Blurb: Josephine uncovers an important secret about the Valituras, a power-hungry organization that has lived in secret for centuries. They have amassed powerful dark magic and infiltrated all levels of the government. Now that their existence is publicly exposed and Josephine’s discovery leads to the capture of more Valituras agents, they decide to make a big move and declare war against the country. Josephine scrambles to protect herself and her loved ones from this powerful foe.

 

As she uncovers more clues in her search to expose the hidden identities of the Valituras leaders, her boyfriend grapples with his new talent of white magic which proves to be a potent yet unreliable source of power. Even as Mark’s abilities expand, he struggles to avoid burnout which will lead to a coma and reversion back to mainstream magic. When the U.S. government’s MADA department hires him to attempt restoration of an ancient historical site, American Stone Henge, the Valituras target him for termination.

 

As Josephine’s psychometry brings her closer to the truth about the Valituras, she fears the answers will come too late.

I’m very excited to talk about my latest book, Dark Energy, which is the third installment in the Grumpy Old Wizard series. It’s an urban fantasy that takes place in sunny Florida. I lived in the Sarasota, Florida area for awhile and it was a beautiful place that inspired me to choose that locale as a setting for some of my books. I used to visit the Siesta Key beach frequently and enjoyed it immensely. I’ve never seen a beach with such soft, white sand before and highly recommend a vacation there to any beach-going enthusiasts.

 

Josephine O’Connor, the protagonist of Dark Energy is a special breed of wizard called a category six with a lot more fire power than the normal wizard and a few extra abilities thrown into the mix. One of her rare talents that gives her an edge with police investigations is her psychometry which is so sharp and finely tuned that she doesn’t usually have to touch an object to receive psychic impressions from it.

 

Josephine and her two best friends are in their eighties and have all recently become immortal so in spite of their advanced years, they have bodies akin to a woman in her early twenties. Unfortunately, there is a powerful and corrupt organization called the Valituras that has until recently lived in secret and Josephine finds herself forced to face off with them to protect the world.
