks before Triss turns 18, and her world is about to change into the most magical one imaginable as she readies herself to enter The Witch Avenue Order… that is until her mother’s disappearance. Instead of celebrating her transformation, she finds herself spreading rose petals into her mother’s empty grave.

When Logan, her best friend from junior high, moves back to town for college, he vows to help her find the answers she so desperately seeks surrounding her mother’s disappearance. As they begin uncovering clues, it becomes apparent that the life of white magic they both grew up loving is not what the majority practices, and their lives are in danger.

 With a haunting feeling that her mother may still be alive, she begins to hear a call to the wilderness. Triss realizes that in order to find the answers she needs, she must learn the ways of her ancestors and become the hunter, not the hunted before it’s too late, and she becomes part of the lonely souls.

Series: The Witch Avenue #3

Synopsis: Triss and Logan’s love is becoming stronger by the day as they harness the powers between them, but will that make them blind to the evil they’re facing?

 After uncovering startling information about her family, Triss is determined to right the wrongs of her ancestors. Triss and Logan uncover who has infiltrated the covens across the globe, and they realize the plans of the dark side are far more sinister than they’d ever imagined.

As the power of this hidden world is exposed, Triss learns her role in the covens. With Logan, Dace and Bakula’s assistance, Triss is now able to fully realize the abilities her ancestors have given her.

It won’t be long until the dark forces regain their strength, especially as their leader, Eben, continues his quest for a power that can never be revoked. Triss must stop him before it is too late.


Excerpt from Released Souls, book three of the Witch Avenue series:

“You’ve really messed up our plans.” Lara squinted at me from across the room. I looked around to see Logan, but he was nowhere in sight. Rope that had been tied around my wrist was digging into my skin. I was in the office of a warehouse with rusty beams overhead and loose wire dangling. There was a window in the wall that divided this space from the rest of the warehouse. All I could see through the glass were boxes and crates stacked on top of one another. There looked to be barrels of chemicals out there too.

Lara began pacing, staring at the floor. She was dressed in a different outfit than I had seen her in previously. How long had I been out?

My tongue traced over a lump on my upper lip. I didn’t remember being hit, but I didn’t remember much of anything since the fogger was released at the house.

“What plans are those?” I asked, tipping my head up to meet her stare. The light from above caused me to squint.

“Don’t be cute. You may think disbanding the followers back east destroyed us, but it did nothing of the sort. We’ve got chapters all over the world, Triss, and they’re coming for you. If I don’t end you first.”

I shrugged my shoulders and my head fell back down.

“Why don’t you?” I asked.

“I might,” she paused briefly and looked at me. “I’m sure you’re wondering where Logan is. I don’t know if he told you, but we don’t enjoy letting our investments wander away. He’s our property.”

“Your property?” I growled, jerking my head back up.

Would they consider my mother their property?

“Well, he came willingly. We promised him that we’d let you go if he came without a ruckus.”

“I don’t believe you. He wouldn’t have agreed to that.”

“People do strange things for love. Look at your mother.”

The stinging began in my heart, but I wasn’t going to fall for it. Logan wouldn’t do anything like that. We were on the same page.

Lara began walking toward me and my pulse quickened. I wasn’t sure I wanted to see what she wanted to show me. She leaned over and loosened the rope from the wooden crate and pulled me to my feet and then immediately tightened the rope around my wrists as she led me to the window.

“Look out there. Do you see him?” she asked. I followed her finger that pointed to the far corner.

A gasp almost escaped, but I held it back. Logan was completely unconscious and tied to a chair. His head hung to the left, and the one eyelid that I could see looked swollen.

“Doesn’t look like he came willingly to me.”

“We had to persuade him a little, of course,” she replied.

“So you’re the head of the Venators?” I asked, attempting to buy time.

Lara’s lip curled up slightly. “What do you know about them?”
