A coming of age story... With witchcraft. What if you could do spells, fly on a broom and explore a creepy mansion after school instead of going to drama (queen) club…? That would be way more fun, right? Or would it just create more - drama.
As if high school isn’t bad enough with Meathead McQuarterback bullying her every day for wearing black, Zoey’s secret hideout, the creepy abandoned mansion at the end of the street, is up for sale. It’s the one place where she can forget about the mystery surrounding her father’s death and just feel close to him.
But it turns out that Anastasia LeDoux, the woman that owns the old mansion, is super cool. She lets Zoey help with the spells in her witchcraft correspondence course and when Zoey sneaks into the secret meeting of the Salem Black Hat Society, Anastasia doesn’t rat her out.
...Hey wait a minute - why are these weird old witches talking about Zoey’s father? Do they know what happened to him…? And would they tell her if she asked? Or would they just turn her into a toad?
Zoey and the Witch: Salem Black Hat Society is the first novelette in a YA paranormal series.
If you loved Judy Blume but wished her books featured witches, magic potions and flying brooms then you’ll love this paranormal take on growing up by Judy Gloom.

Wraiths, witches, demons, devils and an ancient sorceress that conjured herself from a Ouija board wreak havoc on the people of Los Angeles. That’s not even the bad news. The bad news is: only a rag-tag team of unlikely heroines can stop them.
The little witch shop in Hollywood has always been a mystery to Jezebel. Until one night when she steps inside and is enchanted by the glittering crystals and exotic potion bottles, enveloped in the rich, musky incense and scented spell candles… When a jar slides across the counter into a woman’s hand, Jez is even more fascinated. The witch, however, is less enamored by the gothy teenager demanding to know how she “did that.”
Later, when Jez finally convinces Lucretia to use her power to help rid people of their supernatural infestations, the pair tackle their first paying gig - banishing a violent demon wraith from a Bel Air mansion. And of course, Lucretia flirts with the widowed husband while his wife’s exhumed body is on the bed.
Will they even be powerful enough to fight the demon? What if it slips into one of their bodies during the exorcism? How come Jezebel can see ghosts when no one else can? And what's with all these emails asking for Lucretia's help, dating back to last Halloween?
The Bel Air Wraith is the first novelette in a paranormal series set in Hollywood, California. Rated R for language, sexual situations and paranormal violence.
If you took a dash of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and added a pinch of The Craft, you’d have the “Jezebel Saves Hollywood” series.
