Laurel Windflower is a witch from a family of magic workers – but her own life is going nowhere. Living in the damp, sunless side of Aro Valley, she works in a café, unable to produce anything more powerful than the most basic herbal potions. Until, one winter morning, Marigold Nightfield knocks on her door.

Marigold is a scientist, but she knows plenty about magic. There are strange things happening in her house, and her future discoveries require careful negotiation with monsters.

Laurel can’t walk away from a mystery – and she can’t walk away from Marigold either. But what lies ahead could reveal all of her shortcomings to the woman she’s trying to impress… or uncover the true nature of her power.

Witching with Dolphins

by Janna Ruth

Cover of Witching with Dolphins.  A Dolphin made of water leaps out of the sea under a full moon.

Harper’s best friend Valerie is everything she is not: beautiful, confident, and the most powerful witch on Banks Peninsula. Together, they run the coffee shop »La Petite Sorcière« and keep the balance between magic, people, and the environment. It’s an honour for Harper to be Valerie’s sidekick, if only they weren’t in love with the same man: dolphin whisperer Ethan.

Friends before magic (or boys) has always been their prerogative, but their determination to hold onto it is tested when a local scientist finds out about their secret and makes Valerie a tempting offer. Harper’s envy and feelings of inferiority lead to a massive fall-out between the two friends that might put both their lives at risk. Yet, when push comes to shove, Harper is willing to give up everything for her friend: Ethan, her life, or even the little magic she has.

Set in Akaroa Harbour, this witchy novella takes you on a magical trip of swimming with the dolphins. It is a story about love, the ocean, and most importantly, friendship.
