A Witch's Life by Elsie Langston



A Witch's Life
By Elsie Langston
From Looking for Mr. Good Witch
By Joyce and Jim Lavene














Being a witch isn’t all fun and games, you know! It’s not dancing naked in the moonlight all the time.

It has its moments but sometimes you have to go through a lot to get to them.



For instance, a sea witch has been killing young male witches up and down the coast from Savannah 

to Wilmington for the last few weeks. Now this isn’t one of those witches you can take tea with or 

even attempt to understand. Oh no! They only know one thing – find a man so you can drain his

magic and live another hundred years.



Maybe I wouldn’t have noticed but for a handsome young witch I hope will become a member of our 

coven. Killing him for any reason is completely against my plans for the future. I mean, I have Larry 

the werewolf so it’s not a romantic thing. I just like Brian and I want to him to stick around.



So my friend Molly says we have to find the sea witch and convince her not to take Brian but have 

you ever tried to find a sea witch when she didn’t want to be found? We had to talk to that silly, 

cream-puff-eating mermaid that’s hard to understand and then we had to talk to that ungrateful 

selkie. 

We saved that selkie's life, you know. She’s never even said thank you.



And then when we thought Brian was safe – I guess I shouldn’t tell you that part - loose lips and all. 

You’ll just have to read the book. After all, someone went to a great deal of trouble to write it and so 

forth. It’s rather nice having someone chronicle our lives. I wonder what will come next?

  22. Sounds like a great story that I can't wait to read! That there is at least one male witch included (not enough of them around, as far as I'm concerned), just makes it all the more interesting. Thanks for the chance to win.

  28. I found this cute little poem called:
    Witches' Brew

    When autumn leaves begin to fly,
    A Harvest Moon shines full and high
    Cold wind chill you to the bone?
    Do what Spooks have always known!

    Grab a cauldron (or a cup),
    Add mix and water, stir it up,
    Garnish with a worm or two,
    A warming cup of Witches' Brew!

    Thank you for the chance to win.
