The Library, the Witch, and the Warder

The Library, the Witch, and the Warder

Once upon a time (as the story goes), I had an idea for a novel. I sketched out the concept, and I sent an email to my agent with a two paragraph summary that began, “Jane Madison has a problem. Or two. Or three.” I ended up writing Girl’s Guide to Witchcraft. While I was writing Jane’s book, I thought it was a fantasy novel.

Merry Christmas Bundle!

A funny thing happened on the way to our winter holidays… First, I had a writing retreat that consumed a week of my time.
