Webster has always known what she wanted, and how to accomplish it.
As editor-in-chief ofÂ Lady
sheâ€™s got influence and fame, a social calendar as packed as her
closet, and a gorgeous attorney boyfriend. Jerry is successful,
loving, and ready to settle down. As for Margeâ€”she just feels
exhausted. Maybe that explains her weak knees and fluttering
heartbeat when she runs into Sam Packard, her high-school
then, Sam was the most popular and charismatic guy around. He didnâ€™t
always understand Margeâ€™s dreams, but their connection was
undeniable. Marge isnâ€™t that awestruck girl anymoreâ€”but for the
first time in her life, she has no idea which path to follow. Maybe
the answer is to step back, take a doctor-ordered European vacation,
and explore exactly what and who makes her happy. The answers might
surprise everyoneâ€”especially Margeâ€¦

It is the summer of 1933 and nearly two years since that fateful
Halloween night in Plains, New York.
Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, eighteen-year-old Cletus Blake spends his
days working to help his family through the massive economic
recession spreading throughout the United States and many other areas
of the world. As society struggles to accept that the economic surge
of the 1920s are long gone, Cletus also clings to the memory of his
last phone conversation with his cousin Dorothy. Having formed and
maintained a relationship with two of her close friends – the
recently married Reginald and Gail Carr Johnson – the three find
solace in regular communication with one another.
Like Dorothy, Cletus possesses supernatural abilities inherited through
his bloodline. His vivid dreams and visions – including ones of a
beautiful young Romani woman and twin baby boys – continue to
increase in strength. Meanwhile, Reginald and Gail begin falling prey
to dark adversaries that have been lying in wait.
Evil surrounds at every turn, old friends race to help, and ancient evil
re-emerges. A war between worlds brews beneath the surface,
threatening to rip the protective seams that keep the portals
Then in the midst of it
all, Cletus happens upon a caravan traveling through his Ohio town.
The very familiar Romanichal family’s history ties not only to his
own past, but to all the kin of the four men that experienced worlds
outside of their own on that summer solstice in 1844. All are linked
to a future that will reunite the Blakes and the Livingstons, two
families that at one time, shared a very unlikely

Tiffany Apan grew up among the thick forests of the Appalachian Mountains in
Northeastern Pennsylvania. It was there she began honing artistic
abilities and received much of her creative inspiration. A misfit
among her peers (she was the only one in her fifth grade writing
class obsessed enough with Vikings and Norwegian mythology to write
poems about them), Tiffany was highly active in the artistic
community in Wilkes-Barre, PA, involving herself in all music,
theater, visual arts, and writing. Eventually, she settled quite
comfortably into a role as â€œthat artsy kid in blackâ€ who sits in
a coffee shop, drinking endless amounts of coffee and tea while
writing furiously in a journal or sketchpad.
After graduating high school, she left the Northeastern PA ghosts for the
Southeastern PA zombies (Pittsburgh). Upon the move, Tiffany became
involved with the indie film scene, landing supporting roles in a
couple films. This also gave way to the release of her music with
partner in crime, Jason English. Since then, she has gone on to act
in several films and theater productions with starring and supporting
roles, release music to critical acclaim, and receive accolades for
her writing and producing.
The Appalachian Mountains serve as a backdrop for many of her stories,
including The Cemetery by the Lake and The Birthrite Series.

Aspiring journalist Eugenia Shaw is thrilled to
be doing her first story for Lady Fair magazine, covering New
Yorkâ€™s famous Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. The last thing she
expects is to fall in loveâ€”with a quirky looking Chinese Crested
named Sweetie Pie. Or with the fellow dog lover she keeps
accidentally-on-purpose running into in Central Park . . .
Unlike Jennieâ€™s judgy live-in boyfriend, Paul
is a man who appreciates Sweetie Pieâ€™s unconventional beauty. And
the better they get to know each other, the more it feels like he
appreciates Jennie too. Soon she canâ€™t help noticing how much
happier and more confident she is when theyâ€™re together, or how
Paul encourages her writing. Heâ€™s even inspired her to pitch a
brand new story to Lady Fair. But will she be brave enough to
rewrite her own next chapter? . . .
