She likes to take midnight rides on horseback and practises levitation twice a day. However, upon reflection I didn't think my editor would be too amused by this flight of fancy. So here it is, the official (and much less exciting) Natasha Mostert biography:

“I believe that there is luminosity hiding in the shadow of the mundane. And things that hover at the periphery of our vision. If that’s magic, then I believe in it.”

“Men don't become worth your while until they're in their thirties." …
"Well, it's not automatic with all men, you know." …
"With women, of course, it's different. Women are born interesting.”
Natasha Mostert, Season of the Witch

“They were slowing down. The noise of the rope as they reached the full extent of the jump sounded like the ricochet crack of the sail on a tall ship. And now they were accelerating again, up, up and suddenly they were hanging suspended: weightless in space. No up or down. The feeling of disorientation absolute.”
Natasha Mostert, Season of the Witch

Polls

As I mentioned, I wanted to read a witch themed book for our scary October read. However, I had a bit of trouble finding really scary witch themed books, but that's okay. We'll just go with mildly creepy...perhaps. This is a quick poll, as my Season of the Witch event at Castle Macabre hinges on this pick. Last day to vote is this Sunday.
