Bewitched and Enchanted is a beautiful story book, fully illustrated by the author, telling a magical and quirky tale of the little witch girl who wanted to create enchanting music.
This book will be released through Twilight Times Books in April next year.
Journey To Fantastica
Zandra is a modern witch girl who prefers guitars to broomsticks and rock music to drone-like chants. She admires the way the Pied Piper - one of the most famous witches in history - was able to enchant as well as entertain with the music he played on his pipe. Zandra is determined to enchant people with her music, too. The only problem is how?
"Give it up," advises Famous the frog, her familiar. "My de-ar, you are quite tone-deaf and quite, quite rhythmless."
Well! What's a witch girl to do?
Her first attempts at playing her electric guitar cause not only structural damage to the family home but also the family familiars to move out. Music lessons only improve the situation a fraction; and neither her parents nor her brother, Gasgon, nor the other familiars seem for once able to offer assistance.
Then, one starry night, Zandra finds a greater magic than the power of the magical chants or the spells and potions taught by the local coven. And it's a magic every human being posesses.
With awe and trepidation the human onlookers gazed up at the sign hanging in the grounds before the quaint, though modern, looking castle.
With glittering black letters it proclaimed:
‘MAGICAL MYSTERY TOURS

Like sheep the tourists huddled together as they were escorted through the castle's sprawling interior. With eyes out on stalks, they gawked at every nook and cranny of the Room of Secrets, the Wishing Pool Room, the Cook-a-Spell Kitchen, the two-story-high Herb Room, the Room of Good Fortunes and the Pentagram Room, which contained a library of all the magic in the world and beyond. Then out onto the palatial verandah they trouped for refreshments. While drinking strange cocktails they were usually too polite to refuse, they gazed out at the panoramic view of the ocean between marble columns.
