Not Your Usual Familiar
All of my life I, Maggie Parks, couldn’t wait to get my very own familiar. After all, my mama has an ornery cat named Riule, Gilbert the macaw is my sister’s, Lilith, and Ms. Kitty the owl is my Auntie Meme’s.
I guess I should explain that I’m a witch and a familiar is usually an animal or supernatural spirit that will aid a witch in performing magic. Simple, right? Wrong!
Vinnie. My familiar’s name is Vinnie. Now, I don’t know about you, but that name sounds to me like Vinnie is somewhat outspoken, do what I want kinda name. Not only is my familiar’s name is Vinnie, but to make matter worse, Vinnie is a 1965 classic red AC Cobra. Can you get a car that screams muscle car?
You got it. Vinnie is my snarky familiar. Just how is Vinnie going to help me get out of my predicament where I’ve been thrown into helping Agent Mick Jasper, undercover agent for SKUL, a little-known division of Interpol – the Secret Keepers of the Universal Laws, figure out how to fix his investigation when I’m the one who messed it up by botching up a silly little spell after I lost a bet with Lilith playing Truth or Spell.

While Maggie waits for her Witchy Hour, she words at the family diner with her mom, Aunt Meme, and Lilith, her sister-all witches. Soon Maggie gets entangled with a mysterious handsome stranger, Mick Jasper, and his secret U.S. organization, SKUL. Has she found her calling?
