A Russian witch steps through her magic mirror. The heir of a voodoo queen makes more conventional travel plans. But why are they headed for Texas?
Once upon a time (a year ago, if you’re a stickler for details), chaotic magic leaking from Alamo excavations triggered an improbable event, drawing the attention of two unlikely rivals in search of a rare prize.
The Russian witch Baba Yaga and her two sisters have been around since–she can’t even remember when. She normally stays at home in her chicken-legged hut, grumpily aiding those who come to her for help or . . . not helping them.
M. C. Laveau, the CEO of Laveau Pharmaceuticals, merchandizes products that exploit the magic of her grandmother Marie (yes, that Marie).
Unfortunate bystander Rachel Vargas is caught between the dueling rivals as the bizarre effects of the magic become increasingly drastic: something’s gotta give.
Book 1 of the Baba Yaga Chronicles, in which Baba Yaga and her sisters clash with
modernity, leading to unforeseen, alarming, and comical results.
“Humorous and lighthearted with a plot that is fun from beginning to end and characters that are charming . . . the perfect read that you’ll want to sit down with.” –Readers’ Favorite (five stars)

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always loved folklore and fairy tales and wanted to explore how the traditional Russian witch Baba Yaga would fare in the face of the modern world, where technology competes with magic. As always I see things from a humorous point of view. Having lived for many years in Texas, I was also curious about how magic might manifest itself there.
