Tell us a bit about yourself
There really isn’t much to tell. I am a dog mom. I am a strong believer of coffee. When I’m not writing, I teach or read.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
No. I have always wanted to be a teacher. I love learning how children work and how their minds learn. It’s so enjoyable to listen to their stories.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
Family. I grew up all over as a military brat and my family is and will forever be my inspiration.
What are you working on now?
I have the other two books in the Dè Danann series. I have a few more fantasy/Rh series I am writing as well as some stand alone and some anthologies.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
Usually I put on Critical Role and eat lots and lots of ice.
What are your hopes for the future?
I hope I get to keep writing these amazing stories and people enjoy them.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Jump in full force. Find an author you know and ask them to be your mentor. I have a great group of women that I am proud to be associated with and they are just amazing. I can go to them for anything.
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
I want to first and foremost say thank you. As readers you can choose any book you want to read and you chose mine. I am truly humbled and honored.
Mark of the Dé Danann
If there is one thing I have learned it is that life is never fair, even for a dé danann witch. This past year has proven that more than anything. After losing my mother to cancer and the man who I thought was the love of my life dumping me for his career, I am well aware of how cruel life could be. Hi, my name is Viola Octavia Magee. This is my not so happily ever after. It all started long before I was even born with a prophecy:
“In her 25th Winter, on the coldest night,
a witch shall become complete.
Paired with lupus, angelus, and daemonium,
none of whom compete.
Power brings responsibility.
Corruption she shall seek.
Coven and its elders.
The end they shall meet.
A tainted hierarchy births an empty throne.
The Queen of the Tuatha Dé Dannon takes her seat.
A dove replacing vultures.
Witch kind shall be complete.”
If only I had known these words earlier…
