Bewitched at Laveau Hall

Bewitched at Laveau Hall

Witch. Musician. Amateur sleuth.

I'm Lila Darkholme, and my life at university is anything but ordinary; by day, I'm a student, but by night, I'm the lead vocalist of the all-girl rock band, 'The Witch Punks,' weaving enchantment with every strum of my electric guitar.

But there's more to me than music; I'm a witch in a world where the supernatural is real, and humans are dabbling in dangerous magic.

When accidents with mysterious enchanted objects start plaguing my campus, it's up to me and my band to unravel the truth.

Our world isn't all cauldrons and broomsticks; it's a blend of spells and riffs, and my magic is as much a part of my music as it is my life. All I wanted was to ace my classes, rock out with my friends, and maybe find a boyfriend – but reality had other plans.

Now, I'm part Veronica Mars, part Nancy Drew, with a dash of Wednesday Addams, and my life is a Witchapalooza of magic and mystery.

Get ready for a heart-pounding urban fantasy filled with enchantment, found family, and a touch of romance in the electrifying first installment of The Witch Punk Files series.

About the Author
Lyn South

I live for writing, adventure, learning, chocolate, family, love, and really great musical theater (not necessarily in that order).

I've never been one to color inside the lines of life and that means my characters often don't either. I have a super soft spot for rebels who rise from the ashes of their circumstances. I've been the phoenix a time or two (or ten) in my life...been there, done that, got the tattoo. Seriously. I have a phoenix tattoo.

I love all kinds of stories but all types of Fantasy and Science Fiction are my faves. I love adventure and my biggest ones (so far) have been riding a motorcycle through Namibia and South Africa and hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon (took my knees forEVER to recover from that one. As a life-long learner, I dig doing new things. I love helping other people learn, so my 20+ year career as an instructional designer helped me do that but FINALLY, I get to do what I've always dreamed of doing: Write for a living.

I have The Cutest Mini Goldendoodle on the planet, my buddy Indy (so named because I wanted to legitimately say "We named the DOG Indiana").

You should also know that I love helping other writers tell their stories, too. I'm an editor, book coach, and course creator of The WriteStormers Program, a resource and online community for writers who need to get unstuck in their stories (launching in 2022).
