My Debut Novel: Dust on the Altar

A reluctant witch must regain the powers she abandoned years ago, in order to protect her coven and bring her aunt's killer to justice.


Jade loved her life in Sun City: Their technology was cutting edge, she was right hand woman to the most powerful business owner in the country, and no one suspected she was a witch. Then she finds out her aunt, High Priestess of her coven and Jade's last remaining family member, has been murdered. As the last of her bloodline, She has no choice but to leave her beloved city life, regain the powers she abandoned years ago, and take her place as coven leader. On top of all that she has to reconcile with the best friend she left behind, who is now the man she must call partner.

But something's terribly wrong in her hometown of Sugar Hill. The coven's magic is failing, and someone has stolen the keys needed to complete the ascension ritual. Will she come to terms with her tragic past, or will she run from her responsibilities, leaving the coven to flounder and die?


"In this small town, nestled in the wild countryside, lived the memories she had tried to forget."

Current Progress

July 2019 Update:

     My years long revision has come to an end. While I'm still waiting on a couple CPs (Critique Partners) to finish some chapters, I'm pretty sure I've got the most labor intensive fixes done. Now I just have to go through all their notes, my notes, and have a couple more passes for typos and such. Then I'm off to the races... I mean Betas.
