Zoraida Grey and the Magician
The latest book in my Gothic/Fantasy series, Zoraida Grey and the Voodoo Queen, continues the story of a small town fortuneteller on a quest to rescue her best friend from the clutches of a castle-full of Scottish witches. Zoraida’s been reading tarot cards since she was a kid, but she hasn’t had much time to consult them during her adventures.
I do a little tarot reading myself—purely for fun. As part of the new book launch celebration, I thought I’d draw a card from Zoraida’s tarot deck and see what it tells about some of the characters in the story.
In Zoraida Grey’s world, the Magician card is an omen. The first time she used her cards, The Magician showed up as an approaching influence—something important to be dealt with in the future.
A few years later, The Magician made a guest appearance in a very bad dream. In the nightmare, Zoraida found herself standing in an apocalyptic landscape watching the worst things the cards predict happening all around her. A tall figure came out of the shadows—the Magician—but he wasn’t there to save her. She couldn’t tell what his intentions might be and she woke up unsettled.
In Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones, Zoraida meets a Scottish witch named Shea—one of the powerful but devious Logan clan. The Magician card is Shea’s talisman. Shea’s brooding, surly manners—not to mention the indigo tattoos spiraling up his arm and across his chest –complicate Zoraida’s already complicated situation. She can’t trust him. Not with her best friend’s life hanging in the balance.
The Magician is a card of dynamic power. He has control of all the elements but he can be a trickster. He embodies action and power, mastery and cunning. On the flipside, he can misuse his gifts and resort to sleight of hand and betrayal to get what he wants. The planet Mercury and the Zodiac sign of Gemini are associated with the Magician card. These two influencers make the Magician both a skilled communicator and a master juggler—keeping all the plates spinning while he pursues his real agenda.
In Zoraida Grey and the Voodoo Queen, Zoraida finds out whether Shea is a good witch or a bad witch.

Read an excerpt from Zoraida Grey and the Voodoo Queen
Zoraida Grey needs help. With the witchy Logan clan holding her best friend hostage in a haunted Scottish castle, she can’t trust anyone—certainly not beguiling but dangerous Shea Logan. And Al, her overprotective boyfriend, doesn’t believe in magic.
Only one creature strikes fear in the blackened hearts of the Logan witches. Trouble is Jock disappeared five centuries ago leaving a trail of destruction across the Gulf of Mexico. Now he’s stepped into a steaming pile of Voodoo.
Can Zoraida drag wayward Jock back to Scotland? And what’s she supposed to do with two men who promise completely different futures?
A Scottish wizard, stripped naked and painted blue—a Voodoo priestess bent on immortality—a yacht-load of Caribbean pirates. What can possibly go wrong?
