1. Tell us about your witch and the powers she has.
In I’d Rather be a Witch, Jordyn is a powerful witch who is descended from a long line of witches back home. Her powers are earth-based, giving her healing abilities and some powerful spells. But she can dabble in black magic when she’s upset – like bringing her boyfriend back from the dead.
2. Where did you get the inspiration for your character?
Jordyn was a secondary character in my previous book, How to be a Mermaid, and she kept popping up in my mind, wanting to tell me her story. Her story is very dark, but tragic, so it just kind built from there!
3. If you had a magical ability - what would it be and why?
As simple as it is, I’d love to be able to fly. One of my most favorite things in the world is travel, and I’d use that ability to travel around the world.
4. Who is your favorite TV or movie witch?
Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Willow was one of the first witches I’d ever been introduced to and she grew throughout every season of the series.
5. If you had a familiar what would it be (you can choose any animal) and what would you call him/her?
I kind of already a have a familiar in my cat, Scout – she follows me all around the house and sits with me whenever I’m writing or reading.

About I’d Rather be a Witch
Jordyn wasn’t careful with what she wished for.
After making a reckless choice that destroyed her life and the life of her high school sweetheart, Jordyn fled her small town to be a professional mermaid. Being around water suppresses her earth-based magic, something she desperately needs.
Yet Jordyn can't suppress who she really is - a witch.
When she learns that her mother is dying of cancer, she returns home. But it isn’t until people end up dead and everyone points fingers that she realizes her past is coming back to haunt her. Because her ex-boyfriend Zach has been waiting for her. And he hasn’t forgotten how she brought him back to life that night three years ago.
Jordyn will finally have to embrace being a witch to learn the truth. And it will change her life forever.
** I'd Rather be a Witch is a tie-in with How to be a Mermaid. It uses some of the same characters and can be read as a standalone or a complement to it. **
