I am delighted to welcome Mae Clair to the blog with her fabulous new book.
Myth and Magic.
Do You Remember Watching Scooby-Doo? by Mae Clair
I’d like to thank Daisy Banks for letting me hijack her blog today. I’m delighted to be here, on one of my regular “haunts.”
Don’t laugh, but when I was a kid, I was riveted by Scooby-Doo. Saturday mornings I was glued to the TV, because I knew I was going to get a mesmerizing dose (hey, I was a kid!) of mystery, ghosts, and spookiness. I admit that sometimes Shaggy got on my nerves, but there was never a moment when I DIDN’T want to be part of the group in the Mystery Machine, going around investigating all those bizarre houses and strange monsters.
I don’t think I ever outgrew that desire, which probably explains my ongoing interest in folklore, urban legends, and cryptozoology (think Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster). For my latest release, MYTH AND MAGIC, a romantic suspense/mystery novel set during Halloween, I got a chance to indulge my love of spooky houses and rumored hauntings. Check out the blurb to see what I mean:
AS CHILDREN THEY PLAYED GAMES OF MYTH AND MAGIC…
Veronica Kent fell in love with Caith Breckwood when they were children. As a teenager, she was certain he was the man she was destined to marry. But a traumatic event from Caith’s past led him to fear a future together. He left Veronica, hoping to save her from a terrible fate. Twelve years later, Caith, now a P.I., is hired to investigate bizarre incidents at the secluded retreat Veronica manages. Returning to his hometown, Caith is forced to face his nightmares—and his feelings for the woman he’s always loved.
THEN ONE DAY THE MONSTERS BECAME REAL.
After the callous way Caith broke her heart, Veronica isn’t thrilled to see him again. But strange occurrences have taken a dangerous toll on business at Stone Willow Lodge. Forced to work together, Veronica discovers it isn’t ghostly apparitions that frighten her, but her passion for a man she has never forgotten. Or forgiven. Can two people with a tarnished past unearth a magical future?
