The amazing Hannah Jayne just had a Catastrophic Computer Failure yesterday (our hearts go out to her) so until she can reassemble the pieces of her life in data form, I’m posting her blog stop on my blog.

Q: What is your working title of your book?
Under A Spell
Q: Where did the idea come from for the book?
The heroine in my series, Sophie Lawson, carries around a lot of grief from being bullied all through high school. With the proliferation of bullies in the news lately, I thought Sophie needed to go back to high school and deal with her past. I mean, she can slay demons – what’s a few mean girls?
