Witch in the Wind

Review by Nancy

Bandit Creek, Montana, wasn’t much of anything. Until you looked a bit deeper, then you saw them: witches, warlocks, daemons and other thingies. Avy’s parents were killed so she is called home to wrap up the loose ends. Funerals, house, bills, that kind of stuff. She is a bit taken back to find their house trashed and an odd-looking dog hiding under the porch. She immediately takes to the dog which is good because he doesn’t act like he’s leaving anytime soon. Christened Busby the dog won’t leave her side, especially when she hauls him to the vet for a check-up. The vet isn’t too fond of Busby as he recognizes a familiar when he sees one. After all, Avy is the reason he’s currently in Bandit Creek! Marcus works for the Council – those who hold all the power in a system tightly controlled.

Two Council members cannot have a child together. It is impossible. But there Avy is standing in his exam room with a mongrel. Someone is NOT happy. They want Avy “put down” as a mutant. She doesn’t even know what magical power she has! In fact, she didn’t know her parents’ history at all!! Strange things keep happening as she finally realizes she has something someone wants very badly – but what? An excellent story with great characters and part of a series. Look them up and get them all!!

The Author Brenda Collins has wanted to write romance since she was twelve years old. At the age of twenty, she spoke to an editor who expressed an interest in her story; however, she soon realized it takes more than an idea to be an author. She joined a number of writing groups to learn about ‘the craft’ and completed two mystery manuscripts. When the Bandit Creek opportunity arose, Brenda jumped on board immediately.

WITCH IN THE WIND emerged, starting first with a murder, but then came to life with witches, warlocks, a “familiar” and a magical dimension called The Otherland. Brenda has also just completed STORIES OF CHANCE ROMANCE with her writing buddy, Roxy Boroughs. This is a collection of 11 short tales that reflect the hope that comes with the first bloom of romance, whether you find it in your youth, midlife, or the twilight years. All authors’ profits from the sale of this anthology are being donated to advance the research, education, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

You can find it as an ebook on Amazon at http://amzn.com/B009J2KCLM

 To help her fellow writers develop strong business skills, Brenda has delivered workshops to hundreds of writers on career planning, professional networking and presentation skills, and regularly contributes articles on these topics to a wide range of publications, such as her recent piece, How to Improve Your Presentation Skills, in 2013 Writer’s Market Deluxe Edition (Brewer, R.L., ed., Ohio: Writer's Digest Books).

WITCH IN THE WIND isn’t the end of the story for Marcus and Avy—they will have a role to play in resolving the situation with the Witches Council at some point, but before that happens, Brenda promises magical people from The Otherland will continue to slip through the portal to the mortal world for more adventures. Brenda is also currently working on something completely different about a newly licensed, female private investigator who learns more than she bargained for while investigating diamond laundering.
