Firstly, I have to say that I really enjoyed books 1 - 6. Some are stronger than others, but overall they are well-written and packed with action, plus the whole wicca thing is well-researched and really interesting to read about. Morgan is also an interesting character who goes through a lot of personal growth and development, and her attraction to the new boy in town and her feelings about her friend Bree and her parents and her sister et al are completely relatable. I also liked books 8, 9, and 12, and would give these nine books 3.

New Orleans is one of the most interesting American cities, and it has an incredibly rich and exotic culture that had a profound influence on me. Kids in other cities have lemonade stands; we sold voodoo gris-gris and made wax dolls in the likenesses of our enemies.
I went to school in New York, and after school went back to New Orleans. Then I went back to New York Manhattan and got a job in publishing and started writing. My first book, a young, middle-grade chapter "was born in New Orleans, LA, in My first book, a young, middle-grade chapter book, was published in There was so much to do and see, and so many interesting people to watch.
There was a lot of frenetic energy there, and sometimes that felt very wearing and hard to live with. After eight years I was ready for a change, and my husband and I moved back to New Orleans. Are you seeing a pattern here? I thought it was great. We stayed in New Orleans five years. By the time we had two small children we knew we had to find someplace safer to live.
I was glad my children were born in New Orleans--I had been born there, and my father had, and his father had, and his father had and so on. There was something about the connection of generations of blood coming from one place that I found very primal and important. Now I live in a cohousing community in Durham, NC. There are a lot of strong women here, and I find them inspiring. Am I a witch? Well, no.
Even Wicca is too organized a religion for me. However, I can really relate to Wicca, and I so appreciate its woman-centeredness and its essentially female identity. I love those aspects, among others. I have several favorite writers. Barbara Hambly has been the biggest influence on how I describe magic.
I love Barbara Pym, an English writer whose books came out mostly in the fifties. I greatly admire P. She has a beautiful, precise, educated command of the language that leaves me in awe. I read a lot of nonfiction and also have some favorite romance writers. I also just like reading about sex.

I see things, feel things in a new way. Powerful things. Magickal things. It scares me. I never choose to learn witchcraft. Overall, Morgan is an ordinary girl that lives an ordinary lifestyle.
