About Phaedra Weldon
Phaedra's imagination and love of television and movie characters often rewarded her with strange looks at school. Her love of science fiction and fantasy blossomed when her cousin Cyndy gave her Anne McCaffrey's "Dragon Flight" for her twelfth birthday.
Other interests are manga, anime, gaming, hiking, waterfalls and spending time with her daughter and too many hours in Final Fantasy XIV.
Her series are The Eldritch Files, The Grimoire Chronicles and the Cast In Shadow Series, (now under the name Phaedra Weldon). There is also the Castle Falls Cozy Paranormal Series, the Women's Paranormal Fiction series named Ravenwood Hills, and she has just started her first Epic Fantasy duology (depending on how it goes, it might become longer).
She is also working on her first non-fiction book, The Writer's Garden, which has become a therapeutic journey into ideas, words, burnout and recovery. She's testing it out on her blog under The Writer's Garden.

Three bodies later and Ginger finds herself, and the hot new small-town doctor, up to their broomsticks in trouble. Ginger sets out to find the real killer before her missing sister’s name shows up on a list in The Book of Ill Deeds.
When a Federation world suffers a planet-wide blackout, it's the S.C.E. to the rescue. While Commander Gomez and her crack team of engineers work to help keep the planet from falling into chaos, the ship's linguist, Bart Faulwell, is given a special assignment: find the Asarion linguist named Jewlan -- who triggered the blackout with what appears to be a weapon in an archaeological dig.
The Asarion people have a unique biology that causes random shifts from male to female. Faulwell's friendship with Jewlan, and her crush on him, is a minor diversion, at first, especially given the struggles Faulwell is having with his own relationship. But when Jewlan becomes Jolen, Faulwell finds himself with more than one difficult decision -- especially when the power outage worsens and threatens to destroy not only Asario, but the da Vinci as well!
I thought everything was finally—possibly—falling into place. I had a place to live with my best friend, a job, and a nice man in my life. Never mind I'd been named Warden of the Garden to bring magic back, and my nice man was actually a Fallen Angel named Evangel. But...who's complaining?
My ex-husband, that's who. His past actions catch up with him and he blames me, our daughter, and everyone else.
Other problems brew when two cold cases dredge up past indiscretions the founding families of Ravenwood Hills do not want known, a new Elohim appears in town causing a bit of trouble, and one of our own loses his body.
When Elemental Witch Samantha Hawthorne discovers her lover, Crwys Holliard, is missing, she vows to find him. With the help of her friends and an Alpha Werewolf who just won't take no for an answer, Sam follows clues that point them in the direction of the realm of Faerie, a place Sam swore she would never return to.
The road to his rescue is blocked by conjured enemies, a power hungry Magician, a former ally and a warring Faerie queen, determined to make herself the ultimate ruler of the Faerie kingdoms.
Will Sam be able to rescue him, or will Crwys and Sam be parted from one another, forever?
Elemental Flame is the 4th book in the Eldritch Files.
Nearly twenty years later, in my CRV with a few suitcases and my cat, Pyewacket, I was over forty, divorced, daughter in college, no job, and no idea what to do with myself as I drove from Florida to Delaware to live with my best friend. Apparently my greater thing—twenty years later—is to bring magic back into the world. Angels (Elohim) don’t want that to happen. Luckily I have my best friend’s coven on my side, the last of the Fallen, and the Night Shades. In the other corner? Angels and Werewolves. Wings, claws, and teeth.
Maybe I should have stayed in Florida…
Elemental Witch and Magic Shop owner, Samantha Hawthorne, faces her future with the knowledge she was raised, taught, and groomed by the very evil responsible for the disappearance of her mother. Threads of Arcane Magic linger alongside the guilt Samantha endures for killing an innocent in her failed pursuit for revenge.
Now Clerics, the Witch’s Judiciary Branch, appear and request her aid in proving the self-appointed Witch Queen of New Orleans possesses the rumored Malleus Maleficarum, The Witch’s Hammer. They believe her command of the book’s Arcane power is responsible for the death of three Witch Elders.
But something else is rising in the city as reports of ghost sightings and evil shadows increase. Faced with a lingering fear her own use of Arcane Magic has tainted her in some way, mounting pressure with the threat of a warlock from the Clerics, and suspicion that the evil that escaped her is still influencing her decisions, Samantha calls upon her friends to weave their unique magic together to stop the rampage of Elemental Shadows.
Elemental Shadows is the second book in the Eldritch Files series.
MISSING: AN ENTIRE LIFE…
Oliver Martin had it all: a beautiful fiancée and a great job at a corp he helped build—a perfect life. But one morning, he wakes up to discover he no longer exists...anywhere. Oliver no longer has a job, a SIN, bank accounts, or even a place to live in his hometown of Boston. He’s been wiped from the Matrix entirely, and a new identity has replaced his own. Only this one’s on Lone Star’s Most Wanted List, and Oliver’s usual morning meeting with the company he’s been at for fourteen years turns into the first run of his life.
For his life.
Boston’s mean streets hold the keys to Oliver’s fight to reclaim himself and discover who’s behind his redacted identity. Allying with a shadowrunner team that saves him proves to be the vehicle he needs to uncover a conspiracy within the halls of MIT&T that could bring down the corporate walls of Boston—and create more vanished innocents caught in an algorithm of greed.
Before she can answer, the Alpha marks her with a bite in order to guarantee her assistance, and to declare her his mate should she fail.
Now it's a race against the Alpha’s venom to find the missing pack members while battling Ceremonial Magicians, revenge-seeking Clerics and Sam’s Arcane power that has suddenly acquired a voice of its own!
