In his first season as head coach of the All Nations team, former slave George Grunion contends with racist crowds, low team morale, and... the ghost of the previous head coach.

If George doesn’t score this final run, he loses everything.

Two minutes after the shocking end to A Wild Epidemic of Magic, this
third book in the series finds Kelley and Jeroan stranded in Dubuque,

past two months—to the vengeful Druid.

together to find a way to regain all of their magic, before time—and
magic—runs out for good.

Contagious magic: there just might not be a cure...

Tommy Roling has a great freelance job, a healthy daughter, and a new city to call home. Plus he’s finally comfortable with the fact that he’s a werewolf. So why isn't he happy?
Could it be his daughter’s "terrible twos," which seem even more terrible because she chooses to stay in her wolf body most of the time? Or is it his growing distance from his family and Nina, his on-again, off-again girlfriend?
Those questions remain unanswered as a group of strangers disrupts the lives of Tommy, his daughter, and his slacker brother. These strangers give Tommy and his small pack a harsh glimpse of the whispering madness that hovers just outside the safe boundaries of their fragile little world.
A world that Tommy just might not be able to hold together on his own.
Hunter’s Moon is the second book in the Family Pack series of "rural fantasy" novels, picking up a year after the first book, Family, Pack.
Kelley Strickland and her twin brother Jeroan accidentally step into an ancient battle between a power-hungry Sorcerer-who wants to rid the world of what he calls "renegade" magic-users-and a good Sorcerer who can barely remember his own name.
Kelley soon learns that her new-found way of using magic just might save her adopted city, her brother, and her new, magically infected friends.
Or it could doom them all.
A fantasy novel for all ages about ancient power, growing up, and finding your place within those two very different realms.
