★★★★★ "There is a darkness that whispers through the narrative, a sense of the tragic that is both unsettling and attractive...gripping and pulsating." ~Reader's Favorite on Sister Witch

Sister Witch

Book 1 in the Legends of the Family Dyer series
Genre: Historical Fantasy, Paranormal & Urban Fantasy
4.4 stars, 111 ratings on Goodreads
Ebook: $2.99 (Free via Kindle Unlimited)  

Moll Dyer prays she can leave her troubles behind when she immigrates to the new world, but a paranormal threat grows, and soon follows her across the ocean to Maryland.

Colonial life in the Old Line state was tough on both man and woman. Hunger, disease, Indian attacks, and drought tested the resolve of the settlers daily. But troubles for the Dyers included the threat of a succubus on a mission! Will the demonic call initiated by her family prove too much to resist as she labors to rebuild her life in a distant land?

The legend of Moll Dyer originated in earliest colonial Maryland. Despite 300 years of civilization, and scientific reason, Moll's name is still often heard there, especially around campfires late at night, or as a warning to misbehaving little people. Her spirit is often seen as a wisp of unnatural fog in the swampy woodlands near her homestead, with her half wolf companion at her side. This is her story.
