At her mother’s urgent deathbed plea, Abby Teller enrolls at the Berkeley College of Magical Arts and Crafts to learn Real Magic. To support herself through school, she signs on as the superintendent of the Garden of Abracadabra, a mysterious, magical apartment building on campus.
She discovers that her tenants are witches, shapeshifters, vampires, and wizards and that each apartment is a fairyland or hell.

On her first day in Berkeley, she stumbles upon a supernatural multiple murder scene. One of the victims is a man she picked up hitchhiking the day before.

Compelled into a dangerous murder investigation, Abby is torn between her past and her future. Torn between her ex-fiance, Daniel Stern, the enigmatic FBI agent, Jack Kovac, and the seductive Prince Lastor who lives in the penthouse apartment and may be a suspect.

She will discover the first secrets of an ancient and ongoing war between Humanity and Demonic Realms, uncover mysteries of her own troubled past, and learn that the lessons of Real Magic may spell the difference between her own life or death.

BREAKING NEWS! IN PRINT THIS JULY, 2017!

The Garden of Abracadabra is on BarnesandNoble, US Kindle, Canada Kindle, UK Kindle, Australia Kindle, Apple, Kobo, and Smashwords.

The Garden of Abracadabra is also on Amazon.com in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, India, and Netherlands.

“So refreshing. . . .This is Stephanie Plum in the world of Harry Potter.”

Goodreads: “I loved the writing style and am hungry for more!”

Fun and Enjoyable Urban Fantasy
“This is a very entertaining novel—sort of a down-to-earth Harry Potter with a modern adult woman in the lead. Even as Abby has to deal with mundane concerns like college and running the apartment complex she works at, she is surrounded by supernatural elements and mysteries that she is more than capable of taking on. Although this book is just the first in a series, it ties up the first "episode" while still leaving some story threads for upcoming books. I'm looking forward to finding out more.”

Author Ryan Schneider interviewed me about The Garden of Abracadabra.

Forthcoming in 2018! The Labyrinth of Illusions, Volume 2 of the Abracadabra Series.
