Yes, I love the fall. It's my favorite time of year. It's perfect for pumpkins and witches and apple harvesting! But I am not a real fan of wearing costumes. And, even though I often write about witches, I do not like really, really scary things. I write about nice witches and magic that makes a positive difference... most of the time. I did have one of my witches blow a town away once, but you'll have to check out The Witches of New Moon Beach series to find out more about that. When I was an elementary school principal, I must confess that I often stayed home and allowed a teacher who adored the whole dressing up thing to take charge. I was always grateful to her for stepping in so I could step out. The only exception to my costume wearing phobia was when I was a middle school assistant principal. I dressed up like a witch complete with face make-up, a wig, a long black dress and a cauldron of candy. No one knew who I was. I learned a lot that day. Middle school kids like to talk when they think no adults are listening!

Bergen is one of the most beautiful cities in Norway. My husband and I have traveled there twice and loved it each time. We had hoped to return again sometime this year, but, sorry to say - the pandemic has altered our plans for a while. I took this picture the last time we visited and revelled in all of the beautiful colors housed within this historic city. There are tons of quaint shops, beautiful parks, wonderful museums, great food and don't miss out on the Inclinator ride up to exceptional walking trails filled with gnomes, fairies and other mystical creatures... really!
A magical town, it is the inspiration for my book The Witch of Bergen. I hope you enjoy meeting my young witch, Carynn Cinnamon. Travel back with her to the 1600's and learn what life was like for witches way back then.
Travel back in time with fledgling witch, Carynn Cinnamon as she takes an innocent
trip to a second hand shop only to be launched into one mystically challenging adventure after another.
Whisked back in time to Bergen, Norway in the 1600's, Carynn lands in the arms of a handsome witch who claims to be her husband. Is her witchy heritage somehow tied to this man and can she truly believe in the love he swears they share for each other?
Has Carynn discovered her own wrinkle in time or is fate playing a cruel prank on our young witch? And what of her supposed husband's claim that the lives of her fellow witches and the future of magic depend on the choices she must now make? How will she ever explain any of this to her friends and family or to the guy at home she thought she was falling for?
It's all so confusing. Carynn finds herself struggling, between two different worlds, two different men and too much magic. Repeatedly pulled from the present and dropped into the past is bad enough, but having to juggle explosively unpredictable magical powers in both worlds is just too much!
Will she have to give up her own life and love in the present to protect a husband she never knew she had and the future of witches everywhere?
