When Caitlin Ross books her band at the new pub in town, the rest of the group is thrilled. She regrets it the second she sets foot inside. An expensive remodel can’t hide the owner’s rudeness or the vile atmosphere. When no one else notices, she wonders if she’s crazy—until a ghost’s appearance at the end of the second set forces her to confront a secret she’s been keeping for years. Caitlin’s a Witch, with the power to perceive things others can’t. An unbearable choice drove her to trade magic for a mundane life, and she wants nothing to do with the unseen world. As she struggles to maintain a normal life, Caitlin discovers the ghost isn’t the only problem at the pub. The site is the center of local legends and mysterious disappearances. Investigating further, Caitlin uncovers secrets, lies, and a web of dark magic set to strangle the town she’s learned to call home. She can prevent chaos from ripping friends and families apart only if she chooses magic over her own safety and makes a bargain she’s been running from for years. The power is hers to claim. The price: an unthinkable sacrifice. “Finally! An Urban Fantasy that gets magic right!”

From the Author:

I wanted to write epic fantasy. You know, those big, sweeping stories with the intricate plots, huge casts of characters, and crazy created worlds chock-full of political intrigue. From the time I could hold a pencil, my goal was to write some incredible trilogy like Lord of the Rings.

Which, I guess, is where every writer of fantasy starts out.

Anyway, for years I worked away at writing epics. And I just couldn't pull it off. Partly because I have a pretty straightforward mind and I can't go through the convolutions necessary to creating politics. Also, I hate gratuitous stupidity, which seems to infect so many epic fantasy characters. And, I am more interested in personal experience and variety of emotional response than it seems lends itself to the genre. For a long time, I sucked at plot because all I wanted to do was explore people's minds.

One year, I read every single cozy in the library. I didn't have any intent; it just kind of happened. And I saw that all these disparate books had certain similarities. The plots were simple, even formulaic. They took a back seat to character and relationship a lot of the time. I found myself thinking, "I could write one of these."

I settled in to do it, using as my starting point a piece of local history about a haunted bar. But as I wrote, I realized I couldn't let go of my desire for magic. So my cozy mutated into something else. At the time, I had no idea what to call it. Paranormal wasn't even a thing. And every step of the way, I struggled to create a magic that made sense within a real-world setting.

The Unquiet Grave is where I ended up. Hope you enjoy it.

From the Back Cover:

"Then he took off his hat, and I saw something else I hadn't seen before. Some blunt object had bashed in the left side of his head, and I could see bits of brain and gore spattered in the wiry, grey hair. He reached into his shirt pocket for a handkerchief to blot the blood streaming over his ear. A piece of skull dropped from his head onto his shoulder."
