The first book in my new paranormal cozy mystery series, WITCHY EXPO SERVICES MYSTERIES, is out today! The e-book is Kindle exclusive (and free in Kindle Unlimited), but the paperback (including Large Print) will be available widely. An audiobook is on track to release early next year!
DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS HOVER features my oldest protagonist yet (who’s closest to my actual age, ha): Nimue Toothaker, a divorced, career-driven 40-year-old witch with a 19-year-old daughter away at school.
It’s the first time in a while I’ve written in third person. It was a lot of fun to dive into a new world of witches with different rules from my Spooky Games Club series. Only witches and humans exist in this world (no vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc.), but every witch and warlock has an animal familiar. I hope you’ll enjoy Nimue’s close relationship with her own, a miniature dragon named Gowdie.

Nimue Toothaker is ecstatic that her world-famous grandmother is about to retire and has chosen her as her successor in the family business. She’s only been working on the expos for a few years, but she’s confident she has what it takes to lead her fellow witches and warlocks in the business that defines their entire village. Unfortunately, her grandmother’s sole condition for Nimue taking the job is that she share the position with her arch rival, an irritating warlock possessed of two minds—quite literally.
First up is Bookshop Con, where indie booksellers from across the nation host authors and sell books to passionate readers. Nimue’s grand plans clash with her co-manager’s persnickety demands, but their arguments cease to matter when a celebrated author drops dead in the convention center lobby. Nimue suspects murder, but she knows that if she ends the convention prematurely, the magic at work will destroy her beloved hometown. It’s a race to catch the killer before they strike again—all while trying to prove she can handle the job she’s so desperately always wanted.
