I haven't posted in a while but I assure you I've been busy.
I've been polishing book three of my Poppy Blue series. This one is called Tricks and Treats, and in it Poppy arrives at her shop one morning to find it trashed. Was it a burglar? A joke gone haywire? A crabby ghost? Or something else entirely?
To add insult to injury, all kinds of other things are going sideways for Poppy, including her magick shop's wares going off (Who wants a chocolate candle that smells like poop? Hopefully no one.) and other spills and spots of trouble.
Stay tuned in to find out what's behind the mayhem, and along the way Poppy's relationship with Roger is building, Poppy's mother Fiona is up to her usual trouble, and Jordan has a love interest.
I'm also working on some shorter stories about some of the other characters.
One is about the hiring of Vanessa, how she came to work for Fiona and then for Poppy. Readers will meet the witchy mother-daughter duo through the eyes of their new hire, and it will be a window into more of their magic.
Another one in the works is a flashback to nearly a decade earlier. In it, college student Poppy awakes one morning to find Fiona has let herself in. Why, you ask? Because Fiona has fought with her boyfriend Tom and moved out. Poppy and her two housemates now find they've got a fourth one who is most unwelcome with her overbearing magic and unsolicited advice. They'll have to figure out a way to get Fiona out of their house and back with Tom.
I have plenty more ideas, but Tricks and Treats as well as the hiring of Vanessa and the fourth roommate from hell stories are the ones I'm most focused on for the near future.
I assure you that more is coming. Lots, lots more.
