Spells & Tells Trailer
This is a short teaser about my upcoming novel "Spells & Tells." It is a dark urban fantasy about a very special young man, Sami, his dream girl, Merith, and the unique sweet shop which serves as a gateway between two worlds. Romance and danger entwine in a collision of magic and reality. All heroes want the fairytale ending, but what happens when the fairytale turns too real?


Review by: Alek on Feb. 14, 2012 :
If you like chocolates, romance, and fantasy this is the short story for you. It's creative, the voice of Sami Dawson is comical as well as personable. It sets up a word full of intrigue while standing completely on its own. The author writes with a rare beautiful fluidity and structure that seems to pull you along as if by magical influence. This is funny, cute, and romantic. Everyone loves a good tale about the underdog prevailing and after meeting Sami Dawson you can't help but root for the young man. Fantastic and hilarious characterization. This story is a keeper.

Review by: parlance on Feb. 12, 2011 :
Thoroughly enjoyed this "different" story. I would love to read more about Sami Dawson. The story sets up a world that seems at first to be like ours, but is evidently in a parallel dimension. The transition from everyday world to magical one is handled in a believable and fascinating way. I sure hope this turns out to be the first chapter of a novel. However, it is a satisfying read as a stand-alone story.
