My Novel: Delilah Recovered
Dee is an unemployed accountant managing an anxiety disorder and an eviction notice. She's also a powerful witch, but she doesn't know that yet.
Until one fateful night when her reality cracks wide open as witch hunters attack, and she finally learns the truth. Well, part of it...
As a descendant of Joan of Arc, her family is the “guardian of the ring.” Uncovering this information only leaves her with more questions. Why did her coven banish her for three-hundred years? Why is the ring so important? Why has her true identity been kept a secret from her?
To put all the missing pieces together, she must go on a series of mind-altering quests. She’ll risk life and limb to recover the facts traveling through time from the court of the Sun King Louis XIV of France to the Salem Witch Trials. Meanwhile, she searches Chicago’s shadows to find and translate her family's grimoire pages, only to discover she’s the guardian of King Solomon’s ring and the power it holds to command good and evil.
From the safety of reality to the underbelly of a secret world, she must take her rightful place to protect witches and humans from the ring.
