Being the winner isn't about how rich you are, but about how much you're prepared to pay... and for Genny that price might just mean her death!
Genny's life has never been busier: the summer solstice is approaching, magic is going haywire, Spellcrackers.com is under inexperienced new management, and London is hosting this year's Carnival Fantastique. Then a unicorn is found horribly mutilated in Regent's Park, garden fairies start dying out of season, and an eminent wildlife activist and her young son are snatched from a Conservation Conference.
Searching for answers takes Genny and her friends, Tavish the kelpie and the super-sexy vampire Malik al-Khan, deep into magical London to the decadent and dangerous Forum Mirabilis, the secret, bloody heart of the Carnival Fantastique. And it's not long before Genny and her friends are under attack from a millennium-old adversary as they fight to save both the victims and themselves...

After years in retail management, she started writing. The Sweet Scent of Blood, the first of the Spellcrackers.com series, is her first novel. She lives with her husband and rescue dogs in Bournemouth.
