One of the important themes in Mind Magic, my debut novel, is finding your place in the world. So many times, we’re caught up in daily life and don’t take time to “smell the roses”. But it’s more than that. It’s that little thing I like to think of as Magic.
In my life, I find my Magic in so many different areas. Family, friends, reading a good book, and these days, writing in particular helps me find that magical place that we should all be seeking.
Simon, one of the main characters in Mind Magic, thinks he has it all together. As an apprentice mage, he’s isolated from the world. His training is intensive and filled with rules. But when his Mind Magic alerts him to werewolf cubs in danger, he throws aside the rules and rescues them.
It’s funny how sometimes breaking the rules is exactly what you need to do. Simon finds a home among the pack, something he never knew he was missing. I’ve found a home in the writing world, a creative outlet I didn’t know I needed.
When you take a look around, you’ll find something that you can do to make some magic of your own. So, tell me, where do you find your magic?
Magical species must never mix. According to the rules, Simon Osborne should ignore the children’s cries for help. After all, they’re werewolf cubs, and he’s an apprentice mage. But for once in his life, Simon breaks the rules and rescues the cubs, saving them from a demon intent on draining them of their magic.
Of course, all actions have consequences, and Simon’s bold move earns him the displeasure of his peers and the attention of the cubs’ alpha, a man named Gray Townsend.
The last thing Gray needs is a mage in his life, but Simon did save his son. Since Simon is now a friend of the pack, Gray doesn’t have much choice about it—or the forbidden attraction that goes along with it. Unfortunately for the alpha, he needs Simon’s help to track down the demon behind the kidnappings—before it strikes again. Simon and Gray must join forces to protect the pack, even as they struggle to resist the temptation that threatens to destroy them both.

A sassy southern lady, Poppy Dennison developed an obsession with things that go bump in the night in her early years after a barn door flew off its hinges and nearly squashed her. Convinced it was a ghost trying to get her attention, she started looking for other strange and mysterious happenings around her. Not satisfied with what she found, Poppy has traveled to Greece, Malaysia and England to find inspiration for the burly bears and silver foxes that melt her butter. Her love of paranormal continues to flourish nearly thirty years later, and she writes steamy love stories about the very things that used to keep her up all night. If her childhood ghost is lucky, maybe one day she’ll give him his own happily ever after.
