Piper Addison is in it deep. Turns out, finding out how your ghost familiar met her doom is not as easy as it sounds…

Tourist season is over and Orchard Hollow is as peaceful as ever. Piper Addison, the town witch and cafe owner, finally gets to kick back her sneakers and relax. The weather is glorious, her dusty love life has been resurrected, and she’s all caught up on binge watching shows. Nothing can be better!

Well, except for one slight problem.

Piper promised her ghost familiar she’d help find out what landed her in the land of the non-living.

It wouldn’t be so bad if the ghost didn’t have a case of amnesia and a serious need of an attitude adjustment. One thing is for certain, Piper’s familiar didn’t kick the bucket by choice.

Between figuring out the mystery of Stella’s demise, battling a raccoon for cookies, and tracing her mom’s steps hoping to reunite with a father she never met; Piper has her hands full. And this time, even her strange magic might not be enough to get her out of this bind.

Killing Grinds is a paranormal cozy mystery complete with an unlucky witch, a ghost familiar, and a feisty raccoon with a talent for getting into sticky situations.

Q&A With the Author

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

My favorite part would have to be meeting Piper’s, the main protagonist’s, mom. I had a vision for Sylvie Addison in my head and when I began to write her, seeing her come to life was amazing. It helped deepen the story, and I hope gave the reader a better understanding of the family dynamic between the women. 

Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about?

Always! I am currently working on Guild of Ravens, the first book in The Gilded Queens. Guild of Ravens is an NA fantasy that follows Astrid Sawyer as she discovers a hidden realm right under her nose. Unfortunately for Astrid, the realm she stumbles into has a terrible prophecy where every century, four queens must die to sustain the magic of the land. What’s even more unfortunate is poor Astrid is one of the queens. . . Guild of Ravens is set to release January 30th, 2024, and I cannot wait!

Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future?

I suppose it’s no surprise that Orchard Hollow was signed for another 3 books, so my future will be spent getting those ready. I am also planning a spinoff from the series based on a character we will meet in book 4, Devil in a French Press. 

How long have you been writing?

As long as I can remember. I wrote my first novel when I was twelve; it was a ghost story that was terrible and will never see the light of day. But it put a fire under me to write more and by the time I was in university, I was hooked. It took several poetry publications to get me moving into novels though, specifically fantasy and mystery. Now, I don’t know how I wrote anything else. I just love a good mystery!

Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans?

Make sure you look for Easter eggs in the books. I always add them in, and you never know when they’ll get discovered in future books. . .
