Meet the Characters – Nicole Carrigan

Every Thursday until #LexieSpells comes out, I thought I’d talk a little more about some of the main characters! Today, more on Lexie’s oldest sister, Nicole. She’s like Lexie’s second mom, and they’ve got a pretty close bond. […]

The Separation and the History of Magic

Being such a student of history, of course Lexie would want to know everything about history as it pertained to magic. Gavon, of course, is more than willing to oblige, telling her the story of the brief magical experiment that ended with a bloody two year war and the [...]

Meet the Characters – Marie Carrigan

Being the pain in the ass that she is, Marie's the one who ruins the big surprise. She appears in the kitchen as Aunt Jeanie and Lexie's other sister Nicole are trying to slowly lower the boom. Then, in pure Marie fashion, she conjures a sandwich in front of [...]

Potions and Healing, Oh My!

Lexie's sisters have two unique brands of magic. Her eldest sister, Nicole, is a potion-maker and her middle sister, Marie, is a healer. Potion-makers are almost like squibs from Harry Potter, except they do still have some magic, just not the usual kind. Their powers are limited to working with [...]

Meet the Characters – Lexie Carrigan

Born Alexis "Lexie" Renee Carrigan on October 18th, at the beginning of our story, Lexie's a pretty straight-laced, nerdy, eager-to-get-into-a-good-college kid from an upper middle class school in Florida. She's a sucker for history, not so great at chemistry, and is just trying to keep her head above water among [...]

Magical Systems in Spells and Sorcery

One of the nice things about having a book stuck in your head for almost twenty years is that you are able to think through a lot of different aspects of the world (bad thing: sometimes the world is so familiar to you that you forget to explain it). [...]
