Claire Wiche is an ordinary woman, running her Wicca shop, The Wiche’s Broom, in an ordinary California beach town.

But Claire wasn’t always ordinary, and she isn’t quite human. She hides a secret, and a past she thought she had put behind her.
A past that is about to explode into her present.

When it does, and everyone she loves is in danger, Claire must face up to her past – and become what she left behind in order to save them.

Writing On The Edge Of Reality

If you go to my website, this is my tagline. Right away, it will tell you that I don’t write happy bunny stories.

Don’t get me wrong – I do have humor in my books. But there is also an edge – an “everything is not what it seems” edge. My fantasy work hints at it – hey, being fantasy, we are already stepping off the reality road. My latest book, Rest For The Wicked, takes you by the hand, walks you right to the edge and invites you to take a look.

No one is more surprised than me that my writing headed in this direction. I grew up reading epic fantasy, with the sweeping worlds that took you on a journey, a quest, a rescue – sometimes all three.

But I also grew up seeking the spooky, the scary, the twilight zone weirdness. I shivered under the covers with Stephen King, and the earlier stuff by Dean Koontz. So it shouldn’t be so surprising that I am seriously awful at writing those epic stories, and gravitate to the supernatural.

It’s where I feel at home, where my voice is most genuine, and where writing is no work and all fun. Yep – I am liking it out here on the edge of reality. And I enjoy taking you along with me.

And to thank you all, I am giving away five spooky little gifts. Just leave a comment here, and you will have a chance to win.

Until next time – read on.


Cate Dean has been writing since she could hold a pen and put more than two words together on paper. She grew up losing herself in the wilds of fantasy worlds, and has had some of her own adventures while tromping through the UK, and a few other parts of the world. A lover of all things supernatural, she infuses that love into her stories, giving them a unique edge. When she’s not writing, she loves cooking, scaring herself silly in the local cemeteries, and reading pretty much anything she can get her hands on.
