A magical heritage. A threat in the forest. An explosion of powers.
Charley Cooper is tired of being the lone non-magical person in a family of witches. At the ripe-old age of sixteen, she believes the witchy gene has skipped her. But when something dark in the forest threatens her best friend and her little sister, Charley's powers appear out of nowhere.
Now Charley's best friend is angry about the secrecy. Her crush is dating someone else. And, her out of control powers threaten to expose her family's secret.
When a dangerous enemy tries to silence them forever, Charley knows she must fight back. But can she learn to control her magic before they're all taking a nap in the local graveyard?

Grandma Ruby is a hoot to write! I'm always amazed at the things that come out of her mouth. I usually don't see it coming until it's already on the page.
While not as quirky as Grandma Ruby, my own grandmother used to get herself into the funniest situations. I miss her every day, but I have such fun and wonderful memories of her.
A WITCHY SURPRISE
I'm still surprised it took so long for me to notice Grandma Ruby’s attire. When I did my eyes nearly popped right out of my head. She wore her signature ruby red, of course. Only today, the color spanned a pair of shorts. Short shorts. I mean, really reeaallly short. A black halter-top adorned with red ladybugs and black combat boots finished off the outfit. Blue veins ran down the length of her pasty white legs.
