"Make the world a better place by living your path" is the Coventina Circle's motto.  Reality often interferes.

The Coventina Circle is an urban coven based in New York City, dedicated to making the lives of its members and the world they live in a better place. Led by high priestess Diana, members Morag, Amanda, Lesley, Sylvie, and their extended circle including Bonnie Chencko and Hartley Crain walk their talk. Unfortunately, life, the mundane world, and, far too often, the paranormal world, interfere.  They have to rely on their own growing talents and on each other to survive.

The circle is named in honor of the Celtic well goddess Coventina, known for her healing powers.  There are several wells attributed to her, the most well-known near Carrawburgh's Fort on Hadrian's Wall.

The Coventina Circle books are paranormal romantic suspense. Each book follows a different member of the Coventina Circle or someone connected to them, as they determine to solve a paranormal danger and find love along the way.  Each book has a different pair of central protagonists, although coven members weave in and out of all the books. There are a total of seven books planned for the series.



Witchcraft, politics, and theatre collide as Morag D’Anneville and Secret Service agent Simon Keane fight to protect the Vice President of the United States -- or is it Morag who needs Simon’s protection more than the VP?

Witch and theatre professional Morag D’Anneville is annoyed when she’s assigned to dress the conservative Vice President as he makes a surprise appearance in his favorite Broadway show. Even more irritating, she has to teach Agent Simon Keane, part of the security detail, the backstage ropes in preparation. A strong attraction flares between them which they both recognize is doomed, and Simon must also fight his superior’s prejudice that Morag’s beliefs make her a threat to the Vice President. When Morag is attacked, Simon’s loyalties are torn between protecting the man he’s sworn to protect, and protecting the woman he loves.

The man’s knife flashed in the glow of the streetlight. Morag kicked at him and scrambled away as he lunged for her. She stumbled, but managed to put more distance between her and the attacker. She grabbed the lid of a trashcan to use as a shield.

A couple out for an evening stroll stopped and watched the fight, mouths open. They stood directly in Simon’s line of fire. “Move!” he ordered. They turned and stared at him, at the gun, like deer in headlights. He saw Morag twist, avoiding the attacker’s next thrust. Simon stepped forward and shoved the couple out of the way. “Get out of here before you get hurt!”

The woman screamed, grabbed the man’s hand, and they ran.

“Drop the knife! Drop it or I’ll shoot!”

The attacker and Morag continued their jerky dance. If Simon fired,he risked hitting her. He needed to position himself to get a clear shot. She was trapped between the garbage cans and the iron railing.

The attacker charged again and Morag squirmed to one side. His knife scraped the plastic lid. Morag grabbed the lid off another can and threw it at him, left- handed. It hit him and bounced. He took a step back.

Simon fired.
