After being orphaned, high school student Josie Barton only has one person she can turn to when things get rough—a mysterious legal guardian who calls himself her Benefactor. “Ben” takes care of everything for her. He pays her bills, provides food, clothes, and even a cell phone. But there is one thing Ben doesn’t know: Josie Barton sees scary imaginary creatures everywhere she goes. Even her apartment is being haunted by an invisible monster! And just when Josie thinks things couldn’t get any worse . . . she meets the guy from across the hall.

Zeph Clemmont is a man of many faces. He’s a changeling with enemies in all the worst places, fighting to undo a magical curse that could end his life. He loves a good argument and has incredible magical power, but he may have met his match in Josie. So far, she’s the only one who seems able to rein in his childish tantrums and magical explosions. Zeph will have to swallow his pride and finally let go of all his dark secrets if he really wants to break his curse. And with Josie at his side, he might actually stand a chance this time.


What was your favorite part writing Mad Magic?

It’s so hard to pick a favourite part. I fell in love with this story pretty much right away. I’ve spent years developing the world and characters, and the longer I worked (and am continuing to work) on it, the more I love it. The chemistry between Josie and Zeph never ceases to make me laugh, and sprinkling in elements from familiar old folklore stories and faerie tales is too much fun! But I’d be lying if I didn’t say that writing the battle scenes and magical battles wasn’t my absolute favourite part.

I’ve always liked to write action and battle scenes, and MAD MAGIC was my first dive into writing them with fantasy elements staged in a modern setting. I was slightly daunted by it at first, but I do love a good challenge. With each different species of fae having a “brand” of magic unique to them, MAD MAGIC has a bit of it all. Hopefully, it won’t fail to keep readers curious and exhilarated by the variety!
