Juliet Blackwell (aka Julie Goodson-Lawes, aka Hailey Lind) started out life in Palo Alto, California, born of a Texan mother and a Yankee father. The family soon moved to what were, at the time, the sticks of Cupertino, an hour south of San Francisco. Walking to and from kindergarten every day she would indulge in her earliest larcenous activity: stealing walnuts and apricots from surrounding orchards.

By the time she graduated middle school, the orchards were disappearing and the valley at the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay had become the cradle of the silicon semi-conductor.

Hello Maria,
I know this probably sounds funny to say, but my characters sort of choose their own love lives! Strange, right? Even though I'm officially in charge, they tend to decide who they want to hang out with, and who they respond to, and how. That being said...I agree that there's a lot more to Aidan that what we've seen, and I do believe we'll be getting to know him better in upcoming books -- and I do know Lily is intrigued by and attracted to him. This series seems to have a life of its own, and I can't wait to see what happens, too!

Number 22!

In a Witch's Wardrobe hit #22 on the New York Times Bestsellers list!

I've read the New York Times ever since I moved to New York from California, when I was in my early twenties.  Even though I eventually moved back to California, I've always kept a subscription...and I've always read the Book Review. 

To see my name listed there is an indescribable feeling. 

When I first started writing books,... Read more of this blog post »

“In fact, people who posses not magic at all can instill their home-cooked meals with love and security and health, transforming ingredients and bringing disparate people together as family and friends. There's a reason that when opening one's home to guests, the first thing you do is offer food and drink. Cooking is a kind of everyday magic.”
