Secondhand Spirits Book Tour!

I’m happy to announce that Secondhand Spirits,

the first in my new Witchcraft Mystery series,

will be released July 7!

I hope you’ll be able to join me at an event near you…I’ll be visiting Southern Oregon, Northern California, Southern California, and the Phoenix/Tucson area…see below!

“An enchanting mystery that enables the audience to believe in the supernatural…a terrific urban fantasy.” –Genre Go-Round Reviews

Four Stars – Romantic Times

“SECONDHAND SPIRITS is an excellent blend of mystery, paranormal, and light humor, creating a cozy that is must-read for anyone with an interest in literature with paranormal elements…SECONDHAND SPIRITS has an air of authenticity that leaves many other similar novels in the dust.” --The Romance Reader's Connection
