About Christine Pope
A native of Southern California, USA Today bestselling author Christine Pope has been writing stories ever since she commandeered her family’s Smith-Corona typewriter back in the sixth grade. Because she's a lover of many genres, her books include paranormal romance, fantasy romance, and science fiction/space opera romance. She blames this on being easily distracted by bright, shiny objects, which could also account for the size of her shoe collection. The Land of Enchantment cast its spell on her while she was researching her Djinn Wars series, and she now makes her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

When you pull up stakes, make sure you don’t get stabbed in the back.
Self-taught in the arcane arts, hedgewitch Selena Marx is comfortable doing divination for West Los Angeles’ anxiety-ridden housewives, lawyers, and aspiring actresses. Her biggest challenge? Avoiding Lucien Dumond, leader of the Greater Los Angeles Necromancers’ Guild, who views her as fresh meat to add to his harem of slavishly devoted groupies.
Selena’s not interested in the slimy, celebrity-schmoozing sorcerer, but nobody turns Lucien down without consequences. When he threatens to fit her with magical cement shoes and drop her off the Santa Monica Pier, Selena’s Tarot cards point her to Globe, Arizona, for a new home, a new shop, and a cursed pet cat.
Just as she’s settling in and meeting the locals — including Calvin Standingbear, hunky chief of the San Ramon Apache tribal police — Lucien tracks her down…and promptly disappears. When his body turns up on tribal lands, it’s up to Calvin to investigate. Starting with Selena.
And when one of Lucien’s acolytes is killed, traces of dark magic and cryptic warnings from the spirits send Selena and Calvin in a race against time — before a too-close-for-comfort evil cuts her own life short.
The Hedgewitch for Hire series will continue with book 2, Social Medium, releasing on March 31, 2021. The romance subplot will stretch over the entire series, while each novel will be a self-contained mystery without a cliffhanger.
There’s no mean girl like an internet mean girl. Especially when she’s a witch.
Selena hasn’t been in Globe, Arizona, very long, but she's quickly learned to be wary when her friend Josie gets a bright idea — like insisting she join the growing legion of internet witches. While being an Instagram star sounds like a good way to promote her metaphysical shop, Selena can’t ignore the feeling she’s about to get some pretty crappy juju dropped on her head.
It isn’t as if she doesn’t have time to produce content — or even date, since it appears tribal police chief Calvin Standingbear has ghosted her. Too bad the perfectly nice rancher who offers his place for a live-streamed solstice bonfire ritual doesn’t strike a single spark.
But when the dark side of social media rears its ugly head, Selena’s going to need all the friends she can get, including the secretive police chief. Because social media rivalries can be murder — and Selena could be targeted as a suspect…or the next victim.
Never get into a bidding war with a demon. Winning could be murder.
One phone call from her mother, and Selena Marx’s relatively quiet summer ends with the clang of alarm bells in her head. Mom and her husband are coming to Globe…and not just to meet Selena’s boyfriend of two months, Calvin Standingbear. They’ve also dipped a toe into the local real estate market.
By buying the most haunted Victorian mansion in town. Sight unseen.
Resigned that there’s no talking them out of their vacation rental dreams, Selena checks the place out for herself. Oddly, she senses nothing. But there’s no mistaking the unholy racket of bangs, wails, and evil laughter blasting through the walls. Something is infesting this house, and it’s not your garden-variety ghost.
This time, her arsenal of moon water, coffin nails, and rock salt isn’t going to cut it. Selena needs backup, but when it arrives, the house strikes back — hard and deadly. Now her parents are murder suspects. If Selena can’t find the true culprit, she could be the haunted mansion’s next victim.
The cards never lie…and this time, the truth is deadly.
Four months into being a not-so-platonic couple, Selena Marx and Calvin Standingbear are getting into the spirit of Halloween in Globe, Arizona, complete with elaborate costumes. Selena’s even agreed — a bit hesitantly — to do a limited number of Tarot readings for her best friend Josie’s blowout Halloween bash.
The party is going spookily well…until Selena’s reading for high school principal Danny Ortega. The cards don’t hold back about his less-than-savory dalliances, predicting that karma won’t be kind. In fact, karma strikes back before the party’s even over — as Danny drops dead.
When Danny’s ghost asks Selena to uncover who killed him, she has no choice but to dig through his rather checkered romantic past for clues. All while taking the next step in her and Calvin’s relationship — meeting his parents.
And if that’s not enough to make Selena want to dive head-first into a bowl full of Halloween chocolate, discovering the heartbreaking truth behind Danny’s death might be the final blow….

