When I was in New York visiting my parents, I had a lot of time to roam around their neighborhood in Amityville. Lest you think a writer is ever not working, I came up with the idea for The Witches Sib when I was there for Christmas of last year, characters popping into my head as I wandered past these old, Victorian and Colonial-style homes that dot the tree-lined streets. I always came back to this one in particular.


Something about the peeling paint, the wraparound porch, the way a house like this seems to watch you… there’s something witchy about it to me. When I went back last month, I snapped a few pictures of other houses that will create the setting for the story.

  1. Tease! I’m loving Secret Ones so far and now you tease with hints of another one with history and witchery fun!? You’re killing me! …. in a totally fantastic way. (btw – i’ll email you in a bit with regards to secret ones thoughts.)

    That makes me so happy! Especially as I sit here, taunted by a pile of blank pages. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the book!!!!
