Main character description:

Lauren is a doctor who was raised believing the supernatural and omens. Taking her spirit guide’s warning seriously saved her life.


Lauren has everything she’d ever wished for. Great career, financial security, loving husband, and devoted friends.

When her Raven spirit guide warns her of impending danger, she takes the omen seriously, but she doesn’t have enough time to perform the protection spell her grandmother taught her. Someone breaks into her office and after the brutal attack and the Raven’s repeated warnings, she knows her life is still in danger. Who wants her dead and why?

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

Finally. I’ll be a mom. Lauren put her hand on her belly and couldn’t stop smiling.

Suddenly, she heard a deep, throaty kraa sound. Lauren took a deep breath. She knew what the all too familiar sound meant. Her eyes shot toward the tall oak tree across the street where the eerie sound came from. The Raven’s shiny, black eyes fixated on her and let out another loud screechy sound. Lauren’s stomach shrunk into a knot and a dreadful feeling washed over her. No! Please not again! She screamed in her mind. “Shoo!” she yelled out loud. “Nothing bad is going to happen.”

The Raven flapped its wings, called again even louder, which sent sheer terror through Lauren’s nerves as she remembered her grandmother’s warning. “The Raven is your messenger, and it warns you that something bad is about to happen which will change your life. You must perform a protection ritual and call on the Wolf spirit to protect you from harm.”

A sign of something bad coming wasn’t what she needed. Not with the happy news confirmed this morning. Lauren rushed to her desk and yanked the bottom drawer open. In there was a box with her grandmother’s spellbook, candles, and herbs.

She looked up feeling anxious when she heard the front door of her office opening.
