Mindy Klasky is the author of fifteen novels in a range of genres from light paranormal romance to category romance to traditional fantasy.
Everyday women who meet extraordinary challenges — that’s the story behind Mindy’s light paranormal books. From vampires to witches to genies, who knows what will go bump in the night? These novels are set in very real cities — Washington, New York, and Minneapolis — but the women who live there discover very unreal things!

The Jane Madison Series is the story of a librarian who finds out that she’s a witch. Girl’s Guide to Witchcraft (Red Dress Ink – ISBN 978-0373896073) begins the series, introducing Jane to her magical abilities – as well as to her warder, her familiar, and the love of her life. The story continues in Sorcery and the Single Girl (Red Dress Ink – ISBN 978-0373895632), when Jane is invited to join her exclusive local Coven. Jane’s story concludes in Magic and the Modern Girl (Red Dress Ink – ISBN 978-0373895779), when she discovers the consequences of letting her powers lie fallow for just a little too long.
The As You Wish Series shows what can go wrong when a magic lamp, a wish-granting genie, and backstage life in the theater all collide. (Each volume of the As You Wish Series is a stand-alone novel; there is absolutely no need to read the previous books to enjoy the story!) How Not to Make a Wish (Mira – ISBN 978-0778327370; formerly titled There’s the Rub) introduces Kira Franklin, a stage manager caught in a dead-end dinner theater job when her true wish is to work on a production of Romeo and Juliet. When Good Wishes Go Bad (Mira – ISBN 978-0778328216) shifts to dramaturg/producer Becca Morris who gets the lamp – and the opportunity to truly make a difference with a brilliant new play. To Wish or Not To Wish (Mira – ISBN 978-0778328308) brings the lamp to Erin Hollister, an actress who struggles to land the musical theater role of her dreams.
Strange new worlds, where our rules do not apply… Magical creatures… Mysterious gods… Mindy’s fantasy novels are set in far-away lands during times long ago, when men, women, and children set forth on adventures, never knowing who they might meet or how they might change.
