Book/Author Spotlight: The Magic Thief: Home


The fourth book in the acclaimed Magic Thief series finds Conn back where he started—accused of being a thief. Filled with magic and wonder, The Magic Thief: Home transports readers to a land where a wizard’s apprentice must battle both his enemies and his past to protect the world he knows.

About the Book: Despite successfully securing a balance between the competing magics of Wellmet, Conn is not happy. Duchess Rowan has promoted him to ducal magister, but the other wizards see him only as a thief. But something sinister is brewing, as magicians’ locus stones are being stolen and magical spells are going awry. As Conn faces old enemies and powerful magical forces, is he strong enough to save the city he calls home?

About the Author: I’m a writer living in rural Iowa with a mad scientist husband, two kids, two dogs, two cats, chickens, and a bunch of goats.

My main thing is writing—I love to write, and talk about writing, and write emails to other writers. And reading. I read a lot. Mostly fantasy, but also romance and regular fiction.

I live on 40 acres out in the countryside, and I’m working to restore the woods and prairie. So basically I’m either writing or I’m outside working on the land, canoeing around our lake, hiking, or gardening. Or wrangling goats.

  1. This sounds like a great read for my ten year old grandsons. They are into magic and wizards. I didn’t realize it was a series. Thanks for the Spotlight.
