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.

An Unstrung Story
In a world where genetically-engineered humans serve as slave labor to “real humans,” two prototype children, designed to be the most superior models ever created, look to each other to find a way to escape their fate. They may discover that being “artificial” doesn't mean they can't love.
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.
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….
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.
To save her wedding date, Selena must prove her fiancé’s innocence…and find a murderer.
Wedding bells are ringing soon for Selena Marx and Calvin Standingbear, so with her plate already overloaded, a reality-show film crew tumbling into Globe, Arizona, barely registers on her radar, psychic or otherwise. The only thing Selena wishes she had is an extra hand to keep the show’s aggressively flirty host, Dillon James, at arm’s length.
Her bestie, Josie Woodrow, is over the full moon, sure that Monster Hunt will put sleepy little Globe on the map. But the show’s search for the legendary Mogollon Monster — this region’s version of Bigfoot — isn’t what makes headlines.
No, it’s the blood-spattered crime scene, starring Dillon James’ very dead body. The fact that something with huge claws ripped out his throat. And a strand of flimsy evidence that points a DNA finger squarely at Calvin.
Selena leaves no Tarot card unturned in her desperation to save her fiancé — and her wedding date. But all her cards and her pendulum can tell her is that the real murderer is close enough to breathe down her neck…and this monster won’t hesitate to kill again.
One year down, two to go…unless Callie’s search for justice gets her expelled.
The pressure is on as Callie Dobkins begins her second year at Miss Primm’s Academy for Wayward Witches. Not only does she have the same stern-faced witch for her Spells professor, her older sister is planning her wedding around Callie’s graduation date.
Which means if she fails, she’ll not only be banished, she’ll break her sister’s heart. All the more reason to do her absolute best to control her magic. Except one girl — Callie’s worst enemy, Mona McGee — is winning her magical trials with such annoying regularity, Callie is forced to wonder if someone is cheating.
Snooping for evidence only succeeds in getting her grounded. And even her handsome boyfriend, Lochlan, is urging her to back off and let Miss Primm handle it.
Because if Callie’s caught, she’ll be expelled and exiled to Mundania, far from everyone she loves...including Lochlan.
One last chance to control her magic…or she’s banished to a world without it.
At the ripe old age of eighteen, Calendula Dobkins should be able to cast simple enchantments as easy as breathing. But most days, Callie and magic aren’t exactly on speaking terms. Not that she doesn’t have it. More like…she has control issues.
Her parents pack her off to Miss Primm’s Academy for Wayward Witches, where she has only three years to whip her unruly magic into shape. Or DOME (the Department of Magical Exile) will banish her to Mundania. A world without magic.
Callie quickly learns which girls have her back, and who will throw her under the bus. Pop quizzes can be killer. The Beginning Spells professor seems have it in for her. And…just who is the mysterious Miss Primm, anyway?
Then there’s the six feet of Scottish gorgeousness she meets at the joint school dance with Master Marco’s School for Woeful Wizards, Lochlan Abernathy. If Callie can survive finals with a ticket to year two, maybe they can do more than just dream about the future….

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.

She’s just gotten control of her wild magic. Now she’ll have to set it free…
Now that she’s finally got a handle on her unruly magic — and a future to dream about with Lochlan — Callie Dobkins is looking forward to her final year at the Academy for Wayward Witches. Until the sour-faced Miss Hendricks makes a somber announcement. Miss Primm is missing…and so is Master Marco of the School for Woeful Wizards.
Even though the students are told to keep their noses to the grindstone of an increasingly dangerous course load, Callie and her friends can’t help but connect the dots. But Callie alone can’t shut out the inner voice warning her to keep quiet about her suspicions.
In a horrible moment, the conniving Mr. McGee exiles Callie to Mundania. Although his evil enchantment fails to erase her memory, Callie will have to draw on all her wild magic to find her way home to her family. To Lochlan. And to the circle of friends who will try to root out the corruption at the academy once and for all.
