I’ve got a massive backlist out there, but I’m focusing mostly on my indie releases now, which a lot of my readers haven’t heard of yet. So we’re going to be putting up excerpts of the indie work I’ve done—both full length and short collections, each Wednesday, to encourage you to give my new work a try.
Today’s excerpt comes from Witches Wild.

“I saw the tree go down. Kelson and I barely managed to drive past it before it hit the ground. Is everybody all right? I was going to call you.” I felt bad that I hadn’t immediately called him to check. I got too caught up in my thoughts sometimes.
“We’re all right, but can you take in two of my guests for the night? When the oak fell, it punched a hole in the roof right into their rooms.” He sounded so forlorn that I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him.
“I don’t know. Let me ask Kelson. I think so, but I’ll call you right back.”
“Ask me what?” Kelson was putting away the bread. “You want some soup and toast?”
“Yeah, that sounds good. Ralph just called. When the tree fell, it punched a hole in his roof and he wants to know if we can take in a couple of his guests who were affected by it.”
“Let me check. We were supposed to have two couples show up this afternoon.” She put down the loaf of bread she was holding and hustled off to the office. Within a few minutes she returned. “We have the room. Because of the storm, both couples who were due to check in today left a message that they would have to reschedule. The ferry’s grounded due to high winds, so they’re going to check into a hotel in Bellingham instead. I assume you’ll issue refunds to them, given the weather was unexpected?”
I nodded. “Yeah, totally not their fault. Okay, then I’ll tell Ralph we have rooms for his guests. Though I hope they behave, given they signed up for the Heart’s Desire. That place is a sleazy dive disguised as an inn.” I hit callback on my phone and within seconds he answered. “Ralph? We can take your guests. But how are they going to get up here? I assume the oak is still blocking the road.”
