Calling All Armchair Sleuths! Announcing the Spooky Games Club Mysteries Series

It’s Cover Reveal Day for Three Cozy Paranormal Mystery Books!

I’m excited to announce I’ve started writing in a new genre! I hope my YA readers will give my new books a chance. If you’ve loved my speculative fiction books until now, I think you’ll still find my new books full of twists and turns, sweet romance, and plenty of magic.

You won’t have to wait long to give them a try. Book 1 in the Spooky Games Club Mystery series will be available September  29th! They’re on a rapid release schedule, with Book 2 available October 27th and Book 3 available November 24th. You can pre-order them both as well!

Dahlia Poplar is a genuine witch, an unofficial gofer, and Luna Lane’s only cursed resident.

With a werewolf best friend, a vampire ex-boyfriend, and a ghost for a hanger-on, Dahlia is far from the most unusual dweller of her sleepy small town, but she’s the only one unable to leave. Dahlia has to perform at least one good deed per day—or she’s one step closer to turning to stone.

Fortunately, the residents of Luna Lane have plenty of tasks for Dahlia to complete to avert the curse until Cable Woodward, fetching professor and nephew of her elderly neighbor, stops by for the semester on sabbatical. Attempting to help Cable’s uncle work through the trauma of losing his wife, Dahlia uncovers the man’s collection of board games, which leads to him reminiscing about the long-forgotten Luna Lane Games Club.

Dahlia reestablishes Games Club, only to find evidence of a number of horrible demises connected to the original group. While trying to uncover the truth about the deaths, Dahlia has to fight off her curse, protect her elderly neighbor from becoming the next victim, and most vexing of all, keep Cable from figuring out Luna Lane’s supernatural secrets. Only with eerie board games like these, there may not be a loser—or even a winner—who survives.

Broomsticks and Board Games (A Spooky Games Club Mystery #1): September 29th, 2020
Enchantments and Escape Rooms (A Spooky Games Club Mystery #2): October 27th, 2020
Potions and Playing Cards (A Spooky Games Club Mystery #1): November 24th, 2020

VINES & FLORETS Blurb and Cover Reveal!

Today’s the cover reveal for VINES & FLORETS, the fifth and final book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series that I hope to have out in early 2021!

A traumatized former faery champion. The beguiling former faery prince who manipulated her once before. A chance to correct the past mistakes that haunt her, as the battle between blood, bloom, and water fades into memory.

Autumn Sheppard could once shoot vines from her hands and command people into doing what she said—but if she shared that with anyone, no one would believe her. She’s spent the past ten years suppressing the nightmare of her actions during the battle between faeries, vampires, and mermaids, even as her older sister and step-sister moved on with their lives, content with leaving all the magic behind them.

When Orin, the conniving faery prince who once took advantage of her, asks for her help, she wants to run—but he’s the only one who still believes in her ability to make things right. Tasked with finding a fallen angel, Autumn is shocked to discover the hottest boy in school is exactly the guy she needs on her side. If only he could see past her geeky, outcast personality—and believe her head’s not in the clouds when she tells him what he truly is.

The fifth and final book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series takes the story ten years into the future, when the former champion of bloom is the only hope for the resurrection of friends and foes alike lost in the definitive battle. With the help of a fallen angel, she might succeed—even if her actions come with dire consequences that cannot be undone.

SALT & VENOM is now available! With the e-book exclusive to Amazon, the second book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series is also free on Kindle Unlimited. Paperbacks will be available widely, though there have been some production delays.

An emboldened merman. The daring girl who agreed to be his champion. The upcoming battle that threatens to change everything they believe in.

Ivy Sheppard never wanted the ability to turn into a mermaid—though her wicked ice powers are nothing to sneeze at. Now her step-sister is her enemy, the fairy she once trusted may not be the ally she hoped for, and her new boyfriend wants her to transfer schools to avoid the vampires taking over Union High. Between dodging parents’ concerns, pretending she can stand to even look at the step-sister who sided with the bloodsuckers, and still aiming to end it all without violence, Ivy is in over her head. Unfortunately, these ancient enemies are itching to get the conflict started and Ivy may have no choice but to become the warrior the merfolk need her to be.

The second book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series starts the war between fangs and fins in earnest as the merfolk plan their assault to bring down the unnatural undead vampires once and for all.

Early reviews for SALT & VENOM say:

“The impending battle seems to be shaping up to be more than anyone expects it to be and I’m anxious at finding out how it ends. Can’t wait for the next one!”

“Just when I thought Fangs & Fins couldn’t be topped, Amy McNulty proved me wrong with Salt & Venom.”

“You’re going to be hit with the ultimate twist that you definitely won’t see coming. It’s going to rock your world.”

amazon buy2

A dapper vampire. A sullen merman. Two heirs to a great conflict—and each needs to claim a beloved to become his kindred’s champion.

High school senior Ember Goodwin never had a sister, but after her mom’s remarriage, she now has two. The eldest is no stranger to her—Ivy is a witty girl in her grade who’s almost never spoken to the shy bookworm before—but she’s surprised to find the popular girl quite amiable. Their burgeoning friendship is tested, however, when Dean Horne, a pale, besuited charmer, shows interest in them both and plans to reveal his appetite for blood to the one who’ll stand by his side.

Seventeen-year-old Ivy Sheppard is tired of splitting her time between her dad’s and her mom’s, particularly when her dad uproots their lives to move them in with his new wife and step-daughter. Used to rolling with her parents’ whims, she tries to make the best of it and befriend her nerdy new step-sister. Her hectic life grows more unwieldy when she catches the eye of junior Calder Poole, whom she swears she sees swap well-toned legs for a pair of fins during a dip in a lake. Now she’s fending off suitors left and right, all while trying to get to the bottom of the strange happenings in her town.

The first book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series sets family against family and friend against friend as an epic, ancient war comes to a head in a supposedly sleepy suburb.

Coming from Snowy Wings Publishing May 1st, 2018!
