They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.

#1 New York Times bestseller, March 14, 2018

A grieving widow. A house with secrets. And an invitation to a seance...

When Clara O'Hare's husband passed away, she felt her life was over. But when she moves into a new home to escape the memories, she discovers that the veil between life and death is very thin.

Desperate to find answers, she attends a seance in a remote country home surrounded by a colorful cast of strangers. But something sinister has decided to make itself known. It will be up to her and the dashing young medium, Wesley Lowenherz, to find out what the spirits of the manor are dying to tell them.

Laced with gothic romance and paranormal mystery, A Spirited Manor is book one in the O'Hare House Mystery penny dreadful series.

A Spirited Manor is a genre smorgasbord - a paranormal Victorian gothic cozy mystery with sweet romance.  And it works!...The mystery kept me on the edge of my seat, with twists and turns up until the very end. Clara manages to be a proper Victorian lady and a kickass heroine at the same time (always a plus) and the gothic atmosphere definitely gave me a chill or two. Absolutely worth a read!  -Bookish Creature

From the AuthorWhat is a "penny dreadful"?"Penny dreadfuls" were serialized books written during the Victorian era that cost only a penny.  They were usually published on cheap wood pulp paper (very much the "pulp fiction" of the day.)  They were not high literature like Charles Dickens (whose stories cost three pennies) and were looked down upon by the educated as being simply "dreadful."  Penny dreadfuls gleefully embraced the Victorian appetite for the sensational and other worldly.  Many featured stories with demons, the supernatural, ghosts, Egyptian curses, and other titillating, terrifying topics to send a joyful shiver up the gentle reader's spine.
