The Beltane Witch
by
Siobhan Muir


After almost two decades as a practicing witch in Cloudburst, Colorado, Sabrina Foxglove is done with men, magic, and the fertility rituals of High Beltane. She’s dealt with all three before and ended up with a young daughter and no partner. Twice. She’s looking forward to a magic-free May Day, with nothing more exciting than making brownies for a kindergarten class and decorating a May Pole. She definitely doesn’t have time for a handsome, Fae-touched man.

After almost two centuries as the human chamberlain to the Fae’s Summer Court, Darius Winterbourne is a man accustomed to getting his way. So when the Summer Queen tasks him with finding a witch to perform the annual rituals and strengthen the ancient warding magicks, he figures it should be easy. He doesn’t expect Sabrina’s hardheaded refusal, her untrained abilities, or his attraction to her. With less than a week to Beltane, he must gain Sabrina’s trust before he loses his home, his position…and his heart.

Where the Bulbul Sings
by

The past and the present interweave - from the last days of the Raj to the present day, and from the small railway town of Ajeemkot and the princely state of Walipur to the cutting edge of the modern city of Delhi, and Sivalik - a pine scented hill station in the foothills of the Himalayas. 


    In this atmospheric, passionate and poignant account of a clash of cultures, caste and creed, divided family loyalties, wealthy heartthrobs and the power of love, the story is told through three women  and an American Baptist missionary couple whose lives entwine.    Can they confront the storms or are their dreams destined to shatter?  
    Hermie - a headstrong and bewitching Anglo-Indian - turns her back on the Anglo-Indian community and reinvents herself only to find that a dark secret threatens to send her life spiralling out of control and cost her everything. 
Sharp-witted Edith, exiled in India from her native Germany by Nazi persecution, faces stark choices in a future very different from that she envisaged.
 Feisty Kay, separated by more than a generation from Hermie and Edith, is haunted by a family mystery and risks her prospects in London to pursue a quest for roots in India where fate hurtles her in an unexpected direction.

Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia 2014


It was a year ago, through participating in Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia 2013, that I decided to tell my whole family that I write books about gay men. I decided to tell them, despite the fact that they might think it strange for a straight woman to write about gay men, because it felt wrong to hide it. It felt as though it meant I was ashamed of it somehow, and after hearing so many horrific stories about people coming out to their families and the kind of abuse they faced, I felt like a coward for not coming clean.
I'm very lucky that my family is filled with wonderful people, and that I live in the U.K where views on same sex relationships is fairly open, though we still have a long way to go. My family were nothing but proud of me, as I should have expected.
Over the last year it has seemed to me that the world has taken several steps backwards in regards to homophobia and transphobia. It has been made illegal in several other countries to be gay or trans and it seems as though every day on FaceBook I'm seeing more and more acts of violence and hate.

We can't let ourselves get complacent or ever accept things the way they are. Now more than ever we need to keep pushing, keep educating people, or we risk the undoing of all the hard work done by those who have come before us.


"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

Jeff Lightfoot lusted after Julianna for years, even when he thought she was human. Now she’s home and all his—if she passes the tests. She’s his True Mate and he wants no one else, but pack politics trump Mother Nature and will prevent him from choosing Julianna if she fails.
