Queen of Heka 


"When you possess the one true, secret name of a god, they say you can do anything, even bring a man back from the dead. Twice." - Iset wer-Heka
 

A young princess yearns for an ordinary life and struggles to embrace her extraordinary destiny to change the course of civilization.
 

A woman, longing to see the face of the man she loves every day of her life, remaps the boundaries between heaven and earth to resurrect her murdered lover.

 

A mother to a savior god faces the wrath of rival gods to save her son and brings peace and prosperity to a corrupt and dying land.
 

Lover, mother, healer, magician,  patriot, queen, and goddess, Iset recalls an epic and harrowing tale of wits, magic, divine compromises, and a love powerful enough to conquer death.

While working in a  tomb in the Valley of the Kings, Dessie opens a portal to the past, meets the prince who claims she is his long lost wife, and unearths clues about a deadly plot that reaches from the past into modern day Luxor.

In an ancient land seething with modern religious and political turmoil, Dessie discovers love and magic can part the reeds of time, but only a sacrifice of the greatest magnitude can reunite her with her long lost love.

Something Wiccan This Way Comes

Wheel of the Year Book 1

By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.

Shakespeare

In a post-pandemic world where fortunes are made and destroyed, Maren Lilienthal, rebellious heiress and Tarot-reading witch, loses her inheritance. She returns to her wealthy family and hometown where old secrets, ghosts, lovers, and enemies never seem to die. Maren thinks the safest place for her might be the broom closet, but Cyrus Harper, a sexy tech billionaire, charms her into coming out. Not everyone falls under the spell of the town’s newest couple or wishes them well. When Cyrus and Maren are charged with  what appears to be a ritual murder on Imbolc,  the Wheel of Fortune card and reading might hold the answer to what really happened. Will white magick, Tarot, and technology  save them or make things worse?

Season of the Witch
Wheel of the Year Book 2
Tis now the very witching time of night when churchyards yawn
and hell itself breathes out contagion to this world.
 Shakespeare

Ostara: A time for new beginnings and rebirth.  An Hawaiian vacation provides an antidote from accusations of murder . On the way to his Chicago home, Cyrus makes a perplexing proposal , daring Maren to move forward in their relationship. But, the course of true love never runs smooth, or so Shakespeare said.

A stalker named Alexander Filippidis seems to know too much about Maren, and he  gets closer to her  with each passing day.  Nosey Park, reporter  for the online tabloid Tattleverse and the paparazzi compete to ruin Cyrus 's reputation. If that’s not enough, a home -grown, anti-technology, anti-capitalist terrorist group has the pair in their sites. Poison bouquets, bomb threats, snipers, nothing's off the table. The group’s not-so-subtle message: Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. 

When Maren turns to her Tarot cards, The Magician (reversed) comes up time after time. Is it a clue about the mysterious Alexander, whose tech skills might rival Cyrus's? Is he feeding information to Nosey and the terrorists? If so, how can they get him out of their lives?

The May Babies Ball

Wheel of the Year Book 3

Quote

Returning to the safety of Riverton after the tumultous events in Chicago, Maren moves into a house she once called a fairy castle.  Cyrus's renovations and the gardens they're creating together promise a fairy tale happy-ever-after.  With Beltane and  the turning of the wheel of the year,  they're  eager to celebrate the union of The Green Man and the May Queen and the  return of the fertility to the land with Maren's mentor and coven.  Then, there's the local May Babies Ball, where Maren's  high school friends celebrate the birthdays of people born in May at a river camp. This year, Cyrus will be one of the honored May Babies, signalling his acceptance into the larger Riverton community. A true fairy tale seems in the offing until the body of Maren's best friend is discovered in the river in the early hours of the morning.Was it too much to drink, or is something sinister afoot.

My Brother's Keeper

Wheel of the Year Book 4

​Flesh and blood, You, brother mine, that entertain'd ambition, expell'd remorse and nature. . .
I do forgive thee. Unnatural though thou art.

Shakespeare

Darius Pharre, Cyrus's arms-dealing brother, his wife, and baby daughter interrupt a meeting of millionaires and billionaires, sponsored by Cyrus's mentor, in Luling, Texas. With the Russian Mafia on his trail, Darius seeks refuge at Cyrus's ranch. Maren consults the Tarot, and the reading hints at darkness surrounding the Pharre family. On Mid-Summer's Eve, after a solitary Litha ritual, she spies the Bendith y Mamau capering and singing in the river ferns.  These faeries, known ironically as The Mother's Blessings, are malicious and destructive in their dealings with mortals, and the cwn annwn (hounds of the underworld) follow them into the Texas Hill Country. The snow-white dogs with their red ears and eyes like silver mirrors are an omen of death. How are they tied to Litha when the  battle between light and dark takes place, and the Oak King and the Holly King battle for control.
