Welcome to the Hidden Coven

Tucked away in the rugged hills of Pennsylvania is a unique village; a mix of medieval and modern, dark and light, guided by a mad seer and hidden from the mundane world by dangerous magic. As ley-lines swell, and magic spills back into the world, keeping this coven a secret becomes a race against dark forces who would take the power of the witches for their own. 

4 novellas now available! Book 5 finale coming soon!

Inborn Magic: Book 1

Odd coincidences force Bobbi Cole to learn to control her strange powers. Her first attempt at spell-casting leaves her paralyzed, and only the High Priestess of the Hidden Coven can help. Quinn Mason, head of security for the coven, doesn’t want Bobbi around. He doesn’t trust strangers. Not when a demonic force is looking for a way inside the coven’s defenses to steal their most valuable resource: magic. Bobbi will have to battle Quinn’s mistrust and her own insecurities to get a firm grip on her magic, and do it before the witches face their ultimate enemy.

Soothed by Magic: Book 2

When Bobbi attracts a new admirer, Quinn breaks all the rules to keep them apart. It’s not that he’s jealous. Okay, he’s burning with jealousy, but William Fain is not what he seems. And with the demon Koro’s agent loose in Ashlet, Quinn isn’t taking any chances with Bobbi’s safety or the fate of the Hidden Coven.

As Bobbi falls under the stranger’s sway, Quinn must convince coven leaders that Fain poses a real threat and not just to Quinn’s love life. Get to know the Hidden Coven family from an all new perspective as four powerful witches and two civilians come together to stop the blood rite that will cost Bobbi her life and unleash a demon on the world.

Trigger Magic: Book 3

Five months after her demon father tries to use her body to break into the world, Bobbi finds a new enemy stalking her. Reluctantly, she seeks help from the witches of the Hidden Coven and Quinn Mason, the man who saved her from the dark rites that would have killed her.

While training with defensive magic, Bobbi botches a spell with dire consequences. Her mother’s grimoire may hold the key to fixing their mess, but no one has seen it since the day Bobbi’s family perished in a fire, over twenty years ago. Quinn and Bobbi visit the ruins of her childhood home where odd memories of a nursery rhyme lure them into deeper danger.

Bellwether Magic: Book 4

There’s a hole in the world and it’s Bobbi’s fault. Now she’s trying to clean up her mess. With a band of alien imps to round up, a booby-trapped grimoire to decipher and the ever-looming menace of her demon father hanging over her head, Bobbi doesn’t sleep much these days. As Quinn’s world unravels and his body weakens from illness, he holds on tight—sometimes too tight—to the precious moments they have left together. But all those problems pale in the light of the divine Lady’s call to battle. Now Bobbi must choose between her biggest threat and her greatest love.
