ORIGINALLY POSTED ON THE NING SITE ON DECEMBER 10, 2009 (I’m moving old posts from that site, which is closing down, to my WordPress blog):
I cannot BELIEVE that I haven’t posted a blog about this, but I guess that just shows how busy life has become … I became so distracted that I didn’t even post about my new book in my own blog!
Be Careful What You Witch For! is now available everywhere books are sold. Follow this link to find out more.
Meet Lola Garnett, a bored housewife, mom and office drone who wakes up with unexpected psychic abilities, and no instruction manual, and Twink, the reluctant, sarcastic fairy assigned to assist and educate her.
In this first book in a series, middle-aged Lola has resigned herself to an unsatisfying life of servitude as a wife, mother and office drone. The American Dream she’s living feels more like a coma, and she secretly longs for a more meaningful life. In a perfect demonstration of “be careful what you wish for…” she gets her wish when she wakes up from a nap one day with extrasensory abilities and powers.
The adventure really kicks into gear once she learns that her condition is the result of a botched spell coming from across the street, where her wanna-be-witch neighbor, Melinda Underwood, is foolishly playing with powers she doesn’t understand. Lola’s untrained intuition tells her that Melinda intends to use her equal, yet opposite, powers for evil against innocent people.
With the help of a tiny, sarcastic, ethereal sidekick, can Lola overcome her helpless resignation to overthrow Melinda’s evil plot and, while she’s at it, find her own self worth?
