Making a place for yourself in a world where you don’t belong takes courage. So does moving in with a warlock.
Drawn into the schemes of an angry wizard, Carin glimpses the place she once called home. It lies upon a shore that seems unreachable. To learn where she belongs and how to get there, the teenage misfit must decipher the words of an alien book, follow the clues in a bewitched poem, conjure a dragon from a pool of magic — and tread carefully around a tortured, emotionally scarred sorcerer who can’t seem to decide whether to love her or kill her. This is Book 1 of a series. The story continues in Waterspell Book 2: The Wysard, Book 3: The Wisewoman, and Book 4: The Witch.

"This book made me FEEL - and strongly! I also loved that this story was so completely unpredictable. It's one that I'd find hard to forget ... it is one of those rare stories that will stick with me." Ali's Books
"If you like epic fantasy that sweeps you to amazing, immersive worlds and while following intriguing characters, be sure to add this series to your to-read list." Once Upon a YA Book
"It's nearly impossible to put down. From the first page, it pulls you into a rich, well-drawn and intriguing world populated by equally intriguing characters. It's also impossible to read just this one. You might as well get all three in the series and, like me, you will then be hoping for a book 4." Amazon Verified Review
"I was hooked instantly when I started reading The Warlock. I willingly gave up sleep and honestly could not wait to get up to read more of this book. I'm reading the whole series, and I absolutely am loving it." Sarah @ Amazon
"Intriguing premise and original characters [whose] well-crafted relationship balances in a tense power struggle … Fine fantasy." Kirkus
Castles in the cornfield provided the setting for Deborah J. Lightfoot’s earliest flights of fancy. On her father’s farm in Texas, she grew up reading tales of adventure and reenacting them behind ramparts of sun-drenched grain. She left the farm to earn a degree in journalism summa cum laude, and later, as a professional member of the Authors Guild, to write award-winning books of history and biography. High on her bucket list was the desire to try her hand at the genre she most admired. The result is Waterspell, a multi-layered fantasy series about a girl and the wizard who suspects her of being so dangerous to his world, he believes he’ll have to kill her … which troubles him, since he’s fallen in love with her.