A match decreed by fate. A love awakened by magic…
Life as Rafael Castillo knows it is about to come to an end. Twenty-one years ago, his grandmother, then head witch of the Castillo clan, helped the McAllister clan defeat a dark wizard...for a price. The payment, Miranda McAllister, is now on her way to be his bride. A medieval arrangement, but there’s no naysaying Rafe’s mother, who is intent on carrying out his grandmother’s wishes.
Miranda’s parents tried everything — even revealing her lack of magical gifts — to break this unholy bargain, to no avail. As her Halloween birthday approaches, she journeys to Santa Fe, where the betrothed she’s never seen awaits.
Their first meeting is more like Beauty clashing with Beast than Cinderella dancing away with Prince Charming. But their first kiss is electric, triggering a storm of emotions and odd experiences that make Miranda wonder if her long-dormant magic is finally bursting from its shell.
However, even as Rafe and Miranda begin to grow closer, threads of dark magic are weaving a spell that could destroy their clans’ alliance…and any chance for love.
Hidden Gifts is the first novel in the Witches of Canyon Road series, a spin-off from Christine Pope’s bestselling Witches of Cleopatra Hill books.
A single wish shatters her world. Fixing it could break her heart.
One phone call. That’s all it takes to throw Autumn Garnett’s future out of whack. She and Michael McAllister have an agreement: When he finishes his law degree, they’ll settle in her beloved Flagstaff. His decision to take a job in Jerome, of all places, is definitely not part of the plan.
Autumn knows better than to throw wishes around lightly. They tend to come true…permanently. But in a fit of anger, she flings the worst possible wish out into the universe.
I wish Michael and I had never met.
And the universe shifts.
More like shatters into pieces, re-forming into a timeline she barely recognizes. One where Michael is in love with someone else. And she can’t simply wish her way back into his heart. It’s going to take the one thing that, as the wheel of the year turns, is slipping through her fingers.

A love lost in dark magic. A path to redemption obscured by evil…
Cruelly dumped at the altar by the man she loves, Miranda McAllister turns her back on Santa Fe and takes off with Simon Gutierrez, who promises to help her develop her newly awakened magical powers…even though her logical self warns against acting on impulse so soon after her humiliation at Rafe Castillo’s hands.
Under Simon’s patient guidance, Miranda discovers the astounding depth and breadth of her gifts. Yet too many unanswered questions leave her uneasy, especially when Simon indicates he’d like to move them out of the friend zone.
Rafe Castillo still can't figure out what the hell happened the day of his wedding. A powerful spell forced him to spew those spiteful words at Miranda…and whoever cast that spell has covered their tracks so thoroughly, no trace remains — to Rafe's human form, at least. His coyote alter ego can track fainter wisps of magic, magic as dark and hateful as the things he said that fateful day at the church.
Intent on finding Miranda no matter what, Rafe relentlessly follows a twisting, turning, increasingly deadly trail. But by the time he learns the truth, the race to save her from an unspeakable evil may already be lost….
Sweet baby Jesus, someone’s stolen a lot of Christmas dough!
All is calm and bright as Globe, Arizona’s holiday celebrations approach. Selena Marx should have known it wouldn’t stay that way. The painted snowflakes on her shop window are barely dry when her best friend, Josie Woodrow, bursts in with news that the baby Jesus is missing from the crèche in front of St. Ignatius.
Selena has enough on her mind without having to use her psychic powers to suss out the culprit. Her boyfriend Calvin Standingbear’s parents are still on the snow-covered fence about accepting her, which throws a dimmer on the town’s highly anticipated Festival of Lights. And when Calvin springs a surprise on the solstice, Selena realizes she has some work to do to reconcile the two men in her life: Calvin, and her cursed cat, Archie.
The last thing she needs is a spontaneous vision that indicates the baby Jesus theft was more than just a prank. And if someone doesn’t spill the beans soon, someone’s getting away with…well, not murder (this time), but a whole lot of dough — and we’re not talking cookies.
A storm can cover her tracks…or lead the wolves straight to her door.
With the help of his witch clan, Jake Wilcox is looking forward to a happy future with Addie Grant, the woman he’s falling for. There’s just one thing missing: Addie. Sometime in the night, she up and left. He can guess why — she’d sacrifice almost anything to avoid causing her newfound family any trouble. But the big question is, where did she go?
Addie dutifully went along with the Wilcox clan’s plan to protect her from Randall Lenz, the government operative bent on harnessing her weather magic for not-so-noble purposes. But in the back of her mind, a voice insists that as long as she stays in Arizona, the greater the danger to Jake and the Wilcox witch clan.
Heart breaking, Addie listens to her inner nomad and goes where the wind takes her — a place where no government, no witch, not even Jake can find her. But there are two factors working against her desire to remain hidden: her love for Jake…and the magic that, when danger flares like a wildfire, she has no choice but to unleash.
Kidnapped by a rival witch clan, Angela McAllister envisions a dark future for herself until she discovers her captor’s brother is the unknown man who has haunted her dreams since she was a child. Forced to re-evaluate everything she’s ever known about the Wilcox witches, Angela begins to explore the powerful connection that binds her to Connor Wilcox, despite the generations of hostility between their families and the disapproval of those closest to her. And when a dark, malignant force arises, Angela knows she must draw on her growing powers as prima to protect enemies and allies alike…even if her choice threatens to tear her new and fragile love apart.
Darknight is the second book in the Witches of Cleopatra Hill, a paranormal romance series set in the haunted town of Jerome, Arizona.
