Witches Prefer Wands

Moving back to her hometown, she leaves all that is urban and rediscovers what it means to be alive with a long-forgotten magic and a drizzle of hot, gooey murder mystery.

Iris is done living a life where everyone else calls the shots. Giving her slimy-dog of a husband the axe, she packs up her potion shop and moves back home to the sleepy fairytale town of Slipper Creek. There princesses aren’t the only ones enchanted.

Back aches and acid reflux are the least of her midlife witchy worries. She’s stacked against a sentient long john bent on turning the town’s culinary tastes to the gourmet and a gun-turned cat who gives the new meaning to the term hair-trigger. When a murder is added to the cauldron and her drama queen sister is the number one suspect, things really start to bubble over.

A rule (or ten) isn’t about to stop this 43-year-old from uncovering a scandal so delectable it gives devil’s food cake a run for its money. But it’s bubbles, bubbles, toil, and trouble, when Iris’ fritzing magic takes a turn nobody dreamed possible. (Can you say midlife magic dragon invasion?!)

Juggling her newfound powers while wading through enough clues to make Miss Marple shake her head, the game takes a deadly turn. Now, it’s a race against time to stop the killer before her own death isn’t one by chocolate.

Witches Prefer Wands is a Women’s Fiction 2022 novel that will Bibbidi Bobbidi Boom its way into your heart with laugh-out-loud action & adventure, a cozy family of unforgettable characters, and a mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end.
